The Spirit of NorthPointe
Do you feel like a failure at home, at work, or in the church? Do you feel like your life is a disappointment to others, yourself, or even God? Do you feel the pressure to do more and try harder in order to experience the love and acceptance you long for? Do you struggle with guilt, shame, and regret because of what you have done or failed to do?
We all feel the pressure to secure a sense of significance, approval, validation, and love and we conclude that if we’re going to experience these things we have to make it happen. Most of us are exhausted because we’re trying to justify ourselves by what we do, who we can become, and what others think about us.
If any of this describes you, NorthPointe Church opens wide its arms to graciously embrace you. Jesus invited weary and heavy laden people to come to him to find rest. We are a group of imperfect people learning what it means to rest in God’s perfect love for us. We rejoice in the good news that all of the love, all of the approval, and all of the value we long for are already ours because of what Jesus has done for us. At NorthPointe Church, you won’t hear “just do it!”, instead you will hear over and over again “it is finished!”

The Vision of NorthPointe
NorthPointe Church proclaims God’s perfect love to imperfect people in four ways: by reaching up, reaching in, reaching down, and reaching out.
By pursing our vision we aim to make our mission of proclaiming God’s perfect love to an imperfect world a reality.
Celebratory Worship: When we gather together for worship, we come as we are—bankrupt, beat-up, and burnt-out—in need of God’s grace and forgiveness. Through prayer, praise, and preaching we reach up, celebrating together the wonders of God’s unconditional love reaching down towards us.
Pastor Dan and Brittany Bush
I grew up during my formative years in Novi, Michigan. My wife, Brittany, grew up in Arlington, Ohio. We were both raised as church-goers, but it wasn’t until our latter years in high school that we really understood our need for forgiveness and a personal relationship with God.
I studied Civil Engineering as an undergraduate student and served for 10 years in the United States Air Force as an engineering officer. Eventually, my passion to design, build, and create was redirected from facilities and infrastructure to things more directly related to God’s kingdom.
After my service in the Air Force, God’s call on my life to enter ministry led me to attend seminary at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (Deerfield, Illinois) earning an M.Div. and a Th.M. in theology. I also went on to earn a Ph.D. in Systematic Theology in Aberdeen, Scotland.
My early years of ministry were spent on the mission field in the Philippines and China where I taught Bible and theology, preached, and counseled. My gift of teaching combined with my passion to design and build allowed me the opportunity to create educational programs for various Bible colleges overseas. In 2011, I moved back to the states to pastor a church.
I’ve also written three books: Embracing God as Father: Christian Identify in the Family of God (2015), Live in Liberty: The Spiritual Message of Galatians (2016), and Undefended: Discovering God When Your Guard is Down (2017), and I’m working on a fourth book tentatively titled Stand Firm: A Contemplative Commentary on 1 Peter.
My wife Brittany went to Bluffton University, earning a B.S. in Youth Ministry, and has served multiple churches in Ohio as a gifted worship leader and youth director. During her college years, she traveled extensively, leading worship in many churches throughout the country.
Our family is our joy. Brittany and I both have one child from our previous marriages: Kioni and Brayden. We also enjoy loving and serving the many friends that come into our spiritual family.
Having spent our lives inside the church, Brittany and I felt the need to create a place where weary and heavy laden people can find rest, where the guilty can find grace, where the fallen can find forgiveness, and where imperfect people can find God’s perfect love. With that longing in our hearts, Brittany and I (along with a handful of others) decided to start NorthPointe Church in Union, Kentucky. It has been the greatest challenge of our lives, but we are excited to see what God will do and who God will bring.
