Our story goes as far back as 2011 when Pastor Stephen Chandler launched Destiny Harvest Church in Woodlawn, Maryland. Our vision has always been to impact lives by making church as accessible as possible to as many people as possible.
2020 saw us add our first campus traction with the launch of our Baltimore County (UBC) location. In 2021, Destiny would become Union Church and expand its reach with the addition of the BWI location. In 2022, Union launched its fourth campus in Bowie, Maryland (Flowers). In 2023, Union launched their first two locations out of Maryland in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Falls Church, Virginia.
At Union, we exist for one thing – to unite people to purpose by helping them know God, find freedom, discover purpose, and make a difference. We are amazed by what God is doing but aren’t stopping here; what happens next will be beyond what we can imagine.
Pastors Stephen and Zai Chandler are the bold, encouraging, life-giving senior pastors of Union Church. They share this same passion: to see people discover their God-given destiny and united to their purpose. They have given their lives to helping others find fulfillment.
Between the two of them, they have over 20 years of ministry experience. Before Union Church, Pastor Stephen and Zai pastored Destiny Church for over 10 years. Currently, they reside in Bowie, MD, with their three children Zoe, Roman and Jade.
