DESTINYMakers, Founder Doreen Lecheler
Doreen is a mindsetting consultant, international speaker, best-selling author, and Spirit-filled Christ follower. Best of all, she’s an “incurable” cancer conqueror who gets to live her passion and purpose - transforming people and growing lives into the fullness of GOD. Whether working with organizational leaders or the faithful body of Christ, Doreen facilitates processes that help others transform their behaviors by the renewing of their mind.
Doreen began her career in the mid-1980's, helping to progress several start-up Christian nonprofits into regionally, nationally, and internationally recognized organizations. She held senior leadership positions overseeing growth in program development, business development, and organizational advancement.
Since 2000, Doreen has consulted in business, government, education, nonprofits, and athletics, using researched-based tools and techniques for change and sustainable goal achievement.

Doreen has authored two books on personal and professional development. Growing from Potential to Performance and The Influence Zone: Leadership Intelligence that Ignites Results” each provide 30-days of inspiration, learning lessons, and reflection activities designed to upgrade the level of thinking, behavior, and meaningful, measurable results.
Doreen’s ability to guide outstanding personal achievement never became more critical than in 2009 with a cancer recurrence staged as “incurable” with metastases to the bone.

A Mission of Faith
For decades I’ve been teaching organizational leaders and their people how to unleash more of their God-given potential by showing them the psychology of peak performance and how to manage their mind. The business sector has been rewarding and profitable, but “politically correct” constraints mandate that I omit the very foundation and fount for our continuous growth and improvement – God Almighty!
While science agrees with God’s Word that you and I have an unlimited capacity for change and development (the Bible calls it “sanctification”), it cannot explain the origins or purpose for our limitless potential. Nonetheless, God’s principles are universal, and when applied, they reveal a reservoir of purpose, destiny, success, and significance in our lives.
Sadly, I’ve not witnessed the same level of growth and change in the Church that I’ve seen in the marketplace. Far too many of God’s children are stuck or stalled in ways that cause them to underlive their God-given destiny. Most are familiar with Romans 12:1-2, that we are not to conform our thinking to this world but be transformed by the renewing of our mind, but few know HOW to do that.
As adopted children of the Almighty, filled with the same spirit that raised Christ from the dead, we should be living heads and shoulders above others when it comes to abundant life and victorious living. I’m not talking about the absence of pain and conflict in life. I’m talking about living above our circumstances, constantly engaging our faith in the promises of God, focusing on what is unseen - the supernatural realities of the Kingdom.
If I could be boosting performance and teaching successful living in the secular marketplace, how much more could I help grow the purposefulness and power of the people of God by teaching them how to retrain their brain in order to be transformed by the renewing of their mind!!
I created DESTINYMakers.org to offer videos, articles, resources and programs that would encourage, enlighten and engage the people of God to live in the fullness of their God-given destiny. With scientific tools and biblical truths, DESTINYMakers is designed to help you grow deeper into the heart of the Father, the mind of Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit and do the works God has prepared in advance for you to live your most abundant destiny life!
Destiny Makers Statement of Faith
- WE BELIEVE there is one eternal, infinite, and perfect God who is the designer, creator, and sustainer of heaven and earth.
- WE BELIEVE this God is eternally represented in the three persons of the God-head: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
- WE BELIEVE Jesus Christ is the Word of God who came in fulfillment of the Hebrew Scriptures. He was born of the virgin Mary through the work of the Holy Spirit. He dwelt among us in the likeness of man, except he was without sin. He performed miraculous works as he did the will of the Father. He came as an atoning sacrifice for the sins of the world. He was crucified, died, buried, resurrected from the dead, ascended into heaven, and is now seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to establish his kingdom of righteousness and judge the saved from the damned.
- WE BELIEVE in God’s plan of grace and salvation for all humankind. Through Christ’s redemptive work alone, we are cleansed from our sinful nature and given the gift of eternal life for all who believe and testify to Christ’s shed blood as their personal, substitutionary sacrifice.
- WE BELIEVE in the power of the Holy Spirit, God’s deposit and guarantor, given to each believer to regenerate our lives and guide us in wisdom and truth.
- WE BELIEVE in the inerrant and inspired word of God, the Bible, which is alive and active, reveals God’s sovereign will for humankind, and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.
- WE BELIEVE in Jesus’ commission to the saints, that through the power of the Holy Spirit we are to be ambassadors of the kingdom and ministers of reconciliation as we go throughout the world preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ and creating unity among all believers.
