Who We Are
Pastor of Growth and Maturity
Dan Steinhart joined the Grace team in November of 2016. He brings a varied employment portfolio with him. He spent ten years in healthcare, working in the ER as well as facilitating large process-redesign projects for a local hospital system. He’s also spent significant time working in manufacturing, supporting the auto industry.
Dan’s heart has always been focused on ministry in the local church. While working in healthcare he served as the primary Worship Leader for 17 years at Grace Church in White Lake, MI. He also served there as an Elder and Pastor for twenty years and as the lead pastor at Grace Church in Waterford, MI.
Dan attended Moody Bible Institute where he received a diploma in Bible and Theology. He has a B.A. in History from Trinity College (Deerfield, IL) where he also met his wife, Jeanne (1983). Most recently (2009), he completed a Masters in Spiritual Formation and Leadership through Spring Arbor University (SAU). Dan is also an adjunct professor for SAU.
Dan and Jeanne have one son, Dan, who is married to Casie and lives in Grand Rapids, MI. You would think that with all the house projects he does, that he would enjoy that, but not so much! What he really enjoys is playing his guitar, reading, and taking photographs… lots and lots of photographs!
