Meet our Staff


Michael Hansen


I grew up in Germany before moving to Michigan with my family. There I graduated from Concordia University, Ann Arbor before moving to St. Louis, where I graduated from Concordia Seminary. After becoming a pastor and serving at a church in Michigan, my wife, Hannah, and I came to Oceanside and we have been enjoying life with our dog, Denver, ever since!

🤝 When you meet me... Ask me about growing up in Germany, movies, or soccer!

Kim Nielsen

Administrative Assistant

I have been serving Immanuel for over 20 years. I handle everything administrative — including scheduling volunteers, sending email updates, and generally making sure everything in our church runs smoothly.

🤝 When you meet me... Ask me anything about our wonderful congregation!


Annie Gill

Music Director

I have been leading worship at Immanuel for nearly a decade! I live in South Oceanside with my two kids, Mikey and Skylar, and our two cats. Not only do I enjoy playing in our worship services, but I also play outside of church!

🤝 When you meet me... Ask me about the best place for live music in South O!
