Later the Swifts (along with their five children: Joshua, Jacob, Jemmilie, Judson, and J.Christopher) took an assignment in Lebanon teaching Bible at the Beirut Baptist School in 2007. Eventually they moved to Southern Lebanon heading up leadership development and theological training with a church plant in Tyre. Jonathan also undertook a Master of Sacred Theology in Islamic Philosophy at the Near East School of Theology in Beirut at the time (STM, 2013). Now he is leading the team establishing Christ Community Church in Dearborn.
