November 16, 2017

ECF is saying goodbye to two staff members from the Leadership and External Affairs team this month – Miguel Escobar and Ronald Byrd.

Miguel has accepted the position of Director of Anglican Studies at Episcopal Divinity School at Union Theological Seminary (EDS@Union). In this role, Miguel will be returning to his alma mater of Union Theological Seminary to join with EDS dean Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas to envision a seminary for forming social justice leaders and dismantlers of racism in the Episcopal Church.

Ron has been named the Episcopal Church Missioner for Black Ministries, a member of the Presiding Bishop’s staff. In his new position, Ron will work to build and strengthen Black Episcopal communities around the country.

On their departure, Donald Romanik, President of ECF said, “Both Miguel and Ron have helped to enhance the scope and breadth of ECF especially in the area of leadership development throughout the Church. I thank them for their significant contributions and accomplishments and am so pleased that they will continue this critical work in their new settings. We will miss them but look forward to new opportunities for collaboration and partnership with their respective organizations.”
