Kate Rae Davis, MDiv

Kate Rae Davis brings a collaborative approach to her role working with Christian leaders to restore their inner resilience and lead from healed wounds. Her position allows her to gather with experts from a variety of fields and shape discussions around challenges facing leaders in a complex cultural moment and discern how each might uniquely join in God’s work in the world.

Kate joined The Seattle School as a Master of Divinity student in 2011 with a background in English and Spanish language and literature and an emphasis on Marginality & Difference. Over the years as a student and staff member, Kate has been a part of the Library, Financial Aid, Human Resources, and Academic departments. She is currently pursuing an Education Doctorate in Leadership & Innovation from New York University.

Passionate about the church in its many forms, Kate is an award-winning preacher with experience in a post-evangelical megachurch and multiple mainline parishes.

Kate is a quiet extravert, a constant prayer, a martial art practitioner, a ravenous reader, and an alliteration aficionado. She lives with her husband Keller and dog Magic. Together they regularly hike, play tabletop games, and travel throughout Cascadia and, when they have the opportunity, around the globe. Favorite destinations so far have been Granada, Spain; Istanbul, Turkey; the Isle of Skye, Scotland; and Lake Crescent, WA.

For those of us who work here, designing and developing trainings is our service to God and neighbor. We come alongside amazing people with deep, pastoral hearts and beautiful, hopeful desires for their communities. We get to be in conversation with people about how they understand God’s presence in their lives and communities, about the church that is still in formation, about the beauty and challenges of their lives—I don’t just learn from them, I’m transformed by these relationships.
