What We Do...

Destiny Manifest is the ministry of Bruce and Jean Hammond who are servants of Jesus Christ with a unique ability to bring understanding, clarity, and insight.

Through a combination of practical knowledge and the leading of the Holy Spirit (Romans 12:6 and 1 Corinthians 12:8,10) we bring freedom to people who often have felt like there is nowhere else to turn for answers. As a believer in Christ, everyone should experience the joy of knowing truth in the innermost being (Psalm 51:6). The inner life often takes a back seat as people struggle to make their way through life and in effect ignore the deep places of hurt or lack of emotional foundation in their souls. These hurts, or areas of lack, eventually end up affecting their relationships, work life, and destiny.

           Audio Interview with Bruce and Jean

Jesus said He came to “heal the broken hearted” (Luke 4:18-NASB). The apostle John takes it a step further: “Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers” (3 John 1:2 -NASB).

We believe that as a person comes to prosper in their soul and understands truth in their innermost being, they will not only enjoy a healthy emotional life, but their relationships, work life, and fulfillment will be greatly enhanced. Destiny will manifest.

Who We Help...

Those Needing Insight and Understanding: We help people who have the following questions: Why do I feel invisible? Why do I have the same destructive relationship patterns? Why have I always been plagued with fears and insecurity? Why don’t I feel loved by God or people? Why don’t I feel fulfilled even though I am doing “God’s work”? Why do I feel drained by the expectations of others? Why do I not feel valuable? Why do others not see my value? Where should I draw the line with my giving? How do I submit my gifts and strengths to God so that people do not take advantage? (2 Chronicles 9:7, Philemon 1:14, 1 Peter 5:2)

Leaders: Some individuals are natural leaders, well-educated, well-trained, and highly motivated, and yet cannot seem to fully realize their destiny. Many do not understand their value and unique design. Others feel a sense of having to perform for God’s acceptance and as a result do not find their true purpose. This can be found among the highest level corporate executives and ministers. God is in the business of restoring the inner foundation so His children’s destiny can manifest to the external world.

Couples: Committed couples who sincerely desire a healthy relationship are often confused with their inability to connect to one another. They feel as though they have hit an impasse. When they begin to understand how their own hurts and past experiences influence the relationship, they find restoration and healing. As they begin to understand their partner, they can become a supportive advocate in the process. Through practical knowledge and the leading of the Holy Spirit we help to identify the couple's core issues.

Those Needing Placement: Often the greatest strength of the individual is the greatest point of struggle. The Leader is often plagued by thoughts about their inability to lead. People gifted to connect at a deep level find themselves disconnected. The “enemy of our souls” (John 10:10) strikes us in our greatest strength; not only to discourage the use of our gifts, but to push us to overuse the gifts in order to deplete us. In addition, the years of God’s refining and testing (Psalm 105:17-22, 1 Peter 1:6-7), particularly for leaders, can bring about a great deal of discouragement (Hebrews 12:5). Understanding God’s processes and the “big picture” can be a great encouragement and help to clarify the unique role each person has in God’s kingdom.

Those Desiring Greater Intimacy With God: God often manifests His presence in an intimate way with those we minister. As we minister God’s understanding, compassion, and reassurance, people feel drawn into a deeper relationship with Him.

What God Does Through Destiny Manifest

*I highly recommend the services of Destiny Manifest.  They've been an important part of my journey as a safe place to process my life and work around the globe.
Marcus Young, President Divine Inheritance

*I highly recommend Destiny Manifest Ministries.   My personal background is varied-I grew up Catholic and studied to be a priest, have been in charismatic circles, had my own inner-healing and deliverance ministry for 20 years, and have been an executive for several businesses the past 45 years.  When I came to see Bruce and Jean I can honestly say I experienced something very unique.  They were able to understand some of the mindsets and emotional issues from the past that followed me, both in my spiritual and natural life. 
The ministry is truly God-inspired and has helped not only me, but my family, and countless others I have referred to them.  Everyone I have sent to them has had positive things to say about the freedom and insight they received from this Holy Spirit-led ministry.  If you are needing freedom mentally, emotionally, and spiritually that goes far beyond traditional counseling; you will not be disappointed.       
Jack Christians, Businessman/Minister

*We had the pleasure of hosting Destiny Manifest Ministries for three consecutive Wednesday night gatherings at our church. Tears flowed as the Holy Spirit revealed many deep seated and hidden belief systems that, once exposed and prayed through, began a powerful process of inner healing for our people.  Bruce and Jean are excellent teachers and communicators but most importantly they are sensitive to the voice of the Holy Spirit and are gentle and loving to God's people.  Personally I have grown to love and respect them very much and I certainly recommend them to any pastor for ministry to God's people. 
Rev. Blake Nicodemus,  Our Father's House Community Church, Mt. Juliet, TN

