Let’s Do Something Great Together!
Destiny is an organization focused on leveraging resources toward common purposes in the Kingdom of God. We coach and train Christian leaders helping to develop higher levels of effectiveness and excellence in their personal, spiritual, and professional lives, as well as provide opportunities for cooperative ministry activities. Our organization is composed of Christian leaders from virtually every stream of Christian faith and endeavor.
Destiny is your one-stop source for innovative cutting-edge ministry solutions. If you’re looking for leadership development, or maybe you need ministry credentials or legal covering for your church or ministry, all these things are available through Destiny’s Church and Minister’s Network. We offer leadership training through our Leadership Institute, a wide variety of missions opportunities, as well as ministry enrichment seminars, ministry advances and conventions – all kinds of special events designed to help you be the very best you can be.
Our core values are the fuel that drives Destiny and the force that holds us true to our mission. Below is a list of values we share as a covenant community.
We are lifelong learners. We are stimulated and challenged by new experiences and ideas that move the Kingdom and our lives forward. Therefore, we value and place great emphasis on the educational process. While Jesus Christ is certainly our Savior, we also have great appreciation for Jesus as the Master Teacher and Guide and seek to follow His example with His disciples as they learned and then transmitted that knowledge to others. We are committed to providing a wide range of educational and developmental opportunities for leaders at all experience and responsibility levels.
Our view of leadership is best understood through service to others. We lead by serving. But we also recognize that serving creates influence. We, therefore, seek to equip those who serve to be efficient and effective in their pursuit and performance of leadership responsibilities. We seek to encourage influencers to develop the core biblical concepts and intelligence to serve with excellence and humility.
VALUE DRIVEN VISION
Habakkuk Chapter 2:2, “Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it.” The writer of Proverbs also says that “without a vision the people perish.”
Vision is an essential component for achievement in the Kingdom. At Destiny we believe that for our organization’s vision to be shared with others and achieved collectively, it must be value driven. Its importance must be embraced by all associated with Destiny. Therefore, our vision statement is a summation of our collective values. Each word carries meaning.

What We Believe
In one true and living God who revealed Himself as the Father, Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit, perfect in love and righteousness in all His ways – That God, who discloses Himself through His creation, has spoken in the words and events of redemptive history. This history is fulfilled in Jesus Christ, the Word who became flesh, the agent of creation and sustainer of all that is.
The Authority Of Scripture
That the Holy Scriptures, Old and New Testaments, are the inspired, infallible, and revealed Word of God – We believe they are the authoritative source of Christian doctrine and precept, that they are God breathed and without error in their original manuscripts.
The Lord Jesus Christ
That our Lord Jesus Christ lived a sinless life – We affirm His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His bodily ascension into Heaven, and His imminent return to earth. We affirm that Jesus is Lord of all.
Our Doctrine Of Man
That man was created in the image of God, but as a result of sin, is lost and powerless to save himself – Man’s only hope of salvation is to be redeemed and delivered from the power of sin and death through faith in the Blood of Jesus Christ, who died for our sins and rose again according to the Holy Scriptures.
That God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female – These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God (Gen 1:26-27). Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person.
That God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ (Acts 3:19-21; Rom 10:9-10; 1 Cor 6:9-11)
That every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity (Mark 12:28-31; Luke 6:31) – Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with Scripture nor the doctrines of Destiny Ministries.
The Work Of The Holy Spirit
That the Holy Spirit, as the fulfillment of the Promise, reveals the truth of God’s Word and endues men and women with power to live righteous and holy lives and to be witnesses of Christ in this world – We believe that the Holy Spirit provides the Body of Christ and its members with the gifts needed for living victoriously and accomplishing its purpose in the earth. We believe all the gifts of the Holy Spirit are available to Christians today.
In The Church
In the Church, as the Body of Christ in this world, and that it is composed of all those who believe in Jesus Christ and have been spiritually regenerated by the Holy Spirit through the Grace of God
In the ordinances of the Church including water baptism symbolizing one’s death, burial, and resurrection with Christ Jesus, in holy matrimony (marriage as defined by the Scriptures), and observances of the Lord’s Supper acknowledging His broken body and shed blood as the New Covenant between God and man
That the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture (Gen 2:18-25) – We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other (1 Cor 6:18; 7:2-5; Heb 13:4).
That God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman
That any form of sexual immorality (including adultery, fornication, homosexual behavior, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, and use of pornography) is sinful and offensive to God (Matt 15:18-20; 1 Cor 6:9-10)
That in order to preserve the function and integrity of Destiny Ministries as a part of the Body of Christ, and to provide a biblical role model to the Destiny Ministries members and the community – It is imperative that all persons employed by Destiny Ministries in any capacity, or who serve as volunteers, agree to and abide by this Statement on Marriage, Gender, and Sexuality (Matt 5:16; Phil 2:14-16; 1 Thess 5:22).
The Sanctity Of Human Life
That all human life is sacred and created by God in His image – Human life is of inestimable worth in all its dimensions, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition from conception through natural death. We are therefore called to defend, protect, and value all human life (Ps 139).
Our Final Spiritual Authority
The Statement of Faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind, is the sole and final source of all that we believe. For purposes of Destiny Ministries’ faith, doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline, our Director along with the Destiny Board of Directors is Destiny Ministries’ final interpretive authority on the Bible’s meaning and application.
Statement To Limit Employment Opportunities Based On Religious Grounds
Destiny Ministries reserves the right to limit employment opportunities to those who willingly adhere and pledge in writing to agree with the Statement of Faith and the Code of Christian Conduct stated in Destiny Ministries’ Constitution and By-Laws.
About Our Directors
For more than twenty-five years, Phil and Cathy Brassfield have served the Lord in various ministry capacities. Phil was called by God at a young age to develop leaders. For many years, he has been a trailblazer and designer of innovative and non-traditional ministry and educational concepts. He has served in almost every position imaginable in the local church, including Senior Pastor, and in a variety of executive positions with three different non-traditional Christian Colleges whose primary focus was equipping leaders in partnership with the local church. As the Lord continued to develop him as a Leader, He eventually brought into clear focus Phil’s life, vision and mission. That vision would prove to be Destiny Ministries.
As a seminar and conference speaker, Phil addresses relevant issues confronting leaders in both the religious and secular arenas. His message of grace, hope, and love, coupled with keen insight into life’s fundamental issues, has offered a light of God’s direction to many on their journey through life.
His wife, Cathy, holds a degree in Biblical Studies and serves as a role model to countless women in ministry. She is an intercessor and also manages the Destiny Business Office.
