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. More.


At Destination we are all about building communities loyal to Jesus


  • We worship deeply and pray fervently – we believe Jesus is central to everything
  • We preach grace not guilt – otherwise people don’t really change
  • We embrace the Word and the Spirit – the Bible is about a relational God who speaks and acts
  • We serve the needs of the city and share about Jesus
  • We think people are awesome
  • We innovate where it matters and imitate … where it matters
  • We value the organic and the organized
  • We expect quality – but realize that everyone makes mistakes
  • We intentionally make space for new leaders
  • We build strong teams and turn them loose
  • We love starting and growing churches


Read about how we started.



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


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


Kyle Van Someren joined Destination Church in 2009. He and his wife, Alissa, welcomed their son, Zander, in May of 2016. Kyle works in the financial industry and enjoys running and being outdoors. He grew up attending a traditional church and the gospel of grace transformed his life at an early age. He and Alissa have served internationally through various missions organizations and both have a passion for the gospel to reach all nations.

Although we are a non-denominational church, we are neither isolated nor independent.

Destination Church is part of an expanding global family of churches called Newfrontiers, with 1200+ churches in over 60 nations. We desire to revive, establish, and reproduce the kind of churches we read about in the New Testament.
