From Insurance to Chaplain, Following God's Calling

Crystall Williams-Bonner was in the insurance business for more than 20 years when she realized that she was destined for a different calling. Her journey to becoming a chaplain is not only inspiring but also a testimony to how God can work in your life.

She decided she was better suited to working for a nonprofit organization and took a position as a sales representative for Nebraska Lutheran Outdoor Ministries in Ashland. It’s the camping conference and retreat ministry of the Nebraska Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America — a place set apart for people of all ages to grow in Christ.

"I would enter the different Lutheran churches as a salesperson and had noticeable experiences. The Holy Spirit in me would jump for joy, but when I left the churches my spirit felt weak. I knew that God was speaking to me,” Bonner said.

Williams-Bonner journey brought her to Methodist where she works as a chaplain.
