Rev. Ron Zeigler

During his undergraduate days at Towson University in 1981, Ron came to a saving faith in Jesus Christ. There he completed a General Studies degree and Secondary Science teaching certificate. Heeding a call to be a missionary in the public schools, he spent six years teaching in two Baltimore County Schools. Then, responding to a call to pastoral ministry Ron graduated in 1995 with a Masters of Divinity degree from Chesapeake Theological Seminary, while concurrently doing a three year internship at Cornerstone Presbyterian Church in Manassas Virginia.

 

From 1995 to 2014 he served two congregations in Central Pennsylvania, one as an associate pastor and the other as a solo pastor. During these years he focused much time and effort on equipping the saints for works of ministry, particularly focusing on discipling men in their daily lives. Ron took a sabbatical from pastoral ministry from 2014 to 2021 to focus full-time on finishing the homeschooling of his three youngest children, while his wife pursued her nursing career. In addition to homeschooling his own children, he enjoyed teaching Church History and Algebra in their kid's homeschool coop and in a local Christian high school.

Ron and his precious wife Kathy have been married since 1989 and are parents of four adult children; one in college and three pursuing their careers. In addition to loving to talk about New Life in Jesus Christ and reading books on history, theology, and philosophy, he enjoys watching baseball games and freestyle wrestling, collecting vintage Matchbox cars, writing calligraphy, along with participating in outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking and fishing.
