Pastors O.J. & DeLesa Swanigan
O.J. and DeLesa Swanigan serve as the Senior Pastors of The Light Christian Church. They have been married for 29 years and have two kingdom impacting sons, Orintheo and Olan; an anointed daughter-in-love, Narkesia; and two beautiful grandchildren, Onna and Omari.
As anointed, visionary, and strategic leaders, Pastors O.J. and DeLesa are truly a blessing to the body of Christ. They have the incredible ability to share the Word of God with boldness, power, and simplicity. As such, God has commissioned the Swanigans to teach, challenge, and exhort the body of Christ to wholeheartedly walk in their divine purpose and fulfill the destiny God has assigned to their lives. The Swanigans understand that as individuals commit to walking in obedience to what God has called them to do, that the manifested word and blessings of God become evident in their lives and inspires others to follow. Therefore, the Swanigans purpose to teach practical, life transforming, biblical principles designed to "Raise up a generation to walk in their purpose and fulfill their destiny."
Towards that end, Pastor Swanigan leads the Men of Divine Destiny (M.O.D.D.) Ministry in his local church. Through this ministry, men are learning how to take their rightful places in their homes and communities, and be the visionaries and leaders God has called them to be. He also teaches biblical leadership principles to entrepreneurs and business owners. An Apostolic anointing has been declared over Pastor Swanigan's life and, as such, he serves as a mentor and spiritual advisor to numerous pastors, ministers, leaders, and men.
DeLesa has a tremendous burden and passion to minister to the needs of women. As such, she leads the "Women of the Word" (W.O.W.) Women's Ministry and the "God's Awesome Promises" (GAP) Ministry in her local church. Through these ministries, lives are being saved, healed, delivered, and set free. Additionally, women and young ladies are learning how to develop their spiritual gifts and how to boldly discharge the mandate upon their lives.
Pastor O.J. holds a Bachelor's Degree in Theology from the Sacramento Theological Seminary where he graduated Salutatorian. DeLesa holds a Bachelor's Degree in Organizational Behavior and Leadership from the University of San Francisco where she graduated with top honors. They both frequently minister locally and nationally at churches, conferences, and other events.
Most of all, Pastors O.J.
and DeLesa are anointed, Spirit-filled men and women of God who walk in their purpose
and are committed to fulfilling their destiny.
