Southwest Indian Ministries

Southwest Indian Ministries, otherwise known as S.W.I.M., is the Church of God regional office that services the Churches of God in the heart of Indian country.  It is headquartered at beautiful Manuelito, New Mexico.  Tom Tapley serves as the Administrative Bishop of this region of churches that extend into several states.  S.W.I.M. has its own set of unique challenges.  It exists in one of the most poverty stricken areas of the country yet has a rich heritage with many churches that experience a move of God like no other.  Because of the high unemployment and low wages that are common among the scattered reservations, S.W.I.M. depends heavily upon the outreach and missions projects from churches outside of the region.  Many of the churches rest among some the ripest spiritual mission fields found anywhere.  Without a doubt, God is doing a great work at S.W.I.M.
