Client: Immanuel Health Center

The vision for Immanuel Health Center was birthed by a group people with a desire to serve the under-insured in McLean County, Illinois. In 2012, after a few years of prayer, planning, and preparation, the Immanuel Health Center facility had been approved for occupancy and was ready to serve patients—as soon as the administrative, financial, and personnel pieces were placed.

Michael was asked to serve as interim executive director to get the doors open and to begin serving people in the area. In conjunction with the Center’s medical director and advisory board, Michael developed the operations, staffing, finances, fund-raising, direction, and administration needed to launch the facility. The grand opening was celebrated in April 2013.
