With thousands of members, both churches became well-known for their vibrant cultures and dedication to bringing entire families into a passionate relationship with God.

Pastors Stephen and Jimmy embarked on a new mission in 2020 that would bring two vibrant congregations together, following months of prayer and direction from overseers and elders. The merger of Destiny Church and i5 City Church, formed the Union Church on April 4th, 2021. On Psalm 133:1, Union Church was established.
