Pastor Ron Glusenkamp joined Desert Hills Lutheran Church as our Interim Pastor on June 1, 2021. He is a graduate of Concordia Senior College and a graduate of Christ Seminary – Seminex. He was ordained in 1981. Pastor Ron has served four congregations: Bethany Lutheran Church in Cherry Hills Village, CO; St. Paul Lutheran Church, Wichita, KS; Immanuel Lutheran Church, Kansas City; and Gethsemane Lutheran Church, St Louis, MO. He was also the Vice President of Customer Relations for what is now Portico, was a guest Lutheran Preacher on Day 1, and served in the ELCA churchwide office. Finally, he is a published author.

Pastor Ron and his lovely wife, Sue Ann, will celebrate their 45th wedding anniversary in July.

Pastor Ron is a yeastologist (bread and pretzel baker) and enjoys bike riding. As a pastor, he listens, prays, preaches, teaches, and invites neighbors, friends, and members to let their light shine. His favorite part of being a pastor is telling and celebrating the story of Jesus and his love.

Pastor Ron shares that “it’s great to be here!” Please introduce yourself to him after services.

Associate Pastor

Hello! I'm Pastor Ken.  Thank you for searching out our website.  We welcome you into the ministry of Desert Hills Lutheran Church.  I have served as Associate Pastor here since 2015, after serving in pastoral ministry in Minnesota and North Dakota for nearly 45 years.  My focus at Desert Hills Lutheran is mainly in the area of Pastoral Care.  I am very excited to also share with our Stephen Ministry Team in their individualized care of members and friends.  If you, or someone you know, are in need of visitation and/or prayer time, please inform the church office or myself.  I look forward to sharing our ministry together.
