MEET THE TEAM

Pastor Dana Wilhelmsen

It is my great joy to welcome you to Immanuel Lutheran Ministries. I’m Pastor Dana and I wanted to take a moment and thank you for visiting our website. Immanuel Lutheran Ministries exists to reveal the beauty of God’s Kingdom to people, neighborhoods and cultures by sharing the goodness of Jesus with all people by what we say and what we do. Nothing would please me more than for you to join us on the journey. I’d like to personally invite you to visit one our five worship services at either of our two locations and share with us your story so that we can get to know you and your family a bit better. Even if ILM isn’t the best fit for you, our prayer is that you join Jesus on His mission in some way, somewhere. After all, Jesus has poured out His life for you in such a powerful and personal way and invites you and your family to take the next step of joining Him on His mission. Thanks you so much for stopping by our website. Don’t be a stranger, we’d love to get to know you better!

Pastor Dana has served ILM as Sr. Pastor for over 8 years. He is married to Vera where they began their ministry planting churches in Arizona and working to bring people to Jesus from out of life in the cults. Dana and Vera have 3 girls, grand kids and a great grand baby too!
