Dan Sheafer

Associate Pastor

I can do all things through Him (Christ) who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

I have served as associate pastor at Emmanuel since July 2016. I truly enjoy serving at Emmanuel because of the combination of the staff and congregation together. Emmanuel has wonderful members and a truly amazing staff of which I’m honored to be a part.

I was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and moved to Fort Wayne in 2002. I attended Concordia Lutheran High School and then went to Concordia University in Seward, Nebraska. After graduation from Concordia Seward, I attended Concordia Theological Seminary, here in Fort Wayne. During my time at seminary, I was also able to attend Westfield House in Cambridge, England, for a year.

My wife Madeline, also a graduate of Concordia University Nebraska, teaches first grade at St. Paul Lutheran School. We are looking forward to the birth of our first child in June.
