Leadership & Staff

Pastor Rob Love serves the church as the Elder for Preaching and Vision. The Loves started ministry at Immanuel in March, 2016 after sixteen years of Pastoral ministry in Jefferson, WI and Greenwood, WI. Rob Graduated from Maranatha Baptist University with an undergraduate in Bible and Church Ministries and Liberty Theological Seminary with a Masters in Theology. Rob’s greatest passion in church life is declaring, with conviction, the relevant truth of God’s Holy Word so that the faith family can grow to imitate our glorious redeemer, Jesus Christ. Rob is joyfully joined in life and ministry with his wife, Lynelle. As former college athletes, Rob and Lynelle both enjoy playing and coaching sports and anything that includes spending time with their four children.
Pastor Mike Fischer serves as the Pastor of Worship. Mike is a graduate of Drake University with a Bachelor of Music degree, and earned a Master of Music degree at the New England Conservatory of Music. He served as a worship pastor in the Twin Cities before coming to Immanuel in the spring of 2009. His desire is to see congregations engaged in worship and see how worship is not a few songs sung on Sunday morning, but is a foundational part of our life as a believer. An important part of Mike’s ministry at Immanuel is our small group ministry. Mike is also active in our community as a musician and teacher and has been featured in concerts and on many recordings. Music and articles can be found on his website, Piano Inspirations.
Clint Steinke serves as the Interim Youth Director of IBC. He and his wife, Erica, have three children: Jayda, Carson and Kendyl. They have been faithfully serving IBC since 2008. Clint currently works as a Social Studies Teacher at Abbotsford High School, and working towards his Masters Degree in Administration through Concordia University of Wisconsin. Erica, a former teacher as well, is a stay-at-home Mom while homeschooling their children, and a daycare provider part-time. However their desire for youth goes beyond the classrooms and their home as they have a passion to plant and cultivate the Word of God to the youth of IBC. Both Clint and Erica have an enthusiasm to be with youth and invest in their walks with our Lord. Together Clint and Erica have a desire to know Christ and to make Him known as The Way, The Truth and The Life.
