    Lead Pastor //

    Hey I'm Aaron Sorenson, the Lead Pastor of Crow River Church. My wife Kristin and I have been married seven years, have a 3 year old son named Jonas and a 1 year old daughter named Lany. We live in Delano with our black lab named Bella. We both love coffee and serve on the board of a non-profit coffee shop in downtown Minneapolis. Our passion and hope is to live a life that matters and leaves a legacy. And so our goal is to live an unordinary life for the sake of Christ! I love music, food, good coffee, running, fishing, golfing, birding (not an easy thing to admit) and being outdoors. Come check out Crow River! My wife and I would love the chance to meet you!

  • Shelby Dahlheimer

    ELEMENTARY Ministries director //

    Hello! My name is Shelby Dahlheimer, and I am the Elementary Director at Crow River Church! I love children's ministry because I believe that children are so important to the heart of the Father and I seek to share that love to all children that walk through our doors! A little bit about myself includes that my husband Jimmy and I live in Delano and have a beautiful baby girl named Emersyn! We have a couple of horses named Socks and Remington and a crazy pup named Wesson. I obviously enjoy riding horses, but some other hobbies of mine are basketball, broomball, and anything to do with the outdoors! We love Crow River Church and the Delano community and we would absolutely love if you came up to introduce yourself!

  • Amy Treptau

    Community Life Director //

    Hi there! My name is Amy and I’m the Community Life Director at Crow River Church. I absolutely love my job and am grateful to be able to work alongside such an amazing staff and church family. I am blessed to serve CRC in coordinating events, community organizing/building and administration. My prayer is that as people interact with me, they see a faint reflection of the One who loves them with an everlasting love. Most Sundays you can find me at the information table - I find great joy in meeting new people and helping them get connected to our church. I feel like the luckiest girl on the planet being married to my husband, Kevin and we have three kids that we adore - Logan, Emma & Jack. I love life, laughter and anything that combines peanut butter and chocolate.

    Hi! My name is Kathryn and I am the Worship Leader and Student Ministries Associate here at Crow River Church.
