Dane was called as pastor of Naperville Presbyterian Church in 2020 after being part of the church for 13 years along with his family: his college sweetheart, Stacey, and their five kids, Zach, Nate, Jeremiah, Chloe, and Ben.
Dane is a graduate of Wheaton College (BA), Covenant Theological Seminary (MDiv, ThM), and Wheaton College Graduate School (PhD in New Testament). Prior to coming on staff, he worked for ten years in Christian publishing at Crossway in Wheaton. He is the author of several books such as Gentle and Lowly: The Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers (2020), Edwards on the Christian Life: Alive to the Beauty of God (2014), and Defiant Grace: The Surprising Message and Mission of Jesus (2011).
Dane’s life purpose is to glorify in the endless grace of God and to call others to join him there. It’s all about Jesus—and his unspeakable heart for sinners.
