Michael Janetis, singer, songwriter and worship leader, carries the heart of a pastor for the broken and hurting and is the co-founder and lead pastor of the now-forming Oceans Church in Miramar Beach along with his wife, Jaime. She has always had a passion to sing and lead people into a relationship with Jesus, and for the last 20 years the couple has served as worship pastors and in pastoral care.

The couple is in the process of furthering the great commission of Jesus and bringing the culture of God's Kingdom to Destin, according to the church website.

The first Interest Party for the church will begin at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 4, at 2 Birds Cafe, 80 Seascape Drive in Miramar Beach. This Interest Party will be open for all to come and hear about the vision of Oceans Church for Destin.

Participate in a fun, laidback evening to connect socially over some refreshments, have a brief time of worship and then hear about the vision and culture of Oceans Church.

"We are so very thankful to the owners of 2 Birds for giving us this opportunity to use their space for the evening," Michael told The Log.

"We believe that Oceans Church will be a multi-cultural, multi-generational church, a church that looks and sounds like heaven. We are so excited for what God has in store for this beautiful city of Destin and we are so thankful to be a part of it."
