Senior Pastors Dr. Jerry & Jean Howell

Pastor Jerry and Jean Howell began Destiny Christian Center in 1993 after receiving a word from God.  The Word from Isaiah 66:1 "Where is the house you will build for Me, and where will My resting place be?" They began and have continued to create an atmosphere dedicated to the presence of God. The Sanctuary is not only a place for His Presence, but a 'House' of His rest. They have traveled to many parts of the world releasing the Healing Anointing and introducing the reality of the Holy Spirit. Dr. Howell earned a Bachelor of Arts from Dallas Baptist University in 1972, and a Masters of Theology and Doctor of Ministry from Covington Seminary in1 1989.
