“God Removed the Veil From My Eyes”: Famous Porn Star-Turned-Pastor Now Lives for Jesus

It was in that same church where Crystal was saved by the power of Jesus that she met her husband, and she soon began co-pastoring a church plant with him in Fulton, New York.

The 34-year-old says she’s the first porn star-turned-pastor.

Today, she’s completely turned her life around as a dedicated member of her worship team, a Christian counselor, and a paralegal in upstate New York.

Though as a Christian, Crystal has encountered trials and has made her fair share of mistakes, she refuses to let that stop her from spreading her story to change the hearts and lives of others.

“I’m not perfect. I make mistakes,” she said in a recent interview with Fox News. “I’m going through a divorce and at times I don’t understand why, but I know everything happens for a reason… Your rearview mirror in your car is small for a reason and your windshield is much larger because the future is bigger than your past.”

Crystal’s friends Amy and William are just a couple of people whose lives have been transformed through her powerful testimony.

Amy was once a girl who the former porn star helped get into the adult film industry, but after Crystal helped her get out of porn, she became a devout Christian who is never looking back to her life of sin. William was also a man who Crystal befriended before they became believers. He was sent to prison for selling bath salts and will be released this year. After Crystal started sharing the gospel with him, William became “all about the Lord” and now helps out in the prison chapel.

The pastor shared with Fox News that one of the things she loves about her position in the Christian community is that people feel like they can come to her free of judgment because she can empathize with their dark past.

“Anybody feels that they can come to me, and that’s what I like about it,” said Crystal. “They can talk to me openly and not have to worry about me judging them. We all do wrong. Nobody’s perfect. It didn’t matter if you’ve been saved your whole life or you walk into my church with full-on tattoos. I accept them for who they are, not attack them.”

Crystal believes that difficulties and jaded pasts all serve a purpose in our walk with the Lord and will ultimately refine us [like] gold. She is also confident that our past does not define us, as our identity is secured by the sacrificial blood of Jesus.

“God will put you through things to make you stronger,” she encouraged. “You just can’t ever give up. You need to leave your past behind.”
