Alliance Defense Fund


"Responding to the urgent need for the legal defense and advocacy of religious freedom, the leaders of more than 35 ministries came together in 1994 to launch ADF. These leaders included the late Dr. Bill Bright, the late Larry Burkett, Dr. James Dobson, the late Dr. D. James Kennedy, and the late Marlin Maddoux. Their prime concern was the dramatic loss of religious freedom in America's courts and the resulting challenges to people of faith to live and proclaim the Gospel."
