Destiny Christian Center is a church affiliated with the Assemblies of God, a Pentecostal denomination.


We envision a Christ-like, Spirit-led, dynamic, multi-ethnic church that disciples people and empowers them to impact the City of Syracuse.


We reach people with the gospel to equip them to be fully devoted followers of Christ.


Serve God

Serve others

Serve the world


For some time, Rev. Chris Cooper felt a divine tug to start a church on the north side of Syracuse, NY.  In 2003, the tug became a reality and Destiny Christian Center was born.

For the first couple of years after Destiny Christian Center established itself as an official Assemblies of God church, they met in a local school auditorium. In the fall of 2008, God blessed us with our current facility on the corner of Turtle and Spring Streets.

Since then, we have blossomed and welcomed both an African Nation and a Nepali church, which meet within the walls of Destiny Christian Center.


In 2017 Rev. Chris Cooper moved on to pursue God's calling in Niagara Falls, and we welcomed Rev. Jeff Stonecipher as our new senior pastor.


Today we are a growing and thriving community, seeking God's will for our lives and praying for our city.
