Meet The Leadership

Dr. William Hepfner Th.D. & Assoc. Pastor Regina Hepfner B.Th.

Our  Jewish-born leader, Dr. William Hepfner, grew up being referred to as  "Little Moses." This Nickname was the result of having been left on a  family’s doorstep, in a wicker basket at the age of 3 months (just like  Moses was left in the bulrushes at 3 months). Within  the following year, the family adopted him. Throughout his lifetime;  William attended various denominational churches until he received the  Lord in 1980 and became Baptized with the infilling of the Holy Spirit. 


For  the next ten years William grew in the Lord and played his trumpet in  every praise band he could find. When not in Church; he preached on  street corners. In  the early 90's, William was received into Sweetwater Bible College. In  1993, William graduated and was transferred to Mesa, AZ and became an  International Pentecostal Holiness Church (IPHC) Pastor.

 
Because  of his passion for the Lord, many people found salvation in Jesus the  Messiah. Pastor Hepfner continued to be a vessel used by the Lord with  signs and wonders following his ministry with Prophetic revelation, healing, and deliverance; raising the dead. He is very careful to give  ‘all credit to the Lord’. He continued to spend many evenings on the  streets, ministering to those in need. In 2003, after attending the  IPHC’s Church Planters School, the IPHC designated Life's Destiny Church  as a "Mother Church" wherein they went on to "birth" 6 new Church  plants.

 
However,  because Pastor Hepfner is Jewish, he believed the Lord was calling him  back to his “Jewish Roots”. In 2006, after a year of Torah (Old  Testament) studies, his ministry incorporated services for Messianic  Jews on Saturday, in addition to the regular services for Christians on  Sunday.
