My name is Ludwig Swinkels and I am married to Heike, together we have three children whom I am proud to be father of. We live in Eindhoven where we also visit our home church “de Bron”, the gathering of believers. I grew up in a missionary, Christian family, in which I fully surrendered my life to Jesus Christ at age 16.

After having worked as a policeman for 11 years , I was called by God to minister as a fulltime evangelist. As a result of this I started the organization Crowns in 2010.


During my police work I saw how depraved the lives of people could be. I am enormously compassionate with people, through the love of Jesus, because I believe that every human is in reality the way Jesus sees him. My heart burns with desire, to see the Holy Spirit work powerfully through every believer. To work together, as one body in showing Gods love daily , in the places that we live, with impact. See:
