Matthew Sigler has been selected to be the campus minister for the 2014-15 school year at Southwestern College. He takes over for Ashlee Alley who left SC for a position with the Great Plains Conference of the United Methodist Church.
“We’re very fortunate to have such a capable person ready at hand as Ashlee moves to her new position with our sponsoring conference,” says Southwestern College President Dick Merriman. “Matt’s scholarly achievements and his background in ministry and worship equip him well for leading our chapel and campus ministry program.”
Sigler is in his second year at Southwestern College. He spent last year teaching as a visiting scholar. Prior to coming to SC, Sigler lived in Boston while attending Boston University as he studied for his Ph. D in liturgical studies.
Sigler earned a bachelor of arts degree in history from Huntingdon College in Montgomery, Ala., and his master of arts degree in Christian ministries (concentrating on worship studies) from Asbury Seminary in Wilmore, Ky.
Sigler is originally from Daphne, Ala., and currently resides in Winfield with his wife, Shannon, and son, Elijah.
