She has served on the Deacon Team since 2014, and joined the staff in 2018. Rachel and her husband Adam have been called to be foster parents and are passionate about entering into the messy chaos of loving children who are walking through trauma.

Kristen Flores

Kingdom Kids Elementary Coordinator

Kristen Flores came to Christ through Sunday School in her home state of New Jersey, and she is thrilled to now share the love of Jesus with kids from many different backgrounds here in St. Louis. In 2009, Kristen moved to St. Louis to pursue a masters degree in Religion and Culture at Covenant Seminary, however she did not expect to stay. She began working part-time with Children's Ministry at New City South in 2010, added Firm Foundation Tutoring to the mix in 2012, met her husband (Dominic) that same year, and now St. Louis is home (though she could do without St. Louis-style pizza). Kristen enjoys spending time with Dominic (mostly eating his cooking and laughing at their cat), traveling (she's lived in London and Uganda), reading (especially for book club), and acting (she's trying to make use of a rusty B.A. in Theatre).

Angela Finan

Kingdom Kids Children's Ministry Director

Angela has served on the staff of New City South since February of 2016, beginning as Nursery Director. She loves working with Kingdom Kids because of the honesty, intensity, and silliness with which they engage life. She enjoys their earnest observations and questions about God and the world around them, reminders to her that no one is too young for the Kingdom. As a mama of two beautiful Kingdom Kids, Angela spends her days reading story books, getting knock-down hugs, and hunting down the best St. Louis playgrounds. After bedtime, she enjoys reading (non-picture books) and talking to grown-ups, namely her husband, Casey. She references Isaiah 41:9-10 as a reminder that she is safe in the hand of the Almighty God.
