Pastor Steve Vaggalis, along with his wife Jackie, founded Destiny Worship Center, located in Destin, Florida. He earned a bachelor degree in Theology from Liberty Bible College. He and his family planted Destiny Worship Center in October 2001 and through his leadership the church has grown from one hundred people, in their first meeting, to over four thousand through their four regional campuses.

He also has planted and helped plant, several other churches. His vision is to help people fulfill their God-given destiny by Bridging Denominations, Making Disciples, Building Families, and Transforming Communities.

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 with them in ministry. Together as a family, they enjoy family time, golf and travel.
