R. Adam Berndt
Pastor Adam comes to Albuquerque by way of Chicagoland where he served on staff at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church in Arlington Heights, IL after earning a Master of Divinity degree from the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago. “God be with you! I am blessed to serve as lead pastor for this dynamic community of faith. The commitment to children and Christian education along with a sense of mission to the wider church and service to the world was part of God’s call to serve here. It is a blessing to learn and grow in life and faith together!”
Linda has been the Church Administrator at Cross of Hope since 1995. From Linda: “God has led me to Cross of Hope to utilize the skills of administration. It is a true blessing to work along the side of staff, volunteers and congregation folks. The ministry of interaction with all ages that happens during the week is what excites me to work at Cross of Hope. Being a disciple of Christ is fun and at the same time serious business. I have an accountability to God to live the life of Christ and to disciple those around me.”
Director of Music Ministry
“Thomas is looking forward to serving here at Cross of Hope, leading both the Praise + Team and Voices of Hope choir. He is excited to help discover what other musical groups and opportunities God presents to us as life unfolds at Cross of Hope.
Thomas is a sophomore at the University of New Mexico, and currently studying Music Theory and Music Performance. He is involved in the Symphony Orchestra, Wind Symphony, and Marching Band as well as the music director of UNM’s Premier A Capella group. Besides life on campus, Thomas is involved in the film scene here in Albuquerque and has eventual hopes to write soundtracks for film!”
