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.
  • Bridges: Bridges (formerly Acts 18) exists to provide new seminary wives in transition with support and information about the Dallas community. For more information, contact

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.

Bridges Program (formerly Acts 18)

A Special Partnership for Current and Incoming Wives

Bridges 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.
