The winds are your messengers - Psalm 104:4



Our benevolence ministry is in place to meet the immediate physical needs of our local community and support other local ministries. We regularly collect various items according to the needs of these ministries. In emergency situations, we provide financial assistance. If we are unable to help directly, we maintain a list of local organizations equipped to help. Click here for a directory of organizations that we support.



Through education, fellowship, and good works, the youth ministry of the Southwinds Church of Christ strives to know God, connect to each other, serve others, and grow in the image of Jesus Christ. We host several Bible studies, a variety of fun events, service projects, mission trips, and many more activities throughout the year. The Southwinds Youth Group provides a safe environment for students in middle and high school to express themselves, utilize their talents, and get to know an incredible group of young men and women.

Life Groups

Life Groups are small groups of Christians meeting together in the Fort Wayne area in order to form bonds and relationships that will help us grow and be strengthened in Christ. Life Groups share meals, talk about the scriptures, pray for one another, and generally share life in Christ together. Discussions revolve around the previous Sunday’s sermon. If you would like to be involved in a Life Group, please contact the church office at (260) 434-1656 or by sending an e-mail to office@southwindschurch.org.



The missions ministry exists as a way for members of Southwinds to fulfill the church’s calling to spread the word of Christ. This is fulfilled through both domestic and international mission work. We sponsor several opportunities for this work and are constantly seeking those willing to get involved with our missions ministry through financial support, prayer, or by volunteering to be part of a missions team.

At Southwinds, we care about children and do everything we can to support them as they grow in to men and women of God. Every Sunday at 9:15am, we offer classes for children of all ages. During our 10:15am worship service, children are dismissed to a program designed to educate, entertain, and empower through songs, stories, and crafts. Throughout the years, we host events like “Vacation Bible School” and “Trunk or Treat” that are dedicated to children and involve the entire Southwinds family. If you’d like to know more, please contact us using the form below.



The men’s ministry at Southwinds develops relationships between men as we seek to glorify God, grow stronger spiritually, and serve others. We accomplish this through a variety of activities that bring men together with each other and their families. For upcoming events, check out the Southwinds calendar.



Our purpose is to organize and serve in the most efficient way. Our goal is to build strong, Christ-centered relationships with each other and reach out to those outside our fellowship in Christian love, as we strive to be better servants, teachers, wives, mothers, sisters, and friends. Check out the Southwinds calendar for upcoming women’s ministry events.

Local Impact

Southwinds’ Local Impact ministry attempts to answer an important question: “If the Southwinds Church of Christ ceased to exist, what impact would be made on the local community?” The Local Impact ministry organizes several service projects throughout the year in the Fort Wayne area. We may be helping a family move, volunteering at a local food bank, or raking leaves. As directed in Galatians 5:13, we live in “freedom to serve one another in love.” (NLT) Check the Southwinds calendar for upcoming Local Impact activities. Contact us if someone you know is in need of assistance!
