The Board of Directors of Crossroads Community Ministries is pleased to announce the selection of Tony Johns as its next Executive Director. Currently Chief Operating Officer of City of Refuge, Johns takes up his duties with Crossroads Community Ministries on July 1st.
“We are simply thrilled with this appointment,” noted Crossroads Board Chair Wayne Vason, senior counsel with Troutman Sanders. “Over the past 16 years,” continued Vason, “Stan Dawson and his team built a gratifying reputation for combining compassion, accountability and dignity in service to the homeless among us. Tony Johns’s record with one of our key partners, the City of Refuge, along with his lifelong pattern of service to others have prepared him superbly for this opportunity.”
Noted Johns, “I have experienced first-hand the impact of Crossroads’ work with some of the most vulnerable people in our community. I am humbled by the board’s vote of confidence and look forward to working with the committed staff and volunteers as together we collaborate with others in service to people in need.”
