All Saints Church Rector Mike Kinman Resigns

All Saints Church Pasadena announced earlier this week the resignation of the Reverend Mike Kinman as the Rector. 

“We are grateful for his service and leadership over the past seven-plus years and as Mike transitions we wish him the very best in the future,” the church posted on its website. “The Rt. Reverend John Harvey Taylor, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles, will appoint an interim Priest-in-Charge until a new Rector is called to serve by the Parish.”

Kinman came to All Saints in 2016 after a unanimous vote by the church’s governing board to confirm Kinman’s nomination by the Rector Search Committee.

The committee engaged in an eighteen-month, nationwide search.

Kinman previously served as the Provost of Christ Church Cathedral in St. Louis, and served in the Diocese of Missouri for more than 25 years, from the time he arrived in 1986 to work toward his bachelor of journalism degree from the University of Missouri–Columbia.

After working as a sportswriter for a year after graduation, Kinman took over as full-time campus minister at Calvary in 1991. Beginning in 1993, he spent three years at Berkeley Divinity School at Yale University. After graduating from seminary, he was ordained deacon in 1996 in a service at Christ Church Cathedral.

Kinman began work as curate and then associate priest at the Church of St. Michael and St. George in Clayton, MO. He was ordained priest in 1997 and helped start a campus ministry with students from nearby Washington University in St. Louis. 

That ministry took on a life of its own, and in 1999, Mike moved into campus ministry full time, working as an Episcopal Campus Missioner for Washington University and serving on the Bishop’s staff as Diocesan Campus Ministry Coordinator.

In 2002, Kinman took six weeks’ sabbatical and went to live and work with the Anglican Church and an NGO in Ghana; later, he went to Lui, Sudan. Kinman became involved in a national Episcopal movement to reorient the church toward seeking and serving Christ through ending extreme poverty, using the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). 

That movement would become Episcopalians for Global Reconciliation (EGR), which in 2006 called Kinman to be its first executive director. During his three years as EGR’s executive director, it grew in size and scope throughout the church.
