In The Loop: Ministry Renewal Retreat

Thursday, July 19, 2012

On August 12, 2012, we will be celebrating our 1-year Anniversary of the launch of S.W.A.P. Ministries! For the first 2 weeks of August we will be on a Ministry Renewal Retreat! In preparation for a new season, your women’s ministry leaders, Shanita Jones and Melanie Johnson, will engage in a few weeks of prayer for the direction God wants to take this ministry; fasting to rid ourselves of the weights that come with running a ministry; a period of intentional renewal, personal revitalization, and deep study to recharge our minds as we develop more lessons aimed at: strengthening each other as sisters, living intentionally in our God-given purposes, and faithfully deepening our relationships with the Lord!

As we follow the biblical model of Jesus who frequently retreated to a quiet place to meditate, pray, and be renewed (Matthew 14:23, Mark 1:35, Luke 5:16, John 6:15), and God giving his weary children refreshment (Psalm 68:9), we want to encourage you to rejuvenate your spirits on our blog by reading through some of our Archives, full of Mini Devotional Series, Midweek Push lessons, and Mountain Moving Mondays! Though we love our daily interaction with our SWAPs, we will not update our Facebook page for those 2 weeks, nor send out blog posts. Although, we may be unavailable, we trust that God has given us tools that allow you to encourage one another as we renew our minds and souls; plus we would absolutely love to come back and see that you all have been interacting, encouraging, and praying for one another on our wall!

When we return, look forward to several new entities of S.W.A.P. Ministries! We will begin Testimony Tuesdays, Freedom Fridays, and Service Saturdays! This will add to our already established Mountain Moving Mondays and Midweek Pushes. God hasn’t given us a direction on Thursday yet, but we trust that it’s coming! ☺ Stay tuned as we release more about what these new additions will entail.

We’re excited and we’re thankful for the year that you have been with us! We look forward to more opportunities to swap with you!


The purpose of Sisters With A Purpose Ministries is to encourage women to live, not just exist, and learn how to be bold about sharing the gospel of Christ to others.


Bible based teaching


  • Spiritual - Through this ministry, women will be drawn closer to God. Women who do not know Jesus will be connected to Him through study and baptism into the body of Christ. Women, who already have a relationship with God, will daily renew their lives and be living sacrifices. 
  • Service - Through this ministry women will see the importance of giving back, have the desire to serve others, and through their specific callings share God's purpose with others in their communities and church. 
  • Social - Through this ministry women will be encouraged to connect with other women via the blog, social media page, or meetup groups to pray, network, discuss real issues that affect the Christian woman, and commune with one another. We strive to become a community of women that encourage other women to live their lives with purpose.
