President's Office

Rev. Russ Sommerfeld joined Concordia’s Theology faculty in 2016.  He has served as a rural dual parish pastor in Kansas and a small town pastor in Nebraska, as well as serving as a senior pastor at a Nebraska church with a campus ministry.  In 2015, he completed 12 years as president of the Nebraska District of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.  He is married to Donna “Nino,” a retired psychiatric nurse.  They have two married sons and one married daughter and four granddaughters.  He enjoys distance road bicycling and music.

My passion is bringing God-given years of ministry experience into the classroom with students who are eager to apply what they are learning.
