Dane Ortlund was called to serve as senior pastor of Naperville Presbyterian Church in 2020 after being part of the church for 13 years 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 nonprofit Christian publishing at Crossway in Wheaton. He is the author of several books such as Deeper: Real Change for Real Sinners (2021), In the Lord I Take Refuge: 150 Daily Devotions through the Psalms (2021), and Gentle and Lowly: The Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers (2020).

Dane’s life purpose is to glory 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.
