Organization Description

Grace Point Church began in 2001 after our Lead Pastor, Mike McDaniel, returned to Bentonville, AR after serving on the mission field in Zambia. Our heart is to be an authentic church for those who have given up on the church but haven't given up on God.
We exist to help people Know God, Love People, and Live Sent to make a difference in the world. This happens through engaging worship and teaching, deep community discipleship, and real service opportunities in Northwest Arkansas and around the world.

If you were to ask some of our members what we are known for, they'd tell you three things:

1. A Global Heart
2. A Passion for Foster & Adoptive Families
3. A Desire to See Deep Discipleship take place

We have an awesome, passionate staff team who love to be together and invest in one another.
