NFL player Khari Willis is stepping away from the football field to pursue a career in ministry.

When God is trying to tell you something, it’s best that you listen. That’s the situation for 26-year-old Khari Willis, who has suddenly quit his safety position after with the Indianapolis Colts “much prayer and deliberation” to go into the industry of ministry.

The player, who’s been in the NFL for three seasons, announced the news in an Instagram post on Wednesday.

“I have elected to officially retire from the NFL as I endeavor to devote the remainder of my life to the further advancement of the Gospel of Jesus Christ,” said Willis in his post. “I thank all of my family, friends and those who have supported me on this journey thus far and I look forward to your continued support through the next phase of my life.”

He went on to say that he is “humbled and excited to pursue the holy call that God has for [his] life which brings me much joy and purpose.”

“I’ve built lifelong relationships with numerous teammates, coaches and support staff that have impacted me greatly,” he continued. “The lessons that I’ve learned in this phase of my life will be valuable for me in my next chapter.”

One of those relationships is with the Colts’ head coach, who gave Willis his blessings for his new journey.

“We’re thankful and appreciative of Khari’s contributions to the Colts both on and off the field over the last three seasons,” Colts said Colts head coach Frank Reich. “Khari’s character, leadership, and professionalism will be missed in our locker room as will his play on Sundays.”
