Rev. Bohannon was ordained an elder in 1955. During his ministry he served the Brookwood Ct and the Tuscaloosa Ct. He served as a military chaplain with the United States Army Reserve for 32 years. He also served as Chaplain for the University of Alabama in Birmingham Hospitals for 25 years during which time the Pastoral Care Department grew to become an integral part of patient care at UAB. He retired in 1993.
Bishop Will Willimon says, “We are grateful for the life and ministry of Kenneth L. Bohannon. He served our Conference through the important role of a chaplain – serving both with the military and UAB Hospital. His ministry of growing pastoral care at UAB allowed many lives to be touched in the name of Jesus Christ.”
