He is coauthor with Lester Ruth of Creative Preaching on the Sacraments and with Dennis L. Bushkofsky of The Christian Life: Holy Baptism and Life Passages.

Dr. Satterlee serves as editor of Preaching Helps for Currents in Theology and Mission and frequently contributes to both scholarly and ecclesiastical journals. Satterlee’s scholarly interests include the relationship of preaching and areas of congregational life and mission, including liturgy, spirituality, mission, stewardship and leadership. He also studies patristic preaching, most notably that of Ambrose of Milan, and the worship of the early church. Satterlee is a member of the North American Academy of Liturgy, Societas Liturgica, and the Academy of Homiletics.
Ordained in 1987, Satterlee served congregations in Upstate New York and Michigan before being called to LSTC. He regularly leads continuing education events throughout the church. Firmly grounded in parish ministry, Pastor Satterlee serves as consulting pastor of St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church, Glenwood, Illinois and preaches regularly in congregations of the ELCA.
