Singing Women of Texas

Houston—Southeast Chapter

Singing Women of Texas is a unique women’s choir that connects the beauty of choral worship and a sisterhood of ministry, while serving communities across the state.  SWOT is a ministry of Texas Baptists, with eight chapters singing around the state. Our choirs weave traditional, contemporary and gospel pieces into a tapestry of worship that points people to Christ.

The Southeast Chapter is directed by Bari Barner Brumfield. Our members travel up to a hundred miles across the Greater Houston Area to sing and share the love of Jesus in our surrounding communities. SWOT ministers at churches, missions, prisons and retirement homes. Wherever the Lord leads us, we follow.

A Texas Baptists Ministry

Singing Women of Texas has been sponsored by Texas Baptists since 1994 and we have been ministering to communities across Texas for over 25 years. There are eight chapters of SWOT that sing around their own region, and occasionally combine with other chapters for concerts around the state—and even across the U.S.

In 2019, SWOT celebrated their 25th anniversary at UMHB in a combined concert that was professionally recorded. It is now available for purchase!
