About our Pastors

Samuel and Kiri Tamaki are the Pastors of Destiny Church Gold Coast.  They were ordained Pastors in October 2004 having been largely involved in Youth work they later became Senior Elders in Destiny Church Auckland working in all major aspects of church ministry. They are a couple who have devoted their youth and adult life to Jesus Christ and His Church.  After receiving the call of God to Pastor Destiny Church in Australia they made the move from New Zealand in December 2013 with their 4 children to Gold Coast.

They have a desire to see Christ presented in a fresh and new way with the belief that many who have lost their faith will return, and those who haven’t yet experienced Jesus Christ would feel His love through the church.

Samuel and Kiri take a creative approach to doing church and see it as much more than just a Sunday morning gathering.  The preached word is always compelling and real, being a gifted and provocative communicator Samuel preaches with the sole intent of seeing people come to the knowledge of Christ and then live in the fullness of Him.

Simplicity of heart and faith is their approach to church ministry and fanning into flame the gift of God that is in every believer is their ultimate purpose through the church.

“Love God, Love People” – Matthew 22:37-40
