History of Destiny Bible Church


Pastor Stephen Braswell began his work in the Lord in 1988 at Proffit’s Grove Baptist Church in Boone, NC.  He served for seven years as the Youth Director.  He met his future wife, Stacie, at youth camp in 1993.  They were married on June 11th, 1994.  After seeking God’s will for their life, they moved to Knoxville, TN to serve at Parkway Christian Fellowship in 1995.  Pastor Stephen served in various areas of the church for two years.


As Pastor Stephen and Stacie continued to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit, they found themselves drawn to RHEMA Bible Training Center, aka Kenneth Hagin Ministries, in Tulsa, OK.  While attending RBTC, Pastor Stephen and Stacie continued to build upon their foundation of God’s Word.  They were taught God’s Word in such a way that they began to better understand the leading of the Holy Spirit, living by faith, and walking in the fullness of God.


After much prayer and seeking God’s will, Pastor Stephen and his family moved to Lancaster, SC to serve as Associate Pastor at a church in Jefferson, SC.  They spent the next 2 ½ years learning all the aspects of the local church.


Early in 2003 the Lord called Pastor Stephen and Stacie to pioneer a church in Lancaster.  So on March 8, 2003 Destiny Bible Church was started in Pastor Stephen’s living room.  15 people were in attendance that first Sunday.  The church moved to a building not far from Pastor Stephen’s house.


Near the end of 2003, God moved in a mighty way as the church moved into the building where we are still meeting.  We have seen many miracles and have many testimonies as to how God has moved and worked to get us to this point.  We are very excited about the future as we walk out God’s Destiny for each of us!
