Paula White Cain is now the oversight pastor at City of Destiny and her son, Brad Knight, is the senior pastor along with his wife, Rachel. The church, New Destiny Christian Center, is now legally known as City of Destiny.

"So today, I am officially installing Pastor Brad and Pastor Rachel as the senior pastors of over City of Destiny," Cain says. "Everybody stand up on your feet, because this is God's plan. I am moving to what I call oversight pastor, but let me explain that. That is apostolic, but I just haven't embraced the title, though. ... But as apostolic overseer of City of Destiny, today officially, it's all been done legally, officially, we are City of Destiny. Welcome to your new beginning."

Cain says she received a prophetic word in 2005 about the pastoral transition that didn't make sense until 2019.

"The Lord spoke to me very clearly and said, 'If you miss this moment, you will delay things. Do not miss this moment,'" Cain says.

Cain also spoke openly about the transition over the weekend at the Unleashed conference.

"I'm just messed up, it's so powerful and profound," Cain told the conference after Jentezen Franklin finished speaking. "I told my son (Brad Knight) will be the pastor as of this Sunday (May 5), because God spoke to me, so y'all don't wanna miss Sunday because City of Destiny is being launched, come on. And God is moving. I'm the oversight pastor."

The church's website still lists Cain as the senior pastor, though a Facebook post announces Brad Knight as the pastor.

Cain says she is believing for the church to have 3,000 church plants. She will continue with Paula White Ministries. Cain will preach if her son asks.

"Minister Jon (Cain) and I are not going anywhere, but we submit ourselves to Pastor Brad for City of Destiny," Cain says.

Knight closed his first official service as senior pastor discussing prophetic words.