*Bruce and Jean are a powerfully dynamic team and a true gift. Through their process of discussion, discernment and prayer - they provided me cogent truth and insight for overcoming a cycle of devastating relational woundings which sabotaged a series of "wins" for me vocationally. If you are a business person in need a practical breakthrough in a key area of your calling in the marketplace, I highly recommend you engage Destiny Manifest.
Rob Harvey, Executive Director Live58/ CEO Goodneighbor Foundation

*Our church, Lower Marsh Creek Presbyterian (PCUSA) Church, hosted a couples retreat with around 10 couples.  We invited Bruce and Jean Hammond to be our main speakers and we were not disappointed. Their impact on those who attended has been resonating weeks after the event.  Bruce and Jean effectively utilized the Bible, psychological principles and their own experience as a couple to help those who participated in the weekend move to the next level in their relationships.  I would strongly recommend Bruce and Jean to any church who is interested in having a couples retreat.  They will not disappoint.    
Rev. Troy Morgan, Senior Pastor Lower Marsh Creek Presbyterian Church Gettysburg, PA

*I decided to receive ministry with Bruce and Jean after talking with them about the unique way the Lord has prepared and equipped them over the years in their specific giftings. I sensed a purity about them and what they are carrying in the Spirit...truly God breathed. Our time together proved to be amazing. The love, peace and grace present during prayer gave a sense of rest to the healing process. Bruce and Jean have the ability to truly discern and see into the whole person by the Holy Spirt in a way that is profound and powerful. The ministry that Bruce and Jean carry is effective and amazingly fruitful. The quality, power and depth of what they give is reflective of their own lives before the Lord. I'm referring all my friends!
Karen Gajdos

* Destiny Manifest Ministries has made a profound impact on my life. The fruit in my life from this ministry was immediate, excellent and is still continuing. God uses Bruce & Jean to bring forth His deliverance, healing, wisdom, love and freedom so that your destiny in Christ Jesus can be allowed to manifest! They are anointed, yielded, pure vessels of Father God. I cannot think of anyone who would not benefit immensely from this unique and powerful ministry. If you have tried everything you can to bring Godly change into your life but it is not working…..I recommend Destiny Manifest Ministries…let them pray with you and watch God move the impossible!
Dara Bair

* Bruce and Jean are the safest people I have ever met. Because of this, God not only trusts them with His heart but also trusts them with the hearts of others. Through their willingness to go that far with me, into that sticky territory of unconditional love, I was able to receive divine healing from an incurable illness, see my hopes and dreams fulfilled, and, my relationships restored. I am no longer a magnet for disaster, my heart and mind have been relieved and restored, and I am the happiest I have ever been. Plus, I have the friendship of a lifetime. There is no way I could ever repay them. If you are considering them as facilitators for spiritual breakthrough in your life, do not hesitate. You will not be disappointed. God will show you His goodness more than you ever thought possible.
Zia Hooker

* For years I’d been involved in church ministry and prior to that, missions. Thankfully, I served with some genuine and truly loving believers which allowed for ongoing healing in my life. And I did experience amazing transformation. Yet God knew I needed something deeper as I was still affected in ways by religiosity and wasn’t yet fully free of some deep-seated fears and insecurities. Then, He amazingly moved me out of state, and for a season away from full-time ministry. In that new place He connected me with Bruce and Jean. It’s hard to describe their impact on my life, but through their ministry and friendship God has brought greater understanding, wholeness, freedom and breakthrough. They are incredibly gifted, insightful and anointed. And I’m especially grateful for how they open the way for the Healer Himself to come more fully into people’s lives. I’ve had significant times with the Lord following the sessions and encountered His love and presence in new ways, which has brought increasing wholeness and freedom, and ultimately deeper intimacy with Him. As a life and leadership coach I’m well aware of how vital wholeness and emotional health are for the fulfillment of our callings and destinies. Bruce and Jean have this understanding as few others I know and they have a unique anointing to help bring people forth into all God has created them to be.
Tracy Wood, Founder Life Gate Coaching

* I have been so blessed to know Bruce and Jean Hammond for about ten years and have literally praised and thanked God for them in many, many seasons of my life.

When we first met, I was in excruciating physical pain and my doctors could not figure out what it was and I had tried treatments and medications but nothing worked and honestly, I was absolutely tormented with fear that it wouldn't go away. That was when the Lord introduced me to the Hammonds and upon our first real meeting, they had pin-pointed the source of the emotional pain causing the physical problem and invited the Lord into the process of healing it and unraveling the pain. It was like words of knowledge/deliverance/healing/prophetic compassion all wrapped into one moment that really changed me. I finally knew God was in it with me, and since then He has healed it from the inside out.

That is just one example of many instance where Bruce and Jean took my hand and led me from the point of despair (often emotional and spiritual) to the turning point of hope and faith. It sounds simplistic, but I believe they are catalysts of healing, particularly for places of hopelessness and despair. They have an incredibly accurate prophetic insight into sources of foundational problems and the faith to pray for real solutions.

