United Church Homes CEO Named United Seminary’s Distinguished Alum
The Rev. Kenneth Daniel, president and CEO of United Church Homes, Inc., was honored on May 19 as the recipient of the 2016 Distinguished Alum Award at UCC-related United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities.
Daniel, who graduated from United in 1981, has served in local congregations, seminary settings, retirement community administration and has acted in key leadership roles for several historic UCC health and educational institutions. Currently, he is vice chair of the Council for Health and Human Service Ministries’ board of directors.
Daniel was nominated for the United honor by the Rev. Karen Smith Sellers, retired UCC Minnesota Conference Minister. In a letter of support, the Rev. Shari Prestemon, Minnesota Conference Minister and United trustee, wrote:
“Whether Ken is providing leadership to a health and human service organization, serving in a seminary setting, or acting as pastor to a local congregation, Ken’s integrity of faith and service-oriented approach is always abundantly clear. While he knows and understands what it takes to successfully manage an organization from an administrative standpoint, he never loses sight of what is, for him, always at the center: purposeful ministry and abiding faith.”
Since 2011, Daniel has served at the helm of United Church Homes, a national non-profit provider of housing and health services, ranging from skilled nursing and rehab, to retirement communities and affordable housing for seniors. During his tenure, he has led a complete reorganization and expansion of the internal business functions, resulting in high quality levels of clinical health care, staff satisfaction, marketing and sales, financial performance, and corporate communications.
United Church Homes has 68 communities located across the United States.
