In 1993 Spirit Wind Church began modestly in Phil and Shirley Spencer's hearts and home. Ordained and trained, through Christian International they have a great vision emblazoned upon their hearts and through their spirits by the impartation and persuasion of the Holy Spirit.
God showed them that there was a great need in the area of equipping the saints. A real need in the nuts and bolts area (or if you prefer the laying on of hands) within the body of Christ. How could God's people fulfill the great commission unless they were initially trained and then sent out to do so? The body of Christ at large suffers in this area and they do not seem to be meeting the task at hand and so with the boldness of the Spirit and the love of our Father they set out to do as He had bid. From their living room to their archery range and two other buildings in town they nurtured and taught and sent out others as the ministry grew. Now housed in a lovely facility at 1435 South Armstrong in Kokomo, Indiana they have developed seven schools and teach them in house quarterly.
With God's anointing as Bishop and Apostle they were sent out to the nations as well. They have ministered, and taught schools from Russia, Germany, and Romania, to Jamaica, Barbados, and Mexico as well as many different States here at home.
In addition to Spirit Wind the home church they also provide apostolic oversight to Remnant Covenant Assembly in Mandelville, Jamaica, Harken-flo Ministries a church in Ft. Wayne, Indiana as well as New Jerusalem Full Gospel in Anderson, Indiana. For futher information on these ministries click on SWC Network
Since the year 2000 Phil and Shirley have hosted several times on the Indianapolis channel of TBN television network. Between 2001 and 2002 they also hosted their own program on WHMB Channel 40, which is one of Lester Summerall's LeSEA network stations.
God has also commissioned them to send out teams as the ministry grows, and saints are now being taught and trained to accomplish that part of the vision of Spirit Wind Ministries.
Ever hearing and ever speaking the word, walking in the Spirit and teaching the nations to do the same: Bishop Phil and Apostle Shirley Spencer have a vision to empower the saints. Are you being empowered and made ready for the end time push of God? If you wish to have them bring schools and/or ministry teams to your area please feel free to contact the office at :

NOTES FRIDAY SERVICES are being suspended for awhile due to gasoline prices.
If you will be traveling for a considerable distance please feel free to call the church to confirm meetings, especially around holidays or during inclement weather.
FRIDAY NIGHT ALIVE We call Friday evenings "ALIVE" for one simple reason: we believe God for miracles and He brings them forth. Friday is an unusual time for a church service, and Friday services are unusual meetings. All of the participants rely on the Holy Spirit to guide the service. Music, message, and ministry are times of learning to flow with what God wants to do. These are times of prophesy, healing and deliverance.
Since Friday evenings do not conflict with most other services, many are free to visit, and people have traveled over 100 miles to receive ministry. God never fails to be present and show forth His power. He brings forth revelation of His word and speaks into the lives of those who have a desire to step out in faith. When the various schools are in session, Fridays are exceptionally exciting as God increases the flow of His Spirit and ministers to and through many students in a new way.
Weekly: Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. - Warfare Prayer Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. - Bible Study
Sunday at 9:00 a.m. - Sunday School Sunday at 10:00 a.m. - Morning Worship Service

Hello Saints in the body of Christ, got a word from God, well when was the last time your Pastor asked you to preach or share from the pulpit? Here at SWC the saints are invited to share what God is speaking to them, because Pastors are not the only ones anointed to minister the word? The Holy Spirit imparts to all as he wills.

