Dr. Bruce Wilder
It is my joy to serve as senior pastor at Faith. Ordained in 1984, I served congregations in Minnesota and Virginia before coming to Albuquerque. I also served as a chaplain in the Army Reserve. My wife, Kirsten, and I have lived here since 1998. Like many of you, New Mexico has truly become our home. My interests include archery, hiking, biking, and camping.
Our four children, Jessica, Emily (husband, Brian), Meredith, and Melinda (husband, Israel), are adults now. We are enjoying a new season of life with our grandchildren, Carson, Landon, Oksana, Makaria and Elazar.
People often ask me, “What does it mean to be a Lutheran?” The best answer I can give is this, “It means being a Christian!” Here at Faith, we are serious about following Jesus and inviting others to experience the joy that is ours as sons and daughters of the living God. Come join us.
