Margie Swenson

Margie was raised in a family where she learned to love Jesus by watching her parents’ faithful lives of discipleship and service. She began her intentional life of faith by praying with her mother sometime before she was four. When she was eight, Margie heard a woman talk about serving God in Thailand and that very day she told her parents that she was going to be a overseas worker. Throughout her growing up years that call on her life influenced all of her major decisions.

Along with her husband Baxter, Margie served for 32 years in South America, first in Medellín, Colombia and later for 18 years in Quito, Ecuador. Since 2007 Margie and Baxter have been serving as the Co-directors of Mi. Personnel for the Evangelical Covenant Church with responsibility for 120+ overseas workers and their children serving in 20 countries internationally. The Swensons’ three sons, three daughters-in-law and one adorable granddaughter are serving in overseas work and pastoral ministry in Ecuador, Spain and Texas.
