Pastors & Leadership
Pastors Robb & Cheri Stancer have been in full time ministry for over 24 years, and have served in the metro Detroit area since 1993. In 2010, God called them to plant a church to serve the western suburbs, and on December 18th, 2010, Destiny Worship Center had its first service.
Pastor Robb is a graduate of Friends University, and his music studies have been the springboard for his passion to present the Gospel message in creative ways through illustrated sermons, drama, multi-media, and music. A worshipper at his core, Pastor Robb’s desire is that believers live each day of their lives in intimacy with God, and in expectation that He is faithful to fulfill His promises!
Pastor Cheri is an alumni of Central Bible College with a Bachelor of Arts in Pastoral Ministries, a ‘Preacher’s Kid,’ a mom, and a mentor. Together with Pastor Robb, she has pastored in youth, singles, and motorcycle ministries, and leads Destiny’s women’s ministry, FLAVOR. In the midst of juggling her roles as a mother, a pastor, and a job in corporate America, Pastor Cheri’s heart is to equip the women of God and the body of Christ to live victoriously, and to walk in the fullness of who God has created us to be!
