Dr. Roger Fankhauser was born in Monroe, WA, and now resides in Burleson, TX. He and his wife, Debbie, have been married more than 40 years and have three children (five, counting daughters-in-law) and seven grandchildren. Roger and Debbie also served as foster parents for four children. He graduated from Washington State University with a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering. After working as an engineer for 13 years, he attended Phoenix Seminary, where he received both a Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry degree. His research thesis, “Sexual Purity for Non-Sexually Addicted Christian Men,” confirmed both the need to help Christian men experience purity as well as the general scarcity of resources to help men. He has led workshops and group studies on sexual purity.
Roger presently serves as the Senior Pastor of Burleson (TX) Bible Church and is the President of the Free Grace Alliance. He enjoys international travel to help train church leaders. He loves to fish, read, and travel throughout the United States with his wife.
