Immanuel has extended a call to Mr. Dan Green to be Educational Administrator of Immanuel's education centers.
Dan is in his 27th year of ministry and has been serving as principal at St. Paul’s Lutheran in Chicago Heights since 2009.

Dan’s wife, Sue, is employed by the Lutheran Church Extension Fund and works out of the Northern Illinois District office. They have two grown sons.
Dan writes about himself “The mission of the church is to ‘make disciples of all nations.’ In order to do this, the church must equip its members to carry out this task.” He sees himself as helping to facilitate this disciple-building.
Dan has received the training in the Ambassadors of Reconciliation provided by LCMS and is part of the district team to provide reconciliation when called upon in the district.
