The best kept secret in music



Lanny Swaim is one of the fresh, new prophetic voices sovereignly raised up to speak the word of the Lord to another generation. You might call him one of the “new circuit riders” assigned to bring the glory of the Lord to a generation that has never been touched by this exceptional grace of God. Should time and circumstances permit, I predict that God will use Lanny Swaim in some glorious and strategic outpourings of his Spirit in the days ahead.

Lanny Swaim is a friend of mine. I marvel at the boldness with which he has pursued the movement of the Holy Spirit within the Church. I also marvel at the movement of the Sprit within the Church as a result. Lanny is being used by God in a remarkable way at a very special time for the advancement of the Kingdom of God. My prayers and support go with him.

The dedication, the perseverance and the quality anointing in Lanny’s ministry has filled my heart with joy as we have ministered together in the United States, England and Portugal. I value him as a friend, a minister and a first class singer/songwriter/musician. Thank you, my dear associate, a great man of God, tirelessly doing great things for Jesus and his Kingdom.

Lanny Swaim’s music will take you beyond entertainment and into the presence of God. You will find yourself in worship because Lanny is worshipping. There is an anointing on his life. So, open your heart and let God break a few yokes while he plays and sings. You will be glad you did.

I have known Lanny Swaim for many years. He has a passion to serve God and to lead people into God’s presence with praise and worship. Lanny is faithful to his commitments, continually giving of himself and sacrificing much to bless others. It is an honor to call him friend.

Ronald Smith – Pastor: Love of Christ Church – Bolivia, NC
Lanny Swaim, the Holy Spirit rages within your soul! The five fold anointings that are on Lanny and the additional office of the psalmist have blessed me and my ministry more that I know how to explain. His covenant to teach the uncompromised Gospel of Jesus, at all cost, is an encouragement to those of us called to similar missions. I am blessed and honored to call him my brother.

Biographical Sketch

As a child Lanny received formal piano and organ training in church and classical music. In church he was often playing for the choir and the men's chorus, as well as performing solos, singing and accompanying himself on piano. At the age of eleven he performed "The Norwegian Concerto" for a school assembly. During high school he formed a rock band and played school dances, parties, concerts and club dates.

At the age of nineteen, Lanny accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior and began singing and playing with a contemporary Christian band. The band traveled Virginia and the Carolinas, performing in churches, Christian coffeehouses, and various other concerts. They were featured on a CBN television special, performed live on a 700 Club telethon and filmed a television special with Art Linkletter and Nicky Cruz in the coliseum at NC State University before an audience of six thousand people.

In the spring of 2000 at a Full Gospel Business Men’s Advance at Fort Caswell, NC, God spoke to Lanny and said, “I am now anointing you to lead praise and worship.” Since that time he has led praise and worship at Full Gospel Business Men’s meetings and functions. He has served as praise and worship leader in church settings and with various ministries. As a teacher, prophet, psalmist and praise and worship leader, Lanny is frequently invited to minister at churches, conferences, etc. His ministry is most effective when he conducts the entire service. He has traveled extensively throughout the southeastern United States, as well as other areas of the country and in other nations.


Acts 3:19 speaks of “Times of refreshing that come from the presence of the Lord.” Perhaps this is the best description of a service where Lanny is ministering.

Lanny’s anointing as a praise and worship leader takes congregations into the presence of God
where signs, wonders, miracles and the gifts of the Holy Spirit manifest. People leave not only refreshed but also encouraged, strengthened and better equipped for success in life and ministry.

As a revivalist, Lanny is a prophetic voice to this generation, declaring the greatest move of God that the United States and the world has ever known. Jesus is building his glorious Church, without spot, wrinkle or any such thing, holy and without blemish (Ephesians 5:27). He is building it on the foundation of apostles and prophets (Ephesians 2:20). He is establishing the five fold ministry to establish, equip and perfect saints for the work of the ministry and the building up of the Body of Christ until we all come into the unity of the faith and the fullness of the Anointed One, Jesus (Ephesians 4:11-13).

As a teacher, Lanny passes on his passion for the revealed, uncompromised Word of God. His desire is to see believers grow to maturity, bringing the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.

Lanny is founder of Glory Ministries International (GMI). GMI sponsors Glory Campaigns and Conventions as well as other facets of Lanny’s ministry.
