Crystal serves as the Education Director, heading up the instructing and logistics that go into the training aspect of the Leadership Academy Program. Crystal joined our staff team after completing all four levels of the program and spending a year teaching English in Taiwan with another organization.
“My name is Crystal Collins and I am from the state of Nebraska. I enjoy reading, playing the piano and guitar, volleyball, and soccer. As the oldest of nine children, I have always been the first to try new things. I am blessed to have a family who supports me in whatever opportunities God calls me to. In 2013 I came to In The Gap because I had worked with kids in the past and love teaching. I came looking for something to do with my life and left inspired to impact the next generation for Christ. I learned that I can only do so much with my life but if I invest in others, inspiring them to follow Christ, my impact on the world will be greater than I will ever know.
My passion is to see young people surrender their lives completely to Christ and do His will no matter the cost. I also enjoy passing on what I have learned to help equip others to effectively share the Gospel.
A verse that stood out to me as I was preparing to join the staff team was 1 Corinthians 15:34 ‘Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God:’ I am thankful to God for the opportunity to work with such a quality organization that has woken up to the fact that there are many, even in America, that have no knowledge of God and seeks to change that.”Crystal
