It is with a heavy heart that I announce the resignation of Timothy Brahm as Director of Training, which became effective on May 3rd, 2019. Tim feels that God is leading him somewhere else, and we wish him the very best. We temporarily delayed making this announcement more public (i.e. an email blast, Facebook post, etc.) to give Tim time to personally inform his supporters.
Having co-founded ERI with me, Tim did amazing and breakthrough things for the pro-life movement, and Tim was integral to the successes ERI shared. Tim is leaving ERI, but everyone agrees that his imprint won’t leave the organization. Tim should be proud of what he accomplished at ERI. He co-founded a great pro-life organization with some of the best pro-life writing and philosophical work in the entire movement, and none of that goes away just because he’s not working in the office. Even the ideas that Tim was still in process on with the rest of our Philosophy Team are things that will continue to be developed.
On behalf of myself, our board, and our staff, I wish Tim the very best in his new endeavors.
While Tim’s contributions will be missed, ERI will continue to be a strong organization for the future. From a desire to develop a strong team of philosophers several years ago, diversifying the group by hiring Rachel Crawford and Andrew Kaake are two of the best decisions we’ve made since we launched ERI. They are ridiculously smart and will continue to see problems and work on solutions in the same way we always have. If you love the philosophical work we do, none of that is going away. Rachel Crawford is taking over leadership of the Philosophy Team, and it’s been incredible to see her rise to the challenge.
I greatly look forward to seeing how God continues to work through this organization as we grow our staff and expand our projects. Our current focus is on completing the sidewalk counseling course, using our new video studio to expand the Equipped for Life Course and create great YouTube videos, and relaunch the Equipped for Life Podcast.
