An Important Announcement from our Board of Directors

Dear Ministry Partner, 

With great sadness, the Board of Directors of Escape Ministries wants to share with you that Todd Krygsheld will be resigning his position as the Executive Director of Escape Ministries effective September 16, 2022. Todd has done a great job representing Escape Ministries over the past 18 months, but after careful reflection, Todd desires his work to be on a more one on one nature with youth, rather than an administrative role. We praise God for Todd and the work that he is doing at Escape, and we wish him the best as he transitions to his next calling. 

The Board has initiated a search for our next Executive Director. Please see our website for the job description and the job posting and contact if you have interest in the position. 

Pastor Todd shares the following ……

Escape Board,

It is an honor and privilege serving Escape Ministries as Executive Director.  I knew that stepping into this role would be different than roles I have held in the past.  I have been challenged and have grown in this role as a leader.  Together we have done hard work in building Escape’s presence and trust in the community, reengaging past stakeholders and bringing in new stakeholders.  However, I miss (more than I thought I would) the direct involvement in hands on ministry that my roles in the past have involved.  This has been a difficult decision and with much prayer and seeking counsel, I have come to a place of peace.  I have decided to step down as the Executive Director of Escape.  I plan on transitioning in a way that prepares Escape for the next Executive Director and for a successful annual fundraising banquet.  I will conclude my responsibilities on September 16, 2022.  I love the ministry Escape has done in our community and will continue to support the ministry and encourage others to support it as well.  Thank you for this opportunity to serve Escape in this capacity.  I am confident that God will continue to bless the work of Escape.

Escape Board of Directors response: Thank you all for your continued support of Escape.  Our staff and volunteers are doing great work with our youth, and we see God’s continued blessing on this work and your support in invaluable.
