Pastor Nate loves working with people and connecting them with God. In ministry some of his passions include humor and a good joke. He is energized by getting to know people, and by helping others. No two days are the same in ministry and that is why Pastor Nate loves being a pastor. In his free time he loves to garden or do anything outdoors, catching a show at the PAC, and if there is any question, yes he loves the Packers!
Pastor Nate is a homegrown native of east central Wisconsin, north of Waupaca. Pastor Nate graduated from Wartburg Theological Seminary, Dubuque, IA. Prior to seminary, he worked for Westinghouse as a contractor for the Department of Energy in Aiken, SC. Pastor Nate and his wife have two daughters.

Storyteller, teacher, untidy creative catalyst are just a few of the hats Pastor Dara wears at CtK. She loves exploring new ways of sharing the story of God's love for all people, whether that's through preaching, incorporating art in worship, or engaging communities in play. Food is Pastor Dara's love language, so when not at church she can often be found in the kitchen cooking a meal for her family and friends.
Pastor Dara grew up in the Fox Valley area, went to Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, then spent a handful of years as a camp director at a Lutheran bible camp in north-central Wisconsin. While in earning her Mdiv through Wartburg Theological Seminary, she also taught 3k and 4k in Oshkosh.