I have turned to them many times and they have been able to bring a kingdom faith, perspective, and power every time I've asked for help. I even called them from Kenya and they were able to discern spirits across a few continents. Bruce and Jean are wise, gifted, prophetic healers and leaders with extraordinary compassion and love for God's people. I'm so honored to call them friends.
Kim Masoni, YWAM Missionary to Kenya

*I highly recommend this ministry.  Bruce and Jean are filled with integrity and they have compassionate and loving hearts towards others.  You can trust them.  I do the....they have ministered to me on many occasions and each time they were loving and wonderful to me.

Bruce and Jean Hammond


Bruce grew up in Northfield, Minnesota. He is descended from several generations of missionaries. His mother was raised in South Africa as missionary to the Zulu tribe.

Bruce’s life was profoundly affected at an early age when he experienced crippling emotional problems culminating at the age of twelve. When a minister gave him insights and brought freedom through the power of Jesus Christ, his life was forever changed and his walk with God took deep root.

Most of Bruce’s years growing up in the small town were concentrated on athletics, particularly football. He mostly kept his walk with Christ to himself during these years. He attended St.Olaf College, located in his hometown of Northfield. Although the school is known for it’s academics, Bruce’s primary focus was success on the football field. However, after some disappointing years at the sport, he felt convicted by God that his personal success had become more important than a relationship with the Lord. It was at this time, after a change of heart, that his inward walk with Christ began manifesting on the outside. Bruce began professing openly the relationship with God that had been mostly private previously. During this time God began pouring His Spirit out on college students. Bruce spent the next ten years working with a local pastor, ministering to many of these college students. Following his graduation from college, he also began a career in aviation.

In 1995 Bruce moved to Bentonville, Arkansas accepting a pilot position for Walmart’s corporate flight department. Bruce found God taking him out of a busy life of ministering to college students to a rather isolated time of both refining and restoration, a process which Bruce identifies in many leaders. After four years in Arkansas, Bruce was joined by his wife, Jean, who he met through a series of remarkable events. Bruce and Jean experienced God taking them through healing and restoration processes which not only restored their own souls, but equipped them with the skills to set others free.

In 2007 Bruce and Jean moved to Nashville, Tennessee. Shortly after moving, they realized God had something else in store for them outside the field of aviation; a ministry. It was also at this time that Bruce began having profound encounters with God. He was so overwhelmed by the size, majesty, and beauty of God that he was left speechless (Daniel 10:8) for days on end. Although a Christian for most of his life, these encounters made him feel as though he was just beginning his walk with God. Bruce believes that these kind of experiences are going to become more frequent as God reveals Himself to a younger generation of believers who seek to know God “as he really is".


Jean grew up in Golden Valley, Minnesota; a suburb of Minneapolis. The youngest of five, much of her childhood she felt out of place and her alcoholic father left Jean in constant fear. She learned to withdraw and lost her sense of self-expression. It would be years later that Christ Jesus would set her free from the childhood traumas.

After college at both the University of Minnesota and St. Cloud State, Jean spent many years searching for the Truth. These were lonely years of searching. She tried everything: Buddhism, scientology, hinduism, astrology, spiritual healers, new age, ...all left her without any answers.

1995 was the beginning of a new life. Jean finally found the Truth, when she, for the first time, experienced a dramatic, sudden presence of God in her room, followed by the simple question, “ because you feel a certain way does that make it true?” At the time Jean was feeling like no one loved her. This simple question made her realize the way that she had interpreted relationships with people, and with God, were not accurate. Many of the answers were to be found in a new relationship with Jesus which began when she started attending meetings with Australian evangelist Doug Stanton. Revival broke out and Jean spent every evening for four years soaking in the power, presence, and truth of God. She was deeply touched and began a restoration process.

Another dramatic change in Jean’s life came when she found an occupation that was right for her. Another fruitless process had been her search for a fulfilling job that actually suited her. She began working in Job placement which would actually lead to her life calling-she found that she had a knack for assessing peoples’ abilities, desires, and personal makeup.

In 1999 Jean met her husband Bruce through a series of remarkable events. Their unique meeting and subsequent marriage has inspired many. It is truly an example of how God perfectly meets the needs of His children when they trust in His goodness.

Soon after marrying Bruce, Jean left her native Minnesota and moved to Bentonville, Arkansas, where she began an even deeper restorative process with Bruce. With God as their teacher, Jean and Bruce began to understand the restoration process. The nearly 8 years in Arkansas were to be the foundation of their ministry. The fruit of the process has been “truth in the inner most being” (Psalm 51:6), something Jean sees as priceless. She also became aware of how compassionate and understanding God is with broken people. Jean is convinced that God desires to bring harmony to the spirit, soul and body.

In 2007 Jean and Bruce moved to Nashville, Tennessee where they bring insight, restoration, and healing. She encourages people to co-operate with a compassionate God in His processes of restoration and fulfillment. Her vision is to see people experience a constant assurance of God’s love and truth within their soul, something many Christians do not believe is possible.
