A Brief Biography of Donnie Swaggart
Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature (Mark 16:15)
Donnie is also Johnny's pastor, as Donnie is Co-Pastor of Family Worship Center where Johnny and his wife Melissa are members.
Donnie Swaggart is the only son of Evangelist Jimmy and Frances Swaggart. While Donnie carries the same evangelistic zeal and mantle that his father carries, he has a dynamic and hard-hitting preaching style that is all his own. Donnie Swaggart functions under the title of Pastor/ Evangelist, and not only travels the world in evangelistic ministry, but also serves as co-pastor of Family Worship Center Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Donnie Swaggart is called by God to bring the message of Pentecost to those bound by cold, formal, lifeless religion, and to reintroduce the Pentecostal fire and the Pentecostal way of life to those who have never gone beyond the initial baptism experience. He is a regular speaker at the twice annual Jimmy Swaggart Campmeetings. Without fail, Donnie delivers a stirring message on the Holy Spirit on the Saturday night Campmeeting service. This Saturday evening message is always a deeply anticipated part of the Campmeeting and has come to be affectionately termed “Holy Spirit Night” to ministry insiders.
Donnie and his wife Debbie make their home in Baton Rouge Louisiana, but his ministry travels have taken him across the United States, South Africa, Australia, Scotland, England, Sweden, Norway, Brazil, Mexico, and Papua New Guinea, Nigeria, France, India, Canada, Belgium, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Columbia, Costa Rica and Denmark. He has been involved in full time ministry work for over 25 yrs and continues to be passionate about the tremendous call God has placed on his life.
Donnie and Debbie Swaggart are the very proud parents of three children and four grandchildren. They have two sons, Gabriel Swaggart and Mathew Swaggart and a daughter Jennifer. Gabriel Swaggart and his lovely wife Jill are an integral part of Jimmy Swaggart Ministries and head Crossfire Youth Ministry, a part of Family Worship Center. They have two adorable daughters, Samantha-Gabrielle and Abby-Jill. Mathew Swaggart is also an active and integral part of the ministry. He is a television graphics artist and a very gifted photographer. He and his beautiful wife Joanna have a son, Ryder-Euin-Presley and a daughter Lola-Josephine-Rose. Donnie Swaggart’s daughter Jennifer is married and makes her home in Atlanta Georgia. She is a passionate teacher and recently graduated with her masters in Education.
Last but not least, one would be remiss if they did not mention Donnie’s Cajun Bulldog Boudreaux (pictured right) who is every bit an adorable and vital part of his family.
