First Lady Marilyn


Marilyn P. Allen is the wife of Steve O. Allen, I, Pastor and Founder of Destiny Christian Center. Marilyn has diligently supported and worked with her husband in ministry since DCC’s beginning in 1999.

In March of 2002, she became the founder of Women of Destiny in order to minister to the needs of women.  The ministry is designed to transfer those who have been wounded or are lost into virtuous women who are clothed in strength and dignity. Along with ministering to the needs of her church family, Marilyn often speaks to congregations in the area of women’s issues and marriage.

God has also placed the importance of health and fitness in the heart of Marilyn. In 2005, she began a fitness ministry at DCC, Walking in the Spirit, where women gather for exercise and aerobics, along with tips on healthy eating and lifestyle choices.

Marilyn is a woman of God who loves Him with her whole heart.  Through the use of her testimony, Marilyn has become a beacon of hope to women and families everywhere. Because of her strength and tenacious spirit, many marriages have been reconciled and countless families have flourished. It is her desire to see families prosper in all areas as we take this world for the Kingdom.

Pastor Steve and Marilyn have been married for over 29 years and have two wonderful children, Brittany and Steve, II.
