Ralph Sigler
Founding and Lead Pastor



Ralph Sigler is the founding pastor of Harvest Church. He is a graduate of Asbury College and Asbury Theological Seminary. His father, Dr. R.O. (Dick) Sigler was a pastor in south Alabama. His mother, Naomi Case Sigler is the daughter of a pastor, 4 of his 5 uncles were pastors, and both of his brothers minister in churches. Ralph married Rhonda Jones from Ocala, Florida (her father was also a pastor). They have 3 sons, 2 daughters-in-law and 1 grandson.

Before starting Harvest, Ralph served 14 years in youth ministry. He was at Enterprise First Methodist Church for over 9 years. In 1992, he moved his family to Lexington, Kentucky where he served as youth pastor 4 ½ years at Centenary United Methodist Church in Lexington, Kentucky while attending Asbury Theological Seminary.

Ralph has a passion for helping people find life at its best -- which is found in knowing and following Christ. He loves to see people experience Jesus firsthand, grow to love Him, and become strong disciples. He desires to see people become the people God created them to be and to become active in ministry in the church and in the world. Pastor Ralph teaches the continual filling of the Holy Spirit as the key to a victorious, joy-filled, fruitful life. He explains that the Lord wants to pour out His Spirit in abundance on everyone who is earnestly seeking Him.

Keith Frith
Executive / Small Groups Pastor



Keith oversees all of our small groups and group leaders. He desires to see each person at Harvest connected in small groups where the depth of their personal relationship with God and their capacity to influence others for Christ can be encouraged.

Before coming to Harvest, Keith was in management with a local business and has served as youth pastor, worship leader, and children's pastor.

He has served in almost all capacities at Harvest. Keith and his wife, Cheryl, have three children.

our vision for small groups: When God created you, he created you for connection, first, to Himself and his Kingdom, and secondly to his body (the church) and one another. The most important aspect of our life is relationship. Harvest is committed to helping you to fully realize these two realities. Our goal is not only to connect everyone in a life-giving small group, but to ensure they are getting the best out of those groups.

Harvest offers many Open Groups that meet regularly throughout the year, as well as providing multiple Group Cycle "On-Ramps" that have a variety of groups you can connect with. Choose to go deeper and commit to join a group.

Live beyond ordinary and live the life God intended for you by connecting deeply with others. May the Lord bless you as you live richly in Christ and with one another.

our vision for congregational care: Life is messy and can be painful. No one can avoid the mess and pain that happens in all of our lives at some point. What we do to help each other get through difficult times can be complex, yet on the other hand can be so simple. We can just show up at times and care can be extended. Other times, it may take words or listening to the words of others. May God multiply the fruit for His glory as we minister to one another in love.

Rusty Frith
Director of Worship & HPAA


Rusty Frith was born and raised in Dothan, Alabama. He began playing piano at age 8 and picked up guitar at age 12. After high school he went to study music at Berklee Music College in Boston, Massachusetts and graduated in 2000 with a bachelors' in Professional Music. He and his wife, Heather, have 1 son.

our vision for worship: "Let us be thankful and please God by worshiping him with holy fear and awe. For our God is a consuming fire." (Hebrews 12:28-29)

At Harvest, we gather not to be impressed by one another-what we wear, how we sound, who we are-but to be impressed by God and his mighty acts of salvation. We come to sing of who he is and tell of the great things he has done. We come to hear his voice resounding through his Word. During corporate worship, you will find our congregation worshipping in different ways. You might see people expressing their love for Jesus Christ by singing, clapping or raising their hands, bowing their heads in reverence or even kneeling at the altar in prayer.

He is our God, our creator, and we are commanded to worship him. Psalm 96:9 says, "Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness, tremble before him all the earth." Psalm 29:2 proclaims, "Give unto the Lord the glory due his name."

our vision for youth ministry: Our goal is to be a group which pursues God together; where young people encourage each other to know Jesus, grow as His disciples, and have fun together. "So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." 1 Corinthians 10:31

our vision for children's ministry: Harvest Church is a great place for families to build foundations for faith. Growing up is an exciting and demanding time. It is important to "build" up Godly character and give kids an amazing start by helping them discover what the Bible says about living a life that is pleasing to God.

Our goal is to nurture children and families so that they will KNOW the love of Jesus, GROW in the love of Jesus, and SHOW the love of Jesus.

By providing an environment that is Bible-based, creative, and exciting, we hope to make disciples and glorify Jesus.


It is such a blessing to have loving and caring teachers who provide creative learning experiences that help lay that foundation for your child's spiritual development. At Harvest, you'll find a variety of learning experiences and activities that provide encouragement and support for families.
