The Kincaid Family
The Kincaids have been in the ministry (full-time for the most part) since 1991. From 1991-2003 we were missionaries in three different locations: Haiti, France, and Uganda, East Africa. During their years of mission work in these fields, God always seemed to move them toward training leaders and laying foundations for new works. In 2003, the Kincaids returned to the U.S. to accept the call to the pastorate of a new church in Proctorville, Ohio — Sanctuary of Grace.
Their eleven years leading a local assembly taught them much. Todd served 7 years as senior pastor and then as one of the four elders as the church transitioned to a new leadership model. They were used of the Lord to help lay the foundation for this new local assembly.
While leading the church in Ohio, the Kincaids remained very actively involved in missions. They led numerous short-term teams to places like Uganda, Cuba, Nepal, and North Cyprus and worked to help spearhead a new, indigenous work in India (Ethne Bible Center). They also pioneered the birthing of a new mission network, Ends of the Earth Network, which is already making an impact among the nations for the Kingdom.
Since April 2014, the Kincaid family has been ministering in Rome, Italy. Their main focus is working with migrants and refugees; they co-manage a migrant center with other missionaries, where they offer language lessons and other services in order to build relationships for the sake of the gospel with people from many different countries.
The work is growing and they are continually looking for effective ways to minister to those who have had little or no exposure to the gospel. Through the immigrant work in Rome, there is potential to reach a great number of unreached people groups from south Asia, the Middle East, North and West Africa, etc.
The Kincaids have three children—one of whom, Madison, 13, lives with them in Rome. The older two --Michael, preparing for full-time missions; and Adam, 18, currently preparing for University in the fall of 2019--are living in the USA.
Christie and Todd both received their education from Marshall University (Christie, Bachelor in Music Education; Todd, Bachelor work) and Luther Rice University & Seminary (Christie, Master in Counseling; Todd, Bachelor in Biblical Studies and Master of Divinity).
We have a team of believers working to make disciples and found new churches throughout India, but due to increasing persecution in the areas where are people work, we are not at liberty to share details here. Inquiries concerning any details about our work in India may be made at .
In addition to being involved personally in the work in both India and Italy, Laddie Smith serves in the United States as the Ends of the Earth Network (EE) liason. His role is mutli-faceted, including administration, shepherding and counseling ministry to those on the field, and point of contact stateside for all the various endeavors of EE throughout the world.
Laddie and his wife, Debi, live in Proctorville, Ohio and are members of Sanctuary of Grace Church.
