OUR MISSION: Preparing women to be suitable helpers to their husbands both in the home and in the local church by providing biblical instruction and practical experience in an encouraging and mentoring environment

"At the SWI, real women in ministry will share from their experiences to encourage and train you to be a part of the next generation of ministry wives. We desire to have a Titus 2 ministry to you as God uses these seminary years to prepare you and your husband for His work.”
- Claudia Doran, SWI Director
