Prison Fellowship International Announces Leadership Transitions

Ron Nikkel to Shift to President Emeritus as Executive VP Timothy Khoo Assumes Presidency Role
WASHINGTON, June 25, 2013 – Prison Fellowship International (PFI), the world’s largest prison ministry with 127 member countries, today announced an executive leadership transition following a positive 31 years of ministry growth under President Ron Nikkel. Nikkel, who has led PFI since 1982 when the organization had only five member countries, will transition from the role of President to a President Emeritus position. The PFI Board of Directors has unanimously chosen Timothy Khoo, a long-time member of its leadership team praised for his passion and vision, to serve as the new President and CEO. “I am grateful for Ron’s dedicated and strategic leadership over the last 31 years, which can be characterized by growth and success,” Khoo said. “The scope of PFI’s mission is enormous, as there are still areas of the world where children of prisoners are neglected, prison conditions are deplorable and individuals have not had the love of Christ shared with them.
