Fred and Nicky Swart are members of Midpoint Church, with a passion for the nations. Fred is a chartered accountant and marketplace leader, while Nicky has a background in tertiary education. They founded Ignite Ministries in 2013 as a vehicle for missions, yet they strongly believe in being fully involved, committed and accountable to their local church and leadership.
The vision of Ignite Ministries is to see sons and daughters reunited with the Father, to see people of every nation and race freed from bondage and released into their own divine calling, to glorify Jesus and to trust the Holy Spirit to work powerfully in and through them.
In order to fulfil this vision, Fred and Nicky network with missionaries, churches and other established ministries in Asia and the Pacific. Nicky regularly visits missionaries and churches in Cambodia, the Philippines and Pacific nations such as Vanuatu and Fiji, where she teaches in Bible schools, preaches, supports and encourages locals pastors and leaders. Fred’s role is supportive and he joins Nicky on mission trips as often as his work commitments allow.
Fred and Nicky have a dream to see Ignite Ministries function as a vehicle for members of the body of Christ to experience short term mission trips, whether they want to serve in practical ways or experience first-hand the miraculous way God heals and delivers as they minister and teach.
