Seminary Wives in Ministry
S.W.I.M. (Seminary Wives in Ministry) exists to equip wives to be competent servants alongside their husbands in ministry.
There are three components to the SWIM program that assist us in fulfilling our mission:
- Triple S: SWIM Self-Study exists to provide the seminary wife with opportunities of spiritual growth through an independent reading program and guided by a faculty wife. For more information on Triple S, contact Andrea Wood.
- SWING: Seminary Wives In Nurturing Groups exists to assist seminary wives to grow in their walk with the Lord, develop relationships and help prepare them for ministry. For more information on SWING, contact Kathryn Sumner.
- Acts 18: Acts 18 exists to provide new seminary wives in transition with support and information about the Dallas community. For more information on Acts 18, contact Kristine Reiskytl.
In addition, we also sponsor special events such as semester opening programs, seminars and an annual wives retreat. Join us on Facebook to receive reminders about SWIM activities.
SWIM’s Spring Seminar
Soul Nourishment in the Midst of Ministry
Saturday, February 8
Check in at 8:30am | Event 9:00am - 12:30pm
Start the year off right, conditioning your heart and learning all the right moves to grow deeper in your walk (or run) with the Lord as you spend the morning “training” with the Seminary’s own Dr. Gail Seidel. See the results in your daily life and use the training you will receive at this seminar in your ministry.
This is a free event, and dress is casual (come in your favorite yoga pants if you like). Power breakfast and childcare are provided for those who register by Tuesday, February 4th. View event flyer.
SWING Groups Start January 20th
SWING stands for Seminary Wives In Nurturing Groups. Through these groups you will prepare for ministry and strengthen your relationship with the Lord. You will also have a great opportunity to be in community with other seminary wives.
This semester’s study is Kitchen Table Counseling by Muriel Cook and Shelly Cook Volkhardt. View SWING flyer.
SWING meet all over the DFW area at different times, and some groups even offer free childcare. Interested in being in a SWING group? Contact Kathryn Sumner at email@example.com to see what groups will work best for you.
Acts 18 Partner Program
A Special Partnership for Current and Incoming Wives
Acts 18 is a program designed for incoming wives as a way to partner with a current seminary wife who will connect with you, pray for you, and help you settle into life in Dallas and as a seminary wife. Your current wife will help guide you to local resources and help welcome you to Dallas.
Please sign up today if you are interested in partnering as a current or incoming wife.
SWIM is looking for volunteers who can serve on our board or who can give a small amount of their time every few months. It is a great opportunity to gain ministry experience and to serve others.
Contact Carolyn Hannah, SWIM adviser, at firstname.lastname@example.org to see what our current needs are.
