Our staff leads and serves with love.
David and Miriam Swaggerty

Senior Pastor David Swaggerty and his wife Miriam have been born again and serving the Lord for over 42 years. They have two married daughters and three grandchildren. Preaching since early 1974, Pastor Swaggerty was first licensed with the Church Of God in Cleveland, TN in December 1977 and ordained in June 1983. He has been the Senior Pastor of the same congregation since that time.

Pastor Swaggerty knows that the Lord has given him a mandate to the people and city of Whitehall and that is why God allowed them to acquire their present building at such a miraculous price. Read more about their story here.

When you visit us, please take the time to say hi to Pastor David and Miriam.
They’d be honored to meet you and personally welcome you to CharismaLife Ministries.
