Chatelaine-Samsen, Katherine and Christopher

Katie is the Pastor of Mission and Outreach at First Trinity and St. Matthew’s Lutheran Churches in Washington, DC. She graduated from St. Olaf College, where she studied Political Science and Religion, and received her M.Div. from Princeton Theological Seminary. A calling to dwell at the intersection of faith and public life led Katie to build a career in fund development for faith-based advocacy nonprofits in Washington, DC, including Lutheran Volunteer Corps, Sojourners, and the Georgetown Ministry Center. God’s even more persistent call to pastoral ministry led her to serve in two downtown DC congregations, where she seeks to develop their collaborative partnership in mission and outreach to their neighborhoods.

Chris is the Associate Pastor for Mission and Young Adults at Georgetown Presbyterian Church in Washington, DC. He graduated from Wesleyan University in CT and Princeton Theological Seminary. He attempts to lead the powerful to encounter the marginalized in the nation’s capital, while also fostering community in a city that can be deeply isolating. He also works for Wesley Theological Seminary, mentoring M.Div. candidates in intentional community and vocational discernment.
