Who We Are

Joyce Swimm.
Joyce accepted Jesus as Savior and Lord on August 16, 1982. As she grew in faith, she worked in the local church as Sunday School teacher, Women’s Ministries leader and Associate Pastor. The Lord called Joyce to preach the gospel not long after her conversion and she preaches anywhere God opens the door. Her message is a cry to get back to the power of the Holy Ghost and the blood of Jesus that washes away sins.

Garth Swimm.
Garth accepted Jesus into his heart as a child but through his teenage years he struggled in his faith and finally rededicated his life to Christ as an adult. Garth flows in revelation of the Word of God as he teaches and preaches. He plays the guitar and sings and has been called a “Psalmist” of the Lord. The anointing of the Holy Ghost flows sweetly and brings light to the darkness to those he ministers to.

Together Garth and Joyce make up Firestorm Ministries. A ministry that believes the fire of God will burn away all sin and move out every obstacle as a storm clears the air. They are ordained under Cross Country World Missions, a ministry that has touched over 45 nations of the world with the gospel. Lead by Reverend Ann Baines, this ministry plants churches and orphanages overseas and sends teams on short term missions trips. Garth and Joyce minister to the lost, whether broken or proud. God has empowered them to reach souls in every realm. To Him be all the glory!

What We Do:

We gather together to express that love to each other and those who cross our paths in our daily lives.

We endeavor to preach and teach the good news of the gospel with signs following.

We focus not only on our local body, but also on those outside of the four walls of our church. Our goal is to grow people into the image of Christ for his glory!
