HOW WE STARTED

Immanuel began in the summer of 1979 in a home in south Scottsdale. God led Pastor Richard Fellars and his wife Linda to return home to the Phoenix area to plant the church after completing his graduate degree at a Christian university in South Carolina. 


Dr. Fellars is currently serving as Immanuel's lead Pastor, and Immanuel today remains continually committed  to the Scriptures, the Gospel, and the glory of God. Our ongoing passion and desire is to reach our community and the world with the Gospel and to disciple families and individuals to confess Christ as Savior, follow Christ as Lord, and love Christ as their greatest treasure.
