Aron Utecht - Senior Pastor

Aron is originally from Nebraska, where he worked as the Pastor of Adult Discipleship at his previous ministry.  Aron has an MDiv from Denver Seminary, and an MA in American History from the University of Nebraska-Kearney, and loves to study the Bible and history.  One of his greatest joys is helping others meet God as He has revealed himself in the Scriptures, and helping others see the importance of ideas.

His other joy is his family.  He and his wife Jenn have three children, Abigail, Elizabeth and Benjamin.  For fun, Aron likes cycling, camping, kayaking, hiking, and exploring the outdoors with his family.  He also loves college football, and wishes he had more time to read.



Youth Pastor - Will Kuster

Being in ministry has been my goal in life since 10th grade, and I am happy to be serving with the wonderful people of Immanuel Baptist Church.  I grew up in the Detroit area of Michigan and had the chance to work with my home church’s youth group soon after graduating High School. I enjoyed every aspect of youth ministry and serving made me want to know God’s Word more deeply. I attended Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, and my educational pursuits took me to Catalunya, Israel, and Scotland, where I studied at the University of Edinburgh. Since then I have served both as a volunteer in various capacities at churches and as a High School Bible teacher for a few years. I consider myself very fortunate to be able to be here now, and am thankful for this opportunity to build relationships with students and teach them from God’s Word!
