REV. RALPH SIGLER
Lead Pastor, Harvest Church
Ralph Sigler, Lead and Founding Pastor of Harvest Church in Dothan, Alabama, comes from a family of pastors and Asburians, including his grandfather, father and mother, uncles and aunts, both of his brothers and several cousins. He graduated from Asbury College in 1981, served as youth pastor for nine years at First Methodist in Enterprise, Alabama, and four years at Centenary United Methodist, Lexington, while attending Asbury Theological Seminary where he graduated in 1996. He was ordained in the Alabama/West Florida Conference, and with his wife (Rhonda Jones '81) started a new church in their home soon after.
Throughout his ministry, Rev. Sigler has been intentional to create worship services where people can experience the presence of God and are invited to allow His transforming power to touch their lives. Harvest, averaging over 1,600 on Sundays, places high priority on reaching the unchurched, engaging in authentic worship, and meaningful relationships through small groups. The Siglers are blessed to have three sons who are serving the Lord as fourth generation Asburians: Daniel ('09), Joel ('13, married to Olivia Windham), and Paul ('17, Anchored Class).
