Rev. Terilynn Russ, Senior Pastor

Our Senior Pastor, Rev. Terilynn Russ, began her career with a degree   in communications as a television news reporter. She spent 20 years of “learning” in a career that spanned both radio and television news broadcasting. Terilynn received her Master of Divinity from Asbury Theological Seminary in 1992 and has been serving churches in the Rocky Mountain Conference since 1997 after serving churches in the  Louisiana Conference.

Terilynn has been part of the Good Shepherd family since 2013; her sermons tend to be moderate in theology, taking seriously the Incarnation, Crucifixion, and Resurrection, and seeking to follow God’s call to each of us to live in holiness.
