What Can We Do For You

S.W.I.M.International exists to support women who are in ministry, whether in church leadership or outside the local church. In every ministry, there is a need for genuine encouragement and prayer support.

S.W.I.M. came into being as a support group of women in ministry who wanted prayer intercessors encircling them that they might receive the clear leading of the Holy Spirit. Women in ministry, whimsically called “Swimmers,” and prayer-intercessors known, as “Life Savers,” have successfully enhanced women’s callings in many exciting ways.

We cordially invite you to take time to explore this website and consider if and when we can assist you.

“…See that you fulfill the ministry that you have received in the Lord.” Col. 4:17 (ESV)


One Mission. One Purpose.

Serving in a church, para-church, or individual ministry can often be a challenging and isolating experience. In response, SWIM International was created to primarily bring women in ministry into a relationship with a support group where they may be encouraged and spiritually strengthened.

In this Christian community, they are empowered for service in the 21st Century with its unique challenges confronting women leaders. Our Mission and Purpose Statements are the core objectives of SWIM International’s “calling” to prayerfully and relationally support women in Christian ministry in unique and effective ways.
