About our Pastor

Pastor Dave Libengood has been in full-time ministry since 1973 and was called to Pastor Immanuel Baptist Church in May of 1991.  He was born and raised in Pennsylvania but has lived in the Tidewater area since he attended seminary in Greenville, South Carolina where he met his wife, Selba. He holds a Bachelor of Ministry Degree and a Master of Pastoral Counseling Degree from Andersonville Baptist Seminary and has served as Executive Board Member of SBCV (Southern Baptist Conservative of Virginia).  He is Chief of Chaplains for the Chesapeake Police Department and also holds a Senior Certificate with International Conference of Police Chaplains. 

Our Mission


Immanuel Baptist Church takes its inspiration from Ezekiel 34:16 “I will seek the lost, and I will bring back the strayed. . ."


Oh how easy it is to get lost! With our cell phones and iPads, our 24-hour news cycles, there’s virtually nowhere to go for a moment of peace and quiet.


That’s where Immanuel Baptist Church comes in. We provide a holy place of respite in the tumult of life. So come, put aside the cares of the week and find yourself in the presence of God.
