WELEETKA, Okla. – August 25, 2017 – The award-winning Oklahoma-based group the Williamsons have been affiliated with The Gospel Station radio network based in Ada, Oklahoma for many years. Recently, the network took up a cause when the Americans For the Separation of Church and State took issue with the cross on the roof of a chapel located on the grounds of East Central University in Ada. They demanded that the university remove the cross and remove all religious books as well as the altar from the chapel. The chapel was built in 1957 using private funds and has been open to people of all faiths to use for prayer and reflection.
Randall Christy, president of the network, produced a brief video at the University about the group’s demands. It has been viewed over 6 million times!
The University had already began removing items from the chapel and had planned for a crane to remove the cross. However, because of the great public outcry, due in part to the success of the video, Oklahoma State legislators contacted East Central and asked them to cease with the removal of items at the chapel. The altar and the books have been returned it to the chapel! Oklahoma State Attorney General Michael Hunter has stated that if this misguided organization should proceed with the lawsuit the state of Oklahoma would take the case and defend the right of the cross to remain on the chapel which could very well end at our nation’s Supreme Court.
Donnie of the Williamsons stated, “We are so glad to be a part of The Gospel Station and it’s related ministries such as the World Mission Team with whom we have literally been around the world. This cause is just one of the many reasons why we are honored to help promote this video and stand for the cross!”

About The Williamson
The Williamsons began sharing the Gospel through music in 1998 as The Homesteaders Quartet. The dream of Donnie Williamson was to form a group to sing classic Gospel music on a limited basis. What he wanted to do never occurred. From the group’s onset their demand was overwhelming. Soon they were performing more than 100 dates a year. For the past several years The Williamsons have been in full time Christian ministry and entertainment and have traveled across the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Their music has been in national charts and were they honored to be nominated for Breakthrough Artist and Favorite Group awards at the Absolutely Gospel Fan Awards. Absolutely Gospel also named them as one of the Top Ten Groups to Watch, as well as in the Top Ten for Best New Mixed Group in the Singing News Fan Awards.
Their high energy musical style appeals to people of all ages. The versatility of The Williamsons is evident through the wide variety of musical styles they perform. There is always something for everyone. The marketing of their performances targets families and not just fans of any particular type of music. Spending an evening with The Williamsons is sure to be one that will lift you up, bless you, and entertain you all at the same time. Their primary desire is to share the Gospel in such a way that those in attendance who do not know Jesus Christ will come to know him before the program is over.
