The objectives of a Festival:
Evoke spiritual awakening in the community
Foster renewal and unity in the Body of Christ
Equip churches to accomplish evangelism and discipleship
SWEA partners with a wide variety of denominations in support of the Festivals and is represented by various denominations on the staff, ministry team, and the Board of Directors.
Operational funds for a Festival are raised and expended locally. The local Festival Finance Committee has control over the expenditure of funds. Full-time members of the Steve Wingfield Evangelistic Association do not receive a salary from the Festival. After the Festival, all financial records are professionally audited or reviewed and the results published in a local newspaper. When all bills have been paid, any remaining funds will be sent to the Steve Wingfield Evangelistic Association. These funds will be used to fund Festival ministry in both the United States and abroad.
