Karsten Sween 

County Director- for the High Desert and the Inland Empire

FCA changed my life in college at the University of Wyoming. FCA grew me in my faith and FCA trained me to go make disciples. I have seen FCA impact thousands of lives since 2010 when I came on staff. In 2017, God called me to California from Colorado to serve as the County Director for the Inland Empire. 

 My heart is to see thousands of coaches and athletes impacted for Christ. In order to see this accomplished we need more staff.  

Staff train leaders to go make disciples of Jesus Christ. We need staff so we can minister to and through coaches and athletes to see our communities transformed into the image of God. This effort glorifies God, and nothing brings me more joy than glorifying my Father in Heaven. Another area that brings God glory is loving my wife and loving my kids. Here's a little bit about them. 

My wife and i have been married for over 11 years and we have 3 children. They are amazing kids! They are starting full time school and in 2017 they started to experience FCA through summer Power Camps. God is so good and we look forward to serving him here in California, our HOME STATE.

Ben Mulder

Area Representative- Redlands and Yucaipa 

Ben and Becky Mulder

Ben has served through FCA in the Inland Empire since October of 2004. The Lord opened many doors to ministry since then and it has taken him far beyond the borders of the Inland Empire to include the countries of South Asia. Recently the focus of ministry has changed from covering all the Inland Empire and High Desert to a much narrower focus on the communities of Redlands and Yucaipa.

Ben and Becky will be celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary in December and they are very proud of each of the children and grandchildren God has given them but also hope for many more!

Ben oversees ministry at 4 high schools in Redlands and 1 in Yucaipa as well as on the campus of the University of Redlands. Other areas of ministry include ministry to coaches, 3 Dimensional Coaching, and development of a Character Coaches Initiative for the Inland Empire.
