About DSM

DSM Logo


It is our desire for you to experience a well-rounded view of the ministry. We seek to prepare you to attain your destiny and what God has purposed for your life. Through practical experience and the process  of three short years, Jesus taught twelve untrained men to reach a lost world. God desires that we do the same. The goal of this Theological Seminary is to equip the Body of Christ in excellence and integrity in education and ministry.

Destiny School of Ministry is a three-, four-, five-, or seven-year Bible Institute. Work completed here is transferable to other seminaries with which we affiliate.

Destiny School of Ministry is an outreach of Evangel Association of Churches and Ministries (EACM) and is covered under their 501©3. Welcome to a place to discover how you can be used of God to change the world!

Our Vision

Our vision is to teach and equip students in the Word and in challenging practical Christian service through the impartation of knowledge, experience and the anointing. Also, bring a balance between the academic and practical approach in ministry. Our curriculum is designed to develop every area which is vital for stability, strength, and growth in a ministry, church or minister. The coursework covers a wide variety of relevant topics.

Is God Calling You To Minister?

We offer ministerial credentials for lay and ordained ministers. We celebrate God's gifts to us for the sake of ministry through our culturally diverse environment and extension sites equipped to serve you as you grow in the Lord.

Dr. Jerry Piscopo


The President’s Vision And Purpose

Inside each and every believer is a desire to do something great for God; to be effective for the Kingdom. There is a need to train and equip the saints of God for ministry in the Body of Christ today. Our goal, as a Bible College, is to prepare a people who desire training in the Word of God, as well as practical Christian service. Here at Destiny School of Ministry, we raise up men and women to know who they are in Christ and to be reproducers of themselves to impact the Church of Jesus Christ.

Our goal is to educate students and prepare them to do the work of the ministry; to rightly divide the Word of Truth and to build the Kingdom of God.

Dean - Chancellor

Here at Destiny School of Ministry, we hope to provide you with quality education in God's Word and the practical experience of ministry. We desire that students not only experience change, but that they are effective in facilitating change in others.

In all my years of training in the area of dance, there was both the instruction and the practicum. I would spend hours studying terminology of the body and its muscles and parts to gain understanding, as well as reading the lives and careers of those who went before me. Many class sessions resulted in intense earning to train my body to do what seemed like the impossible at the time. What was key was the fact that I was being trained. I was preparing for when the opportunity arose to bring the beauty of the dance to those who would come to enjoy it. Likewise, studying God's Word and training up in the work of the ministry is the heart desire of God for His people.

Come to Destiny, where you will be challenged, equipped and prepared in the call God has for your life. We want your life to make a difference for the cause of Christ!
