“You saw the 18 years of everything they said they had been about come to fruition.”

When Billy and Randi Heather felt called to plant a church in Fredonia, NY, they wanted the blessing of their home church and pastors, Obed and Lissette Martinez in Indio, CA.
Randi is part of a family of seven who helped start Destiny Church in a living room in Southern California. Billy was diagnosed with cancer and found Christ and healing at Destiny. They became youth pastors and campus pastors and determined they would be at Destiny Church forever. So when they sensed a call to plant a church in a small town in New York, they prayed for two years and then shared with their pastors.
Pastors Obed and Lisette decided to approach this dream of their spiritual children with the same care as their own children.
After launching Gospel Church in January 2022, Billy and Randi have seen physical, spiritual, and financial miracles as they reach their community with the love of Christ.
Check out this church planter story to see how healthy, supportive relationships between senior pastors and church planters advances the Kingdom and how God can do the impossible when we approach church planting with selfless, courageous love.

    Hi My first time visit at Gospel Church. I attended the 9:00 a.m. service in felt compelled to stay for the 10:00 a.m. service. I must say I was very inlighting of the message. Very friendly and welcoming.
