THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Shane Williamson is the president and CEO for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
A native of Loris, S.C., Williamson became a Christ-follower while attending an FCA camp in Black Mountain, N.C., in 1986. Following that life-changing experience, his high school head football coach, Tim Renfrow, discipled him and became his encourager, mentor and role model. This enduring impact of a coach influenced Williamson to make his own commitment to the power of transformational coaching in the world of sports.
Williamson attended Wofford College (Spartanburg, S.C.), earning a bachelor’s in biology while playing football for coach Mike Ayers. He remained active in the school’s FCA Huddle throughout his years, including serving as an officer. Williamson then attended Converse College (also in Spartanburg, S.C.), earning a master’s degree in secondary education.
Bringing understanding and experience as a coach and athlete, Williamson joined the FCA movement as a staff member in 2002 as the Upstate South Carolina director. He then became the multi-area director for Metro Atlanta FCA from 2005-2011. His roles in FCA continued to expand as he went on to serve as the vice president of field ministry for the Carolinas from 2012-2014, followed by leading all of FCA’s U.S. field ministry as the executive director from 2014-2016. He entered his president/CEO role on Jan. 1, 2017.
Today on the podcast, we talk to Williamson about his journey to Christ, the role FCA has played in his life since he was a young boy, the keys to being a great leader, and why sports is such a great space to share the Gospel.
