  • Pastor Paul VanDeberg

  • Pastor Sara VanDeBerg         

    I was ordained in 2002 and have served as a pastor ever since, in both large and small congregations. Pastor Paul and I have been co-pastors at Immanuel since 2017. We have three children and two dogs who keep us busy at home. In my free time, I enjoy quilting, reading, and hiking.




    I grew up in Texas, where I met my spouse Jennifer and graduated from Texas Lutheran University with a degree in Theology with a concentration in Youth Ministry. We have two children and have been members of Immanuel for several years. Prior to joining the staff at Immanuel, I served as a Camp Director for 15 years. I enjoy sports of all types and like to be outdoors whenever possible. I am excited to share the message that God loves you no matter what and no matter what God loves you.

  • Sarah Beauregard

    Children's Director

    I was born and raised in Elkhorn and am currently living there now with my husband and two children. I grew up in a Lutheran church and am so thrilled to bring the love of Christ to the Children of Immanuel.

    I have been a member of Immanuel since 1989 with my husband Jim. In that time we have had three children grow up at Immanuel and now enjoy bringing our grandchildren as well. Thanks to so many people here, our church is a big part of our family too.

  • Rick Bromeland

    Facilities Manager

    Hi! I'm Ranger Rick - I'm retired from the Army  and now work full time as the maintenance supervisor at Immanuel Lutheran Church. I love my church family and I love keeping our house of worship problem and worry free and nice. My nickname Ranger Rick was given to me by the youth group kids.

    Administrative Assistant

  • ariane Lewkowicz


  • Doug Hager

    Financial Recording Secretary

    I have been attending Immanuel since early 2014 and consider our church an important part of my life. Being a lifelong "numbers" person is a good fit for my role in keeping track of your giving. This helps in the budgetary process and hopefully gives everyone accurate records for their personal use. Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions.
