Don Mauldin, Area Director


Don Mauldin has served in different staff member roles for FCA for the past 12 years. He currently manages North Central Florida staff members while doing ministry in 6 counties.  His focus is to serve both the universities and middle / high schools in the area. 

He serves his staff members by raising funds and speaking at schools when he can. 

"I love kids and I want them to know God," Don said. "I want to motivate, inspire and teach the truth of God's word." 

Don sends kids to FCA camps each year and has a passion to see that work continue. His favorite part about being on staff with FCA is sharing God with people who don't know Him. 

"It's more than sharing God, but sharing the truth of the Bible!" Don said.
