Danny Anderson is the Senior Pastor at Emmanuel Church. He has served in this role since March of 2006. The Lord prepared him for the position by calling him to serve as the Senior High Pastor at Emmanuel from 2001-2005. Pastor Anderson graduated from Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia with a Bachelor of Science in Communication in 2001 and received his pastoral license later that year.
His leadership style is inspired by some of today’s most influential pastors as he constantly studies the writings of Bill Hybels, John Piper, Andy Stanley and many others. He also studies top corporate leaders to gain a different perspective on what it takes to lead a successful organization.
Since Danny’s transition into Senior Pastor, the vision to ‘See People Come to Christ and Grow in Christ’ has flourished and the Emmanuel congregation has grown to 3,000+. The church now has 2 locations – one in Greenwood, IN and another video venue located 20 miles north in Indianapolis, IN. God is using Pastor Anderson’s energetic, transparent speaking style to reach many who are far from God and introduce them to a relationship with Him.
Danny and his wife, Jackie, live in Greenwood with their two sons, Andrew and Beau, and their daughter, Ruby.
