Our Story

Pastor Chad Rowe, a native Texan, along with his wife Marla are the founders of Destiny World Outreach Center located in Killeen, Texas. They have been serving the Central Texas region in ministry for over 20 years.


Destiny is the fastest growing multi cultural church in the Central Texas area. In only 13 years, Destiny has grown from 20 members to over 5000 members. Our pastors attribute this growth to the grace of God and the desire to partner with ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary things for His Kingdom.


Pastor Chad ministers with a heart-felt compassion to see people living free and blessed. He is a highly sought after speaker in conferences and churches across the country. His passion for the Word of God and his message of hope is contagious. As result, Pastor Chad has impacted lives all over the world. He also hosts the annual “Iron Man” men’s conference held on the campus of Destiny and serves on the board of the “Night of Hope” events with Pastor Joel Osteen.


Pastor Marla Rowe is a well-known, gifted and talented vocalist. Her heart is to empower, inspire and uplift individuals through the message of hope. Her debut recording, Live at Destiny, has sold thousands of copies all over the world. She is also the co-pastor of Destiny World Outreach Center in Killeen, Texas alongside of her husband.


Her passion and love for God is genuine and it comes across as she ministers in both Word and song, penetrating hearts with the love of God.


Each year, Pastor Marla hosts the annual “SuperModel” women’s conference. This event takes place each summer on the Destiny campus and always includes a powerful list of guest speakers.


Pastor Chad and Marla have three children, MaCayla, Chaston and Addison.
