Meet Our CtK Staff

Pastor Caroline Satre

Pastor Caroline Satre

Senior Pastor

A native Hoosier, Pastor Caroline went to seminary in Minnesota, interned in Southern California, and served congregations in the Chicagoland area for nearly twenty-three years. Pastor Caroline is, as she puts it, “very Lutheran.” She is a third generation Pastor Satre and is married to Pastor Brad Davick, whose father was a pastor. As senior pastor, she has an eye for detail but a holistic vision of CtK’s mission to love and serve the world. When away from church, Caroline enjoys world travel, hanging out at the lake, and spending family time with Pastor Brad and daughter Ellie.

Pastor Brad was born in Minnesota, grew up in North Dakota, and now can’t believe he lives this far east. Brad spent nine years in agricultural banking before realizing he had a passion for preaching, for working with young people, for pastoral care, and for his wife, Pastor Caroline Satre. Since arriving in South Bend in 2017, Brad has found joy in CtK’s very supportive and caring community of faith.
