Our Pastors

Steve and Jackie Vaggalis

Pastor Steve Vaggalis, along with his wife Jackie, founded Destiny Worship Center, located in Destin, Florida. While the vision of Destiny began with a few families in a living room in 2001; God has used this church over the past two decades to reach a region in Northwest Florida.

In addition to founding Destiny, Pastor Steve has helped to plant multiple churches as well as Gateway Academy; a private Christian school in Miramar Beach, Florida. He is passionate for the local church, as well as helping people fulfill their God-given Destiny.

Pastor Steve married his wife Jackie on July 23, 1988.  They are beyond blessed to have their eldest son, Steven and his wife, Tiffany, as well as their youngest son, Victor and his wife, Samantha, serve alongside them in ministry. Together as a family, they enjoy golf, travel, and being grandparents.

Steven and Tiffany Vaggalis

Pastor Steven Vaggalis, along with his wife Tiffany, are passionate about Reaching People and Building Lives. Having been on the team since 2008, and with Destiny since its inception, Pastor Steven has dedicated his life to serving the vision God birthed through his parents in 2001.

While Pastor Steven spent over a decade serving in Church Operations, he has truly found his passion communicating the Gospel both in word and in song. In addition to launching Destiny campuses, he has founded the Disciple Me app that reaches people throughout our nation teaching them how to read and apply the Bible to their every day life. Pastor Steven also serves with Destiny Worship Music and is passionate about creating music that will both strengthen the local church and encourage believers everywhere.

Pastor Steven and his wife Tiffany married in January of 2018 and are blessed to have two children: Sophia Rayne and Elijah Jacob. They love family, and are blessed to be surrounded by family as they do life together.
