BELIEFS

Destination is a non-denominational church that loves and follows the Jesus we see in the New Testament. We believe in the final authority of the Bible, the trinity, Jesus' divinity, the person and work of the Holy Spirit, the reality and severity of sin, and salvation by grace alone through faith.

HISTORY

HOW WE STARTED.

PASTORS

IMG_0428

Matt Sweetman

Founding Pastor

Matt was born 1979 and grew up in Brighton, England. He moved to the U.S. in 2004. He is married to Heather and they have four children: Jones, Macrae, Paisley, and Finley. After pursuing a marketing career and simultaneously completing Trilogy (three-year biblical studies), he felt called to start a church. They moved to St. Louis for a year of Church Planting Training, and then in April 2009 planted Destination Church.

Andy Tommelleo

Pastor

Andy Tommelleo hails from Steelers country (Western PA), a childhood devout Catholic who never wanted to become a priest. After encountering Jesus in his 20's, he now finds it slightly ironic to have become a pastor. A former camera guy & editor, he manages a video company by day, writes and makes music by morning and night, and loves photographing the city at all times.

Kyle Van Someren

Pastor
