Steve Farrar is the founder and chairman of Men’s Leadership Ministries. He is a graduate of California State University, Fullerton, where he majored in Speech Communication. He holds a Master’s degree from Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon, and an earned doctorate from Dallas Theological Seminary in Dallas, Texas. In writing his doctoral dissertation, Steve surveyed over 1,000 men from across the nation, and questioned them about their marriages, their children, their careers, and their ethics. Steve’s original research into the needs of Christian men became the basis for his conferences and his books.
Steve Farrar is the author of the best-selling book, Point Man: How a Man Can Lead His Family. With over 400,000 copies now in print, Point Man was the catalyst for his leaving the pastorate after 15 years and focusing his ministry on equipping men for spiritual leadership. Shortly after the release of Point Man, Steve began to receive speaking invitations from all over the nation. “Quite frankly, the response was overwhelming,” says Steve. “We received over 350 speaking requests during the first year of the book’s release.”
Since the release of Point Man in 1990, Steve Farrar has also authored fifteen other books, including the best-selling Finishing Strong, his current, King Me, What Every Son Wants and Needs From His Father and his newest release, How To Ruin Your Life By Forty. He is a frequent speaker for Men’s Leadership Ministries conferences, Promise Keepers and many other events throughout the nation.
Steve’s wife, Mary, holds her Master’s degree from Dallas Theological Seminary and has published the best-selling book, Choices: For Women Who Long to Discover Life’s Best. The Farrars have three grown children and currently reside in suburban Dallas, Texas.
