Jody Destry

Movement & Services Pastor

Jody Destry arrived in sunny Melbourne in July 2013 to join the pastoral team alongside husband Matt at Discovery Church.

Before making Melbourne her home Jody lived in Sydney where she was a social worker for many years while also serving in her local church as the young adults pastor before embarking on a church planting journey in the city of Sydney.

Jody is completely passionate about seeing people discover their unique gifts and calling and seeing them equipped and released to make a difference for Jesus in the world. Jody is a lover of seeing people changed and transformed and living the life they were destined to live.

A lover of fashion, photography and all things vintage, you’ll often find Jody exploring one of Melbourne’s many hidden gems in search of the perfect coffee, the latest pop up store or snapping pics in one of Melbourne’s incredible laneways.

Jody and Matt were married in 2001. About 6 years later in 2007 their daughter Lucy arrived on the scene closely followed by their son Finn a couple of years later. They are 2 of the most amazing little people around!
