Donald Sevigne grew up in Holyoke, MA in a Christian family. He was saved at the age of 11 at Pioneer Valley Baptist Church in Westfield MA, under Pastor Jerry Cleveland. Soon after, he was baptized and surrendered his life to preach at a New England Preachers fellowship held at that church. His family, through the Lord’s leading, began attending Mountain View Baptist Church in Holyoke, MA, several years later under Pastor Eric Tharp.
At a teen conference in 2003 at Midwestern Baptist College, the Lord called Donald to preach and be a youth pastor. During his high school years, Donald began to slip away from the Lord’s call. It was at Camp Victory in Somerset, KY that God drew Donald back to His side. After high school graduation, Donald attended Golden State Baptist College in Santa Clara, California. He married Marissa Robles, who also grew up in Holyoke, MA in May of 2010. They then had the privilege to serve and train in their home church (Mountain View Baptist Church) in the music ministries, Children’s Programs, and bus ministry under the leadership of their pastor, Chad Correia. Donald was ordained into the Gospel Ministry in September of 2011 at Mountain View.
The Sevigne family moved to Jackson, Michigan, in January of 2012 to lead the youth ministry at Loomis Park Baptist Church under the leadership of their former youth pastor, Rich Zawadzki. After almost 7 years of ministry there, Donald obeyed the call of God on his life to plant a church in Cape Cod, MA. They begin deputation in August of 2018.
Donald & Marissa have been blessed to have four precious boys. Donald Jr. (June 2011) is our oldest, and is going into 2nd grade. Our second born, Seth John (January 2013) was diagnosed with autism in March of 2017. God has guided us each step of the way in this situation. He is nonverbal, and suffers from Sensory Processing Disorder, among other challenges, but God has been so good to us, and has taught us much through our journey with Seth! Our two youngest, Charles Paul (May 2015) and Brady Philip (October 2016) try to keep up with their brothers, and do a fine job!
This family has true heart and vision for the Cape, and a desire that God would change lives through the power of the Gospel.
