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 Charity Anderson or fill out the interest form.
  • 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 Jennifer Bugos or sign up for a group.
  • 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 Anda Miller.

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.

Did you ever picture yourself here, as a wife of a seminary student?

The trail that God has for each one of us can be different, unexpected, and at times a little bumpy. Come hear from others who are walking alongside you or who may be a little ahead on the ministry trail who will be sharing their encouraging stories. We will also be unveiling all that SWIM has for you to navigate the upcoming school year.

This is a free event; lunch and childcare (for birth to 5 years) are provided for those who RSVP by September 1st. Please call 214.841.3512 or email swim@dts.edu if you have any questions.

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.
