Lead Pastor

Dan Frank

Pastor Dan started Grace Church in May of 1990 when, completely against the trend of the time, two small churches in Reno decided to merge. From those beginnings Pastor Dan has grown and led Grace to be a place where anyone is welcome to come and consider the things of God.

Executive Pastor

Jay Stearley

Jay joined Grace in 2010. He leads Grace’s staff and leaders to exalt God, move closer to Christ, and pursue each other as well as the people in our community. He brings the heart of the Gospel to the administration and business operations of the church.
