Doors Opened

During Patrick Kangrga’s year with ESCMD 2012-13 he interned with Epiphany Episcopal Church of Timonium, MD as a youth worker both within the congregation and outside making neighborhood connections. With some other positions along the way, now he is the Associate for Youth Ministries with Trinity Church in Menlo Park California. Here’s what Patrick has to say about his time with ESC: “ESCMD opened doors for me that I could never imagine being unlocked or even existing. Though that year was one of the hardest/ most challenging time of my short life, several years out now I can see how God was shaping me into,calling me to be the human I am right now. I wouldn’t be this person, I wouldn’t have the life-giving job and ministry I have, I wouldn’t have met the inspiring people I’ve met or seen the amazing places I’ve seen without the kick-start that ESCMD provided. I am so grateful.”
