Swinburne will also be a pastor to local California pastors as well as supervise churches in Utah, Nevada, northern California, and Hawaii.

The pastor grew up in Huntington and graduated from Emery High School in 1972. He graduated from the College of Eastern Utah, earned his bachelor of science in mining engineering at the University of Utah, and a masters of religious education from Golden Gate Theological Seminary in 1979.
