About Destiny Church Glasgow
Destiny Church is a Christian church and ministry, which began life in Glasgow through founding pastors Andrew and Sue Owen. The church is called Destiny as we believe everyone has one! And we will help you find it.
Destiny church Glasgow is an international multilingual church-with more than 57 languages spoken amongst its members. The church has a small number of full-time paid staff-but a huge army of volunteers. We also have a powerful and vibrant youth ministry called Gnr8. The youth pastor for Gnr8 is Daniel Owen.
Destiny Glasgow offers quality leadership and discipleship training through it’s full and part time college, Destiny College.
Destiny church would be considered Pentecostal or Charismatic by some, in that there is considerable evidence amongst its participants of healings and life changing supernatural power at work. Pastor Andrew Owen describes the church as a contemporary apostolic Christian movement that thinks like social entrepreneurs.
Today, Destiny churches are established throughout Scotland, Germany, India and Kenya. These churches are inter-dependant, and work together as a family of churches.
They are non-denominational, and hold to traditional evangelical Christian values, but express church life in a modern contemporary way. You will find lively worship with lots of home grown songs, a very relevant Bible teaching programme for all ages and a loving family and community, into which you are warmly welcomed to Destiny Church Glasgow.
