Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

66% of students are walking away from their faith upon entering college. By providing more relevant and practical content for students, we believe they will have a better understanding of a relationship with Christ. S.W.A.T. will also create a captivating environment for students to engage in corporate worship and teaching. S.W.A.T. has a 29 year history of building relationships with middle and high school students and developing college leaders. We have seen students and college leaders grow in their faith and understanding of their purpose and relationship with God as a direct result with their involvement with S.W.A.T.

Disciple Now

Disciple Now is a weekend event for middle and high school students to grow in their relationship with Christ. A local church will host the event and we will bring our trained leaders, speaker, worship, curriculum, t-shirts, etc. to spend a weekend with students building relationships and modeling a daily relationship with Christ. The goal is for each student to walk away beginning a relationship with God or strengthening it.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1.) SWAT Ministries is increasing by 5 Disciple Now Weekends and 12 churches in the Southeast Region and 3 Disciple Now Weekends and 5 churches in Texas in 2022.\n 2.) Disciple Next is launching in August of 2021 to train church small group leaders, starting with 2 events in 2021, 5 in 2022 and 10 in 2023.

SWAT Ministries trains and develops leaders to role model a relationship with Christ to a younger generation to become spiritual leaders in their communities. We execute this strategy through our Disciple Now weekends, Disciple Next events, Cultivate and our intern program.
