Meet Gabriel Swaggart
Gabriel Swaggart is an associate pastor of Family Worship Center, the home church and headquarters of Jimmy Swaggart Ministries (JSM). In addition to his studies at World Evangelism Bible College & Seminary, Pastor Gabe is a lifelong student of his father, Rev. Donnie Swaggart, and his grandfather, Rev. Jimmy Swaggart.
Pastor Gabe has been in full-time ministry since 2002. His responsibilities span the entire scope of operations at JSM from administrations to the inner workings of the ministry-owned SonLife Broadcasting Network (SBN), which airs 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to a potential audience of 280 million viewers.
Pastor Gabe’s television ministry includes Generation of the Cross, a one-hour program designed to meet the everyday challenges that Christians face with Bible-based answers. He also hosts Living Waters, which highlights the music of Jimmy Swaggart and other vocalists and musicians associated with the ministry.
Family Worship Center is a worldwide platform where Pastor Gabe ministers alongside his father and grandfather during regular church services and during two annual camp meetings—all broadcast live over SBN.
For the past 12 years, Pastor Gabe has also served as the youth pastor of Crossfire Youth Ministries. Each summer, Pastor Gabe and his wife, Jill, host Crossfire’s annual International Youth Conference, which draws thousands of young people to the five-day event and is also shown live on SBN.
Pastor Gabe and Jill live in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, with their three daughters: Samantha, Abby, and Caroline