Prophecy Given by: Bishop Phil Spencer on October 7, 2005 at Spirit Wind Church
For the Lord says, "Even this hour, I have stretched forth the arm of chastening upon My People. Even in this hour, things are going to begin to be made right."
The Lord says, "I’ve stretched forth the arm of chastening because I love you. Because I have given unto you. Because I have tolerated things from you that I wouldn’t have tolerated from others. But because I love you, I’ve tolerated inconsistencies, inadequacies, devotion that was not true, obedience that was not correct."
And the Lord says, "In this hour, I shall begin to correct. In this hour, I shall begin to cause My Church to come together. In this hour, I shall cause My Body to sraighten up and to get things correct, to see the heart of God within the confines of My Body"
For the Lord says, "This is the time to seek… to seek… to reach forth and cry, as a hungry child might, that you do not have all the answers."
The Lord says, "Sons and Daughters, know that you have precious few of the answers of the Kingdom.,"
The Lord says, "Know that in this hour, I am ready to pour out My Spirit in a way, a new way, a way that will cause an understanding in My Kingdom."
For the Lord says, "Today I am knitting and pushing and pulling, and I’m tearing out that which has caused My Church to go astray. I’m calling it asunder. I’m sending forth a repair, a chastening that will cause a coming together of My Church."
And the Lord says, "In this hour you’re going to see through new eyes. You’re going to hear through new ears."
And the Lord says, "My Spirit is going to rain over you even as I poured out into it."
The Lord says, "Know that there’s a new day a coming."
And the Lord says, "I am cutting out, I am cutting out disobedience. I’m sending it… setting it aside."
"I am plowing a new path, turning over hardened ground."
"For indeed the ground over the centuries has gotten harder and harder and harder. In this hour I shall cause it to be soft. I shall make it fertile again. And the valleys shall flow with water. And milk and honey shall come forth from it." Saith the Lord. "You look at it and you say ‘How can this be, Lord?’ How can this be? Sin abounds. Disobedience abounds,’"
And the Lord says, "I am sovereign over all things. I am the Creator of all things. I’ve caused all things to come into existence."
And the Lord says, "Now I stretch out and bring a hand of correction over My People and over this land."
For the Lord says, "I am building a bastion. I am building a bastion of sanctuary in these last days. I have nowhere to build it but in this place, in this land which I have set aside for Myself 200 years ago. I sanctified it unto Myself. I sent people to occupy it in and of Myself and to give Me glory, but it has been perverted."
And the Lord says, "So today, I stretch forth the hand of chastening. I stretch forth the hand of chastening because I love you. Because I love you, because I care I’ll bring correction upon this land."
And the Lord says, "Know that even the burdens that are there in you are My work. You can’t throw then away. You can’t get rid of them. I have placed upon you burden for the things of God, for the things of Me. I place upon you a burden for this land. I place upon you a burden which is not going to go away because see, you know Me. You know the truth."
And the Lord says, "I am correcting. I am bringing a realignment."
And the Lord says, "They will not be able to deny this one. For this is the hour the hand of chastening has indeed been stretched forth upon this land."
PROPHECY FROM BISHOP SEPT. 1, 2005
God is showing us things and is beginning to run at a quicker pace. Look for the Lord to begin to run at a flat pace no more walking.
I believe God is ready to lead the body of Christ into the last days and he is on a run that will not slow again, but continue on, then increase at regular intervals.
There will be those left behind.
There will be those that run as they see the need of new revelation and they will run and run with God, …….. and there will be those left and they will believe they have achieved what they were sent to do but in reality they are left behind.
The Lord says we have just seen the beginnings of the destruction that will come forth upon the earth. I will bring my people to their knees.
The Lord says you will not see the healing of the land anymore, as the grounds have been polluted. My people have fallen away and polluted my land.
They have placed my word and revelation into books and tapes and like moneychangers they sell their ideas from me, and the Lord says freely you have received freely give. (The Lord showed me books, tapes, and things to sell, in order that his ministers could make money.)
I have a remnant, I have a remnant, I have a remnant, and they love, serve, and are willing to die for me, because they serve me I will give them direction, revelation, I shall preserve them. I shall make a place for them.
In this hour many shall begin to look for me. Many shall throw down their sins and the nature that has been upon them. In this hour LAST DECISIONS are going to be made. Many will perish and many will make last judgements. I say choose me saith the Lord.
These are days of increased burden. Behold I send messengers. I send them here and there. Their lights will be lit and burn from within them …… hear them. I am restoring the church and the message saith God.
Woe, woe, woe unto the churches that will not hear my Apostles and Prophets, for I have carefully placed them and have placed revelation upon them. They carry my revelation, my heart, and my provision. They carry my understanding, and my love. They cannot be torn and divided by my people but are united through the blood of Christ.
Hear my messengers. It is the hour I will shake foundations. I will pour out newness in wrath, wrath that you have never seen before. I will tear down strongholds of men and restore the church.
Receive my messengers, receive my messengers, receive my messengers.
