Exodos Ministry Team
Tom Crowson is the Director of Exodos Ministries. Tom served as a public school teacher and coach for twenty years. After four back surgeries and a decade long struggle with doctor prescribed narcotics, Tom realized he was in bondage to pain killers. As a Christian, Tom knew that only Christ can free the captive and he spent months in faith-based recovery in Mississippi. While away Tom felt the call of the Lord to return to his hometown and coach men and their families to freedom in Christ through opening Exodos Ministries. Now, Tom, his wife Kyra and their four sons have the privilege to love other families through the wilderness of addiction to the foot of the cross where Christ brings freedom to the captive.

Kyra Crowson is our Exodos Families ministry leader. She is also a women’s teacher and speaker who is passionate about “inspiring ladies to fall in love with Christ by savoring His love letter to them”. Kyra challenges women to open their hearts and “snuggle into Jesus because romance with Him is beyond a girl’s wildest imagination”.
Kyra testifies that she can gladly say with Joseph of the Old Testament that what Satan, “intended (to use) to harm (us), God intended for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives”. Kyra believes that “when a man is enslaved to chemical addiction, the whole family lives in bondage and needs the healing and freedom that only Christ can give.
