Meet the Pastor
Rev. Dr. Kyle Sorensen has served our congregation since 2002. He received a B.A. in History from Dordt University ('99), a M.Div. from Mid-America Reformed Seminary ('02), and a D. Min. from Heidelberg Theological Seminary ('21). He has been blessed by a loving and supportive wife, Donielle, and four children.
Our Pastor is supported by the ministry of elders and deacons who, together with him, lead the sheep at Salem Ebenezer.
“My greatest joy is to help lead someone to see Jesus on the pages of Scripture. No matter what page we are on, whether it’s Old or New Testament, Jesus is showing us His character and mission. Even when the trials of life tend to cloud over and crowd out the presence of Jesus, I look to lead our church members to see how God is at work in their life. He is not done keeping His promises to lead us to the joy and peace of our salvation.”

An excellent source of most Bible commentaries, devotions, and theological studies written throughout Church history up until the 20th Century. They are all available for free. There is a helpful study link where you can have the Bible on the left and a commentary on the right, such as John Calvin’s commentary.
