I’m Pastor Dan Ritter, currently serving Immanuel as your vacancy Pastor. I retired from full time ministry in 2018. My wife, Dianne and I moved here from Minnesota to Parrish, FL this past November. We have been married nearly 25 years and have 6 children, all married and 7 grandchildren; 2 of which are members here at Immanuel.
My son, Rob and his wife Jackie are Immanuel members as well as my sister Lynn Smith.
I have regular office hours at the church Monday through Thursday from 8am – till noon.
I’m excited for the future of Immanuel and I enjoy working with Pastor Miguel and the Hispanic ministry just starting here. We both covet your prayers as we strive to serve Immanuel Church and school and to be faithful servants of our Lord.
May God bless us all through this time of transition and moving forward in ministry all to the glory of God.
