Pastor -
Reverend Jose Luis La Torre-Cuadros

The Rev. Jose-Luis La Torre-Cuadros was born in Lima, Peru and he was ordained into pastoral ministry on October 31, 1998. In February 1992 he married Luz Elena (Lucy) Miranda, interpreter and translator. They have two children: Nicolas and Miranda.

Pastor Jose-Luis earned a degree in Law and Political Science from San Marcos University in Peru and he worked as a lawyer before entering the Evangelical Seminary of Lima. In 2002-2003 he pursued his Masters in Philosophy at San Marcos University. His last call in Peru was to the Lutheran Congregation Cristo Rey in Lima, where he was involved in the theological education of new leaders and in ecumenical affairs. From September 2005 to 2011 he served as an Associate Pastor at St. John's Lutheran Church in Sacramento CA.

He also served as the Dean of the Sacramento Conference and the ELCA Sierra Pacific Synod Council (member at large) in CA. Later, as Bishop´s Assistant, Pastor Jose Luis provided care and connection with congregations, pastors, congregations in transition and call processes. On Nov 22nd, 2015 Pastor Jose-Luis started to serve the Lutheran church of Our Saviour in Tampa FL.

ELCA has a new website

As we designed and built the new site, we tried to keep at the forefront of our work the primary audiences to which it is aimed: ELCA members and worshippers, rostered leaders (lay and clergy), other leaders in congregations, synods and partner organizations — and those who are seeking involvement in a worshipping community that puts God’s unconditional love in Christ Jesus front and center. These are the people to whom we wish to provide relevant and accessible information through this dynamic new site. The new site offers better search tools, easier navigation, an extensive resource “library” and an interactive map to show where Lutherans are active in the world. It also is more user-friendly on mobile devices.

We hope and pray — and will continue to work to assure — that this new website will help advance the work of God’s ministries that we all share. As always, we appreciate your partnership.
