  • Wade Daul

    Senior Pastor

    Originally from Green Bay, Wisconsin, Pastor Daul has been at Immanuel for 30 years. First called as Associate Pastor in 1993, he was made senior pastor in 2013. Familiarly called "PD" by his students, he's also served as religion teacher at Martin Luther High School for over 20 years.  

    As senior or administrative pastor, PD oversees the many activities of Immanuel, Fairmont and guides the congregational leadership. A graduate of Concordia University, Mequon and Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, Pastor Daul has been encouraging young people to enter church work since the beginning of his ministry.  His love of God's Word and his commitment to the Lutheran Confessions give his ministry a rich Christ-focus.  


  • Alex Goodwin

    Associate Pastor

    Pastor Goodwin has spent the majority of his life split between St. Louis, MO; Rochester, NY; and Hutchinson, MN. He and his family are glad to now call Fairmont home. He was ordained and installed at Immanuel in 2022. 

    He met his wife, Esther, while going to school at Concordia University, Nebraska. They were married shortly after graduation and moved to St. Louis where he attended Seminary. They have since been blessed with two children. Malachi was born in 2020, just a couple weeks after they moved to Washington, IL for vicarage. Azaliah was born in 2022, just a couple days before Pastor Goodwin was installed at Immanuel.

    Julie began work as Immanuel's secretary in August of 1984. Since that time, she's worked with seven different pastors and seen both her town and congregation change and develop.
