Finding Faith in an NFL Locker Room

On and off the field with Chicago Bears team chaplain Jonathan Wilkins (MBA 2007)


Reverend Jonathan Wilkins got a call that the NFL’s Chicago Bears were looking for a part-time chaplain. He was brought in to address a group of rookie players, and talked about low period in his life and how he used his faith to face adversity. A few months later, he was officially named team chaplain. In this episode of Skydeck, the Bulletin’s associate editor Julia Hanna talks to Wilkins about the role of faith in the locker room—and how the challenges of a professional football player aren’t so different from our own.
