What does CARE look like in leadership. This week you’ll get a sense of a leader with CARE as we chat with Dan Britton, the Chief Field Officer for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
Britton has been on staff since 1990, serving first as field staff in Northern Virginia for 13 years before moving to Kansas City to join the executive leadership team.
As Chief Field Officer, Britton travels extensively around the world to work with thousands of leaders in more than 100 countries who are passionate about and called to sports ministry.
Britton played professional lacrosse with the Baltimore Thunder, earning a spot on the All-Star team, and he was nominated by his teammates for both the Service and Unsung Hero awards. He has co-authored seven books, including: “One Word,” and the “One Word Journal,” which came out the day we recorded this interview. (In fact, we’ve twisted Dan’s arm to join us again in December to talk about “One Word” as we head into 2023.)
Britton is a frequent speaker for companies, nonprofits, sports teams, schools and churches. He has appeared on national outlets like CBS News and FOX News. He still plays and coaches lacrosse, and he enjoys running marathons—he’s finished the Boston Marathon twice. Dan and his wife Dawn have three married children.
Additionally, Britton led the efforts to keep 29 FCA leaders and their families from Ukraine in the United States, including the Kravtsovs, the family featured in our most recent C-10 Conversation.
