Who we are...

Fr. Dan & Miki Kinkead


Fr. Dan & Miki are the founding couple who God called to 'plant" St. Francis Mission; here in St. Louis. They have been married for 15 "wonder-filled" years and have a rescued "chi-weenie" named - Izzi. They are also house-parents to a man named "Jamie" who, with many supports, works to live the most independent life possible.


As well as being called to ministry- Fr. Dan works full time in Case Management for adults and children with disabilities. He has worked in this field, for over 30 years and has always felt his calling was to people with "special needs" and the underprivileged in our society; the marginalized.


"Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do humble work" - Mother Teresa


Fr. Dan earned degrees in Psychology and Comparative Religion from Webster University here in St. Louis and traveled throughout Europe in high school and college as an exchange student, where he fell in love with Anglicanism, church liturgy and history. He continues his study, working towards his Masters in Theology.

 

Miki is an accomplished artist; when she makes time to "do art!" She has also worked for 25+ years as a retail manager in women's clothing and specialty retail.  She has experience as a peer counselor for The Center Women's Ministry in West St. Louis County.  Miki works full time in our home taking care of Jamie and part time at a women's clothing store.
