Blake and Lena Satterlee
Blake and Lena were both a part of Antioch in Waco, TX while in college where their lives were radically transformed by Jesus and by being a part of a local church during those years. God used that season to give them a passion to see other people experience the same kind of transformation they had, and they were trained and sent out as part of a church planting team to start Antioch Baton Rouge (and got married along the way). Blake is originally from the Northshore, so he jumped at the opportunity to get back to Southern Louisiana.
They spent seven years in Baton Rouge serving as the college pastors and learning how to lead a healthy church. During that time, God began to give them a heart for New Orleans and it became clear they were to be sent out to plant Antioch New Orleans!
They’ve been married 9 years and have three little girls, Nora (7), Evie (5) and Ella (3), and a baby boy, Banner!
