FCA mourns the passing of its founder, Don McClanen, who died at the age of 91 on Feb. 16, 2016. His dedicated vision for a sports ministry that would touch the lives of coaches and athletes around the world propelled FCA to what it is today. And it began with a spark of passion, deeply rooted in McClanen’s heart.
Said Les Steckel, FCA President and CEO, “If there is ever a question about what God can do with a life totally surrendered, called and risking all to follow His vision, we can point to a young basketball coach from Oklahoma, who in 1954 saw the potential of athletes and coaches to share the gospel with the world. Sixty-two years later, that vision is alive and well through FCA, influencing lives for Christ across the globe—an amazing legacy. We praise God for the life of Don McClanen.”
