Leadership at Immanuel starts with Jesus
The leadership team of Immanuel includes clergy, lay staff, and an elected vestry. The entire team works with one focus in mind: “to equip the saints for the work of ministry, to build up the body of Christ” (Ephesians 4:12)
Clergy and Staff
Melissa joined Immanuel’s staff as Children’s Minister in January 2017. Melissa and her family have been members of Immanuel since 2015. She lives in Woodbridge, VA with her husband of 10 years, Brian. They are blessed to have three young children: Lillian, Amanda and Owen.
Danny joined the church in 1986 and has served twice on the Vestry. While working with Fairfax County Government, he volunteered in the office printing and folding bulletins and newsletters. He has been an usher and with his wife, Alice, is a member of the Altar Guild. Danny also serves on our Sound Team. He has one daughter and four grandchildren.
Pat has faithfully served Immanuel as our Bookkeeper for the past seven years. She is also a proud grandmother and wouldn’t mind showing you pictures after church!
Tyra, her husband Mike, and their family are long-time members of Immanuel. After retiring from a career in Accounting and Finance, Tyra joined the Immanuel staff in June, 2015.

Educated here and abroad, Meredyth made her concert debut at 16. Many years later, she celebrates 35 years as our organist.

The Vestry is an elected body of lay leaders that provides oversight in the business affairs, activities, and property of the church; prays regularly for the church and its mission; and serves as a resource for godly counsel, biblical wisdom, and vision casting with the Rector.
