About Dan Barker

Director of Freedom From Religion Foundation

Dan Barker is co-president of the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) and co-host of Freethought Radio. After 19 years as an evangelical minister, Dan “saw the light” and announced his atheism in 1984. His first public appearance as an atheist was on Oprah Winfrey’s “AM Chicago.” Since that time he has traveled extensively, lecturing and performing on college campuses, and participating in more than 90 public debates defending atheism. A former composer of Christian songs and musicals (for which he still receives royalties), Dan is now a jazz pianist and writer of freethought music, contributing editor of Freethought Today and author of numerous books. He regularly travels the country and the world giving lectures, performing concerts, and participating in debates with theists, many at college and university campuses. Dan has 5 children, 7 grandchildren, and lives with his wife (and co-president) Annie Laurie Gaylor in Madison, Wisconsin.
