Lisa Schwarz: founder and CEO of Crazy8 Ministries, established in March, 2011
Lisa first recognized the love of her Savior at the age of 18. She was very drawn to His Word and was blessed with a mentor who challenged her both spiritually and scripturally.
Her love for the Word and passion to see people come to a deep and full healing in every aspect of their lives has been the catalyst for developing Crazy8 Ministries. God has given her a powerful and effective teaching ministry that has broadened to include biblical counseling, conferences, preaching and discipleship, as well as a home for women and their children. All of this is to reach out to the broken and wounded and bring healing body, soul and spirit from the Lord Jesus Christ.
Lisa’s vision for discipleship encompasses the biblical concept of multiplication. She has a passion for raising people up to be leaders: teaching them to disciple and minister as well. This has taken the form of the Apprenticeship Program, a biblical counseling certification program, as well as various teachings and trainings she has written as well as diverse speaking engagements. She also offers personal consulting and coaching services through her website.
Lisa also has a passion to build relationships and serve within the community. Reaching out to people is a very important part of C8M’s mission and goals. And, like the Great Commission, C8M also has a vision to take the healing truths of God’s Word throughout the world as the Lord opens opportunities. Because of this Lisa has become very involved in various community and ministry groups within the Burleson area including:
- Burleson Chamber of Commerce Board
- Burleson Character Council
- Burleson Christian Ministerial Alliance
- Burleson Midday Rotary Club
- Chaplain for the Johnson County Republican Women
- Community Health Needs Assessment Advisory Team for Texas Health Huguley Hospital
- Cleburne Chamber of Commerce Women’s Leadership Initiative
- Couch & Russell Advisory Board
Lisa is ordained in the Gospel Ministry and has her Biblical Counseling Certification from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
