Global missions’ leader, Floyd Lee McClung Jr. dies


Founder of All Nations International, Floyd Lee McClung, Jr., has passed on. He died at the age of 75 at Cape Town, South Africa on May 29 according to Christian Post. McClung, Jr. was a bestselling author, global missions’ leader, and international speaker. Since 2016, he had been battling with a rare bacterial infection. This made him to be hospitalized and he could not talk for more than five years.

His wife, Sally, commented on his death saying, ‘’My gentle giant Floyd went to be with his beloved Jesus. I'm glad he is no longer suffering. I'll see him again some day!"

McClung was born in California. However, as a youth he moved with his family across the country. He settled back on the West Coast and attended college at Southern California College (now Vanguard University) in Costa Mesa. He graduated with a degree in New Testament Studies in 1967. 

Afterwards, he traveled across the United States speaking at churches and college campuses. This was in a bid to recruit young individuals for summer outreaches to the West Indies. As a young couple in the early 1970s, Floyd and Sally headed a traveling outreach group and were consistent with engaging students on university campuses around the world.

In their condolence messages, YWAM co-founders Loren and Darlene Cunningham said, "Floyd McClung was a vital foundational leader, serving for many years in YWAM. He pioneered works in Afghanistan, India, Nepal, the Netherlands, California, Colorado, and other locations. 

"His life, his teaching, his books, his leadership, and his Godly influence deeply impacted YWAM. He has so much lasting fruit – both inside YWAM and among those who came to Jesus through the initiatives he led. Only eternity will reveal the depth and breadth of his legacy."
