Destiny Church was founded over 30 years ago as the Caboolture AOG. The church was originally established as an outreach of Brisbane Northside AOG (now Nexus Church), which was then under the leadership of John Lewis. As part of the church plant a parcel of land was purchased which is now the location of the church facilities.
In 1989 Michael and Karen Mackerell were appointed senior leaders of the church. Michael and Karen have faithfully served in this role for over 20 years, allowing them to develop strong links with the local community and other local church leaders.
In the late 1990’s the church played a strong role in the growth of the “cell church” movement, where regular meeting of smaller groups of people “from house to house” was restored to the wider church, providing genuine fellowship and care. The Australian Cell Church Network was hosted by the church for several years. Small group fellowship remains central to family life at Destiny Church Caboolture to this day.
In 2000 the church took the new name of “Caboolture Christian Church” Then, in 2011, after a season of God visiting His church in a fresh and powerful way, the church decided to adopt it’s current name “Destiny Church”. This name reflects the way in which we see God unleashing people into their destinies by encountering them with His love, His truth and His presence.
