KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA, www.fca.org) is inducting four partners and supporters of the world’s largest international sports ministry into its Hall of Champions (HOC) this year.
Among the four inductees is Chang-won Kim, who has been an FCA sponsor, ministry volunteer, FCA Sports Camp volunteer, and prayer warrior for FCA Korea since its inception over ten years ago.
“Chang-won Kim has not only made contributions to the sports he loves, but also to the communities and teams to which he is committed,” said FCA President and CEO Shane Williamson. “We are immensely grateful for his service to Jesus Christ through FCA, as we welcome him to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes’ Hall of Champions Class of 2021.”
Since FCA Korea was established over ten years ago, Kim has been spreading his positive influence and love of the Gospel. A specialist in rehabilitation medicine, Kim has provided support by sending medical staff to FCA events, as well as participated in FCA sports camps and 3D coach seminars and various events for 10 years.
Since 2017, he has served two consecutive terms as the Chairman of FCA Korea and was awarded TLA Captain of FCA Korea in 2019 and 2020.
“Chang-won shows a consistent dedication to Jesus Christ and the Word of God, displaying FCA’s core values of excellence, integrity, teamwork and service. He does his best to glorify God in all things, whether it’s at home with his family, through work or serving His local church,” wrote one nominator.
Kim joins Bob Williams, Gary Williamson, and Diana Myers as inductees of FCA’s 2021 Hall of Champions. They have worked tirelessly to further the FCA vision: to see the world transformed by Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes. FCA Hall of Champions honorees over the years have consisted of a mix of coaches, athletes and volunteers, including sports greats such as Tony Dungy, Tom Landry, Tom Osborne and Roger Staubach, to name a few.
The Fellowship of Christian Athletes Hall of Champions was established in 1991. With the new 2021 class, there are now 126 godly coaches and athletes plus board members and volunteers who have received this special tribute. They make up a group of FCA servant-leaders who have faithfully served Christ through the avenue of FCA. Their commitment to the Lord’s work has impacted many millions over the years. They are a body of teammates in Christ who have demonstrated a consistent commitment to the support of FCA, nominated by staff and board members and elected by a selection committee.
