Don Meredith

Executive Vice President

Don Meredith is Founder and President of Christian Family Life, Inc. and Executive Vice President of Joe Gibbs Racing, Inc.. When he and his wife Sally married in 1967 both were on the staff of Campus Crusade for Christ. With a group of five other couples they taught marriage seminars across the U.S. beginning in 1971, eventually launching the FamilyLife Ministry in 1976 with Dennis and Barbara Rainey. The core principles found in the Meredith’s book, Two Becoming One, are still taught at the FamilyLife “Weekend to Remember” conferences and are also available in small group study. Most recently pastors in Cuba have embraced these marriage concepts and the ministry is spreading rapidly.

In 1977 Don, with a few others, launched the Fellowship Bible Churches, first in Dallas, then in Little Rock. From that beginning Don has gone on to help start six more churches with four in Virginia and two in North Carolina.

In the early 1980′s Don relocated to Washington, D.C. to work with congressional couples in the area of marriage and bible studies. While there, Joe Gibbs, the head coach of the NFL Washington Redskins, asked Don to help him start a youth home for at-risk boys from the D.C. area called Youth for Tomorrow. It is a 24/7 residential facility with on-site school located on 200 acres and still flourishes today. Since then, Joe and Don have worked side by side in ministry, racing and other business ventures including the launch of a successful NASCAR team.

In 1991 Joe asked Don to help him launch Joe Gibbs Racing which now employs more than 450 people and fields five cars in the Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series. Game Plan for Life is a project Joe and Don have been dreaming about pursuing since Joe’s second stint as the head coach of the Washington Redskins.

Don and Sally have been married for 46 years, reside in Huntersville, NC and have four children with four great spouses by their sides and ten grandchildren, five boys and five girls.

Thank-YOU so much for sending GAME PLAN FOR LIFE, by Coach Joe Gibbs, and for autographing this blessing! Whenever you, or Joe and Pat are in Dover, our door is open and Frau Iris (from Dusseldorf) makes a wonderful pork sirloin lunch / dinner! We are 13 miles away from the Monster Mile in Dover (Felton)… I retire soon with the Delaware Dept of Corrections and hopefully we’ll move on to North Myrtle Beach! Karsten receives his Biblical Masters from RTS in Charlotte in May! – Moose
