Siegling, Vice President John.Siegling@SHDR.faith
John Siegling was born in Charleston, SC, raised in St. Michael’s Church and now lives on Wadmalaw Island near Charleston with his wife Judy of four and a half years. They were married after having met through Lutheran Hospice grief groups following the deaths of their respective spouses within one month of each other. Between them they have eight children and 18 grandchildren. Great-grands are now on the way on a more and more regular basis.
His education consisted of concentrations in science and language. He even spent three years studying medicine before leaving medical school to become a bacteriological researcher at Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, where he was a member of the team that developed the first successful vaccine used to protect troops from meningococcal meningitis.
Having a large family necessitated his having to learn many of the trades involved in keeping a house running. As a result he became quite proficient in the fields of carpentry, electrical wiring, plumbing, and house painting, skills which have helped him enormously on Mission trips.
As Vice President of Servant’s Heart, John brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Board of Directors. Disaster Relief projects and mission trips have taken him as far as Miami during Hurricane Irma, SC and NC with Florence and Apalachicola with Hurricane Michael. Other mission trips include a trip to Tennessee to help impoverished families in need. His wife, Judy has accompanied him on some of these trips.
John has been a man of many hats. He has delivered babies, been a bacteriologist, served on IT teams not only in Colleges but also with the Navy, being part of the team that built a new internet system for the Navy, beginning at SPAWAR in Charleston. At one point he even was principal mechanic at the EXXON station owned by him and his oldest son in Brick, NJ. His particular skills as a musician afforded him opportunities to sing opera as a baritone first in Washington, DC, and then in New York. In addition he served as organist and leader of song for over twenty years in the New York Area and played for over 12,000 services in the New York area, primarily in Roman Catholic services, but also as cantor and choir member to numerous synagogues in the New York area for nearly fifty years. During fifty years of singing in the synagogues throughout NY and NJ, he has felt a powerful drive to share his love of Christ among myriads of people.
Today he is active as a parishioner in both traditional and contemporary worship services and is very active in Bible study programs at the church. He participates in Mission work ongoing in the Southeast US and in Disaster Relief there as well. He is an avid proponent of ecumenical endeavors in the local Fishers of Men organization which promotes genuine goodwill among the many diverse cultures found in the Carolina Lowcountry. He has joined other members of the board in Kairos mission work as well. He also has been trained with the Southern Baptists and is qualified to assist them in their relief efforts. Also he has qualified as a certified member of CERT, which stands for Community Emergency Response Team of first responders in local crises.

lives to be in service to Him and others. As a trained pianist I have
joyfully served as main church pianist over twenty years [for
different churches], keyboardist in praise bands and instructor of
piano for our business. Alongside my husband, our 30 years of
ministry service has taken us throughout the United States, Canada,
and Israel where again, the gift of music has been my primary
service. Our four children have naturally been our greatest joy and I
now get the pleasure of grandchildren! Our daughters married military
and our son serves. We pray for them and all our armed service
personnel. It has been my pleasure to serve in the capacity as
Secretary for two non-for-profit organizations: Play It Forward and
St Augustine Youth Orchestra. Each focused on youth development as
musicians. As secretary I was responsible for quarterly board meeting
