Broken Chains – Outreach Ministry


For over 10 years now, we have brought hope to the neighborhoods of Reno and Sparks through this amazing ministry. Every Sunday after service we go out to meet the needs of hundreds of people. We are there not just to provide food but to help them understand who they are in God’s eyes and lead them into an encounter with the radical love of God. We have seen countless lives transformed and many signs and wonders. Adopt a Block also distributes over 200 Thanksgiving Baskets and Turkeys each year, hosts a yearly Egg Hunt and Outreach Event to over 100 children and hosts an annual outreach church service and barbeque at one of our parks. Please see “Services” for times and locations.

Street Ministry

We enjoy taking the love of God out to the public. Street ministry reaches the lost. The lost means everybody that does not know Jesus, not just select groups. We have had radical encounters with people and have seen God move in many people’s lives. If you want to experience the power of God and meet amazing people this ministry is definitely for you!

Children’s Ministry of Destiny

We believe that building a Bible based foundation with our kids is one of the most important aspects of Sunday morning. We know that having on fire adults and youth leaders that take the time each Sunday to build a solid foundation will bring our future pastors, teachers, and leaders into their destiny. With the help of Jesus and the Holy Spirit, we work hard to make sure that our kids are held to the same standards as the adults. We teach about all of the gifts that we have been given by the Lord and encourage and support our kids stepping up and stepping out in faith.

Worship Team

Our desire for the worship team is to build skilled musicians and vocalists whose greatest desire is to seek God’s Presence through worship. We are constantly looking for new ways to express our worship to God and encourage our congregation to do so as well. Our music is very up beat and full of passion and desire for God.

Areas to Serve

We believe it’s important to find a way to serve others, and not just come to church to get something, but to give something. If Destiny is your home church, please see one of these people to find a way to help.
