Destiny Christian Center International was founded by Bishop Keith O’Neal in 2006 with eight people that met in his living room. Bishop Keith articulated the vision as God gave him I Samuel 22:1-2 as a foundational text. The first service was held on January 22, 2006 at the Muncie YWCA with about seventy five people in attendance. Many friends and well-wishers attended the first service and the church began regular services the following Sunday with about thirty five people. The church began to grow steadily and in November of 2006 moved to 3450 N. Broadway; a former physical fitness center. A second service was added in July of 2008 because of the rapid growth.
In June of 2009, Destiny purchased the former Springwater Park, consisting of 22.35 acres of park, baseball diamond, basketball court, and a 12,000 square foot building. After three months of renovations, the first service was held in the new location on September 20, 2009. The church continued to grow and construction of a children’s wing was initiated after just five months in the new location. The children’s wing was completed in 2010 with an additional 4,000 square feet being added. An additional service was added to the Sunday schedule. Parking areas were expanded to accommodate the growing needs. In the summer of 2015, another building expansion was initiated due to the continued growth of the ministry. Just under 6,000 square feet of sanctuary, offices, and ministry space was added to total over 21,000 square feet under roof. The newly expanded facility opened Thanksgiving weekend in 2015 and can accommodate over 700 worshipers. The Sunday service schedule has remained 9:00am and 11:00am.
Currently, Destiny continues to make an impact with its dynamic worship style, relevant preaching, and Kingdom focus. Destiny endeavors to win the lost in East Central Indiana and have significant influence around the world through various mission efforts. Come and join us as we enthusiastically worship our God and give Him the glory that is due His matchless name!
