UNION CHURCH STORY
Pastor Stephen Chandler dreamed of planting a church with
a simple goal – helping people connect with God so that they
might fulfill their destiny; Jeremiah 29:11 being the foundational
source of that mission. This dream was birthed out of New Life
International Fellowship Church, a church founded by Pastor
Stephen’s father, Pastor Ron Chandler. With the help of the
Dream Team, servant leaders committed to seeing this
dream become a reality, Union Church (formerly Destiny
Harvest Church) launched on September 11, 2011.
From 2011 to 2014, thousands encountered Christ like never
before, and the church grew from one location in Woodlawn, MD
to two locations, by adding the Laurel, Maryland location. Through
prayer, in September 2015, Union Church moved to Columbia,
Maryland, merging both campuses back together and was portable
for 3 years. In February 2018, Union moved into its permanent location
in Columbia, Maryland, and went under a brand refresh, changing the
name to Destiny Church. Over the next year, attendance increased from
around 700 people in attendance on a Sunday with about 300 people
participating in 55 Connect Groups and 300 people serving on the Dream
Team, to over 3,000 people in attendance on a Sunday. Connect Groups
grew to over 1700 people participating in them, and over 800 people serving
on the Dream Team. This all happened within 3 years, making it one of the
fastest-growing churches in America according to Outreach magazine.
In February 2020, with much prayer and guidance the Baltimore County,
Maryland location was launched with nearly a thousand people attending the
first weekend. In April 2021, i5 Church and Destiny Church merged to
become what is now Union Church. We are one church in four locations,
soon to be five, with the January 2023 launch of our Union Charlotte (North
At Union Church, we believe that church should be a place where
everyone is able to know God, find freedom, discover purpose, and make a
difference. Through most of the last decade, Union Church has been
fulfilling its mission through weekend experiences, growth track, dream
team, and connect groups.
