Grace Pointe Church

Grace Pointe Church is a multisite non-denominational church located in Naperville, IL and Plainfield, IL, which are suburbs of Chicago. The church is led by Lead Pastor Dan Painter, who was recently named the Lead Pastor after holding several different positions over the past 20 years at the church. Grace Pointe currently sees around 500 people in-person Sunday mornings at their Naperville campus, with another 300 that attend their Plainfield campus. The Naperville campus offers three identical services on Sunday mornings with a modern style of worship.

Grace Pointe serves a unique culture that has an extremely high focus and priority on families. Naperville is currently ranked the top place in the country to raise a family as they boast incredible school systems and after school programs, low crime rate, economic growth and affordability. This means the church has the difficult task of reaching very busy people that have a high set of expectations when it comes to programming for their kids or themselves of any kind. Grace Pointe has taken this challenge on and excels in their outreach programs and high expectations for excellence in everything they do, particularly on Sunday mornings for worship and throughout the week for family ministries.
