President, CEO, and General Counsel |
Michael P. Farris is president, CEO, and general counsel of Alliance Defending Freedom. He brings to the role wide recognition for his successful work on both the national and international stage.
Alan Sears served as founder of Alliance Defending Freedom, building on his experience as longtime leader of the organization to strengthen alliances, forge new relationships, and develop ADF resources.
Alliance Defending Freedom was created by a group of visionary Christian leaders with a mission to reverse the growing threat to religious freedom. The great work of our founders continues through our allies and attorneys worldwide.
Tom Minnery is president emeritus of Family Policy Alliance (formerly CitizenLink), a public policy affiliate of Focus on the Family, and former senior vice president of Government and Public Policy for Focus on the Family.
A founding member of the ADF Board of Directors and former chairman of the board, his interest in ADF was most influenced by what he believes is the need to reclaim the court system for Christian moral principles.
Minnery is a former senior editor of Christianity Today magazine and Capitol Hill correspondent for Gannett News Service. His service to other boards, non-profit organizations, and the local community includes Regent University School of Government Board of Visitors and local political campaigns. He has been a church elder for many years and the recipient of several recognition awards from local civic and church groups.
Minnery and his family reside in Columbus, Ohio. He is a graduate of Ohio University, B.A. Journalism, and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, M.A. Religion.
Our Board brings skill and diversity to the work of Alliance Defending Freedom. These faithful leaders serve on a volunteer basis.
