Mike Sigman joined the Grace Community Church leadership team in July 2011, when he was appointed Lead Pastor. In this role, he serves as Grace’s primary preacher, while developing strategic vision and leadership in consultation with the Ministry Council. He is also responsible for the expansion of GCC’s local church partnerships and global outreach, and pastoral team development.
The two things Mike really loves about being pastor is spending time with people and preaching God’s Word. His desire is to challenge seekers to become followers of Christ, and to challenge followers of Christ to deepen their relationship with Christ.
His hometown is nearby New Danville, and his home church is Bethel Evangelical Congregational Church in Conestoga, where he began his relationship with Jesus Christ and answered God’s call to ministry. In ministry since 1986, Mike has been a church planter, pastor, denominational overseer for the US and global Evangelical Congregational Church, and seminary president at Evangelical Seminary, Myerstown.
A frequent preacher at area churches and camp meetings, Pastor Mike also served on the boards of Rawlinsville Camp Meeting and Water Street Mission. A 1983 graduate of Lebanon Valley College, he holds a Master of Divinity from Evangelical Seminary, and an honorary Doctor of Divinity from Lancaster Bible College. Mike has completed post-graduate work at Fuller Theological Seminary. Mike and Jenny live in Smoketown, just east of Lancaster. They are the parents of four daughters: Katie, who is married to Brent Hostetter, Carolyn, Amanda, and Lydia. They are also grandparents to Camden, Grayson, and Macy Kate Hostetter.
