Cracks appearing in Destiny Church

There are cracks appearing in the Destiny Church. One of Bishop Brian Tamaki’s most important lieutenants, Richard Lewis, and left  and is setting up his own church.

His departure is the latest in string of high profile members leaving Destiny Church. Janine Cardno, the church’s media spokeswoman for many years, and Paul and Michelle Hubble, who had been with Destiny leader Brian Tamaki since 1990, quit Destiny last year

Lewis, a former police detective and political candidate, is believed to be starting his own church and will this Sunday start preaching at the Dream Centre, a community facility in Manukau City from which seven other churches operate.

Associate Professor Peter Lineham of Massey University, who was granted access to the inner workings of the church when he wrote the book Destiny says,  “I think very few of the church’s achievements would have been possible without the firm hand of Richie Lewis behind because Brian [Tamaki] is a dreamer, an inspirational type of person.”
