Elder Samuel “Cisco” Duncan, IV

Born to Samuel & Dorothy Duncan, Jr., Samuel “Cisco” Duncan, IV is a native of Lansing, Michigan.  Growing up in a Christian home, at a young age he knew that one day he wanted to be a preacher of the Gospel, but it wasn’t until February 10, 1995 during his senior year in college he accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior.  Cisco is married and has two children.

Cisco holds a Bachelors of Business Administration degree in Accounting, and is currently in pursuit of a Master of Arts in Christian Leadership at Cornerstone University/Grand Rapids Theological Seminary.  Cisco's secular work experience consists of over 25 years with government agencies, retail, sales, and numerous years in entrepreneurial endeavors such as financial services, real estate, accounting and bookkeeping, taxes, consulting, restaurant ownership, etc.

After graduating from Saginaw Valley State University where he received athletic scholarships for football and track, Cisco returned home to be an active member at Lansing Church of God in Christ, Home of New Faith Ministries.  While serving faithfully, he was ordained as an Elder in the Church Of God In Christ in August of 2004.  Cisco is currently serving as the Assistant Pastor to his father, Bishop Samuel Duncan, Jr., a church Trustee, a member of the Finance Committee for the Third Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction of Southwest Michigan and many other roles at both the local and state level.

With a passion to preach, teach, and live the Word of God, Cisco has ministered at various services, revivals, events, and workshops.  With a passion to minister to PKs (Preachers Kids), he has established SOAP Ministries (Son of A Preacher) to help PK’s accept and embrace who God has called them to be through Jesus Christ-- not a celebrity, not a rock star, not a hip hopper, but a disciple of Jesus Christ.  

The most important thing he wants you to know about him is that he is saved, sanctified, and Holy Ghost filled!
