“I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:3-6

My gratitude is great indeed to be back in the land of Enchantment joining the people of God who are at work being God’s hands and feet in the world! During my first tour of Los Alamos I was blessed to be a Guidance Counselor at the Middle School as well as Bethlehem’s church secretary. Both positions allowed me to fall in love with this land and this people of God. I am originally from Knoxville, Tennessee and was baptized and confirmed at Christus Victor Lutheran Church. I earned my Bachelor of Social Work degree from the University of Tennessee and later my Masters degree in Social Work from the University of Maryland. After discerning a call to ordained ministry that began when I was a child I entered the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg and graduated in May 2012 with a Masters of Divinity degree.

I have been blessed to work primarily with youth in the public and non-public sectors throughout my professional career as well being on the staff of Evangelical Lutheran Church in Frederick, Maryland, First English Lutheran Church in Baltimore, Maryland, New Hope Lutheran Church in Columbia, Maryland and of course here at Bethlehem. I was ordained at New Hope Lutheran Church in July 2012 and installed at Bethlehem in August 2012. I am so excited to be called as Bethlehem’s Youth, Family and Education Pastor!

I am also blessed to have been married to Ray Ferry since 1985 and to be mom to my amazing children Noah and Morgan. These “Ferrys” keep me laughing and have loved and supported me in ways that can only come from God! They are my biggest fans and often my partners in hiking, cycling, swimming, and just hanging out in general.

My name is Pastor Russ Sorensen. I join the ministry of Bethlehem Lutheran Church as Intentional Interim Pastor February 1, 2017.  My role is to work with the leaders and all the people of Bethlehem Lutheran during this transition time to prepare for a great future with renewed ministry focus and pastoral leadership. I look forward to every opportunity to focus on God's unique mission for us in transformational times.

I have served for over 40 years as a pastor in a variety of settings. I began in a two-point parish setting in southwest Minnesota. Then I served as a solo Pastor near the Twin Cities, followed by a call as an Associate Pastor in Albuquerque, as a Senior Pastor in a suburban Chicago setting, and as a Senior Pastor in a medium size town. I have served as the Intentional Interim Senior Pastor at Cross of Hope Lutheran Church and Schools on the west side of Albuquerque, at St Luke Lutheran Church on the northeast side and All Saints on the northwest side of town. My wife, Cheri and I own a home on the northwest side of Albuquerque near our daughter, son-in-law and our two granddaughters. We have another daughter, a son-in-law and two grandsons in the Chicago area.  

Through the years as a pastor, I have been most energized by the development of the ministry of the whole people of God in everyday life.  This comes out of a core conviction that through our baptism into Christ, we are all called to Christian vocation. As followers of Jesus we share the good news through the "Great Command" of Jesus to love God and love others.  But we are also challenged and called to fulfil the "Great Commission" of Jesus to go and make disciples of all nations.

I look forward to the many opportunities to work with all of you, listen to your stories of faith and the development of Bethlehem’s ministry! Please feel free to introduce yourself to me and to Cheri as we work to get to know you and how you connect with Bethlehem. Pray with all of us for God’s guidance and wisdom as we work together to respond to God’s gracious call to let the light of Christ shine in all that we do together!
