Ms. Dan Barker

Term:

Since November 2004

Profile:

Dan became a teenage evangelist at age 15. At 16 he was choir librarian for faith-healer Kathryn KuhlmanÕs Los Angeles appearances. He received a degree in Religion from Azusa Pacific University and was ordained to the ministry by the Standard Community Church, California, in 1975. (See ordination.) He served as associate pastor in three California churches: Arcadia FriendÕs Church (Quaker), Glengrove Assembly of God (Hacienda Heights), and Standard Christian Center, an independent Charismatic church loosely affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ tradition) in Standard, California. Dan was a Protestant missionary in Mexico for a total of two years. Dan preached for 19 years. He maintained an ongoing touring musical ministry, including eight years of full-time, cross-country evangelism. An accomplished pianist, record producer, arranger and songwriter, he worked with Christian music companies such as Manna Music and Word Music. For a few years, Dan wrote and produced the annual ÒMini MusicaleÓ for Gospel Light PublicationsÕ Vacation Bible School curriculum. For more than two decades, Dan was accompanist, arranger, and record producer for Manuel Bonilla, the leading Christian singer in the Spanish-speaking world. He accompanied on the piano such Christian personalities as Pat Boone, Jimmy Roberts (of the Lawrence Welk Show), and gospel songwriter Audrey Meier, and was a regular guest on Southern CaliforniaÕs ÒPraise The LordÓ TV show (Spanish). One of DanÕs Christian songs, ÒThere Is One,Ó was performed by Rev. Robert SchullerÕs television choir on the ÒHour of PowerÓ broadcast. To this day, he receives royalties from his popular childrenÕs Christian musicals, ÒMary Had a Little LambÓ (1977), and ÒHis Fleece Was White As SnowÓ (1978), both published by Manna Music and performed in many countries. Following five years of reading, Dan gradually outgrew his religious beliefs. ÒIf I had limited myself to Christian authors, IÕd still be a Christian today,Ó Dan says. ÒI just lost faith in faith.Ó He announced his atheism publicly in January, 1984. He tells his story in the books Losing Faith in Faith (1992) and Godless (2008). Dan was PR Director of the Freedom From Religion Foundation from 1987 to 2004. He was elected co-president of the Foundation with Annie Laurie Gaylor in 2004, with whom he is co-host of Freethought Radio, a national weekly talkshow on the Air America network. He is a contributing editor of Freethought Today and is involved with the FoundationÕs state/church lawsuits. He regularly travels the country and the world giving lectures, performing concerts, and participating in debates with theists, many at college and university campuses.
