About the Preacher and Performer
Rev. Sam Kinsman has journeyed far from his childhood in rural California. From a childhood spent preaching and singing through his studies in an MFA Acting program to his time at Union Theological Seminary, the Spirit molds and guides him to serve as Christ would. As he rediscovered his childhood call to Ministry, opportunities such as hospice Chaplaincy, camp counseling for LGBTQ+ youth, and large-scale food justice programming in Manhattan sharpened his senses to the work of supporting and liberating in faith-based justice. His Ministry exists at the apex of theatre-making, discerning the Spirit’s cry, and profound geekiness. Following his tenure as the Associate Minister of Children, Families and Justice at West End Collegiate Church, he moved closer to family in the Finger Lakes region of New York with his partner Julian. He is currently a campus Chaplain at both the University of Rochester and the Rochester Institute of Technology as he is called to empower and interrogate what the beloved Church might become for Gen Z and beyond.
