About Andrew Farley
Hi, I’m Andrew Farley. I am the author of the bestselling book The Naked Gospel (Zondervan).
I’m also the president of a non-profit media ministry, Andrew Farley Ministries, which is devoted to helping people better understand the grace of God.
My Media Appearances
My writings have been featured by media outlets such as Fox News, PBS, Showtime, and The Huffington Post. I have also appeared on Christian TV and radio programs such as 100 Huntley Street, It’s a New Day, Steve Brown Etc., and Lifeline with Neil Boron.
People often say, “You are putting into words what I always knew was true in my heart.”
Nothing makes me happier than hearing that! My mission is to help people better understand the grace of God and to see them enjoy freedom.
I write and speak on God’s forgiveness, how to live under grace, our new identity in Christ, and what new life in Jesus really means. Occasionally, I write or speak about stuff like knowing the will of God or how to view Christ’s return.
“You are putting into words what I always knew was true in my heart.”
I also serve as lead pastor of Church Without Religion in west Texas. Each week, I release new podcasts of my Sunday message and my Sunday radio program which airs live on Sirius XM.
My goal is to offer practical, Scriptural insights that challenge the way you look at God and at yourself. If you’re the type of person that likes to get a dose of truth a few times each week and occasionally dig even deeper into a particular subject, then this site is for you.
I typically post a video or a reflection two to three times a week. To make sure you don’t miss my newest content, you can subscribe via email. It takes less than a minute to sign up and you can unsubscribe at any time.
I grew up in Warrenton, Virginia on a horse farm called Summerfield Farm. My father Guy Farley was an attorney and later worked in the hotel business. My mother Leslie Farley was a schoolteacher and later a Christian counselor. She still lives in Virginia where my brother Will and my sister Amanda also reside.
I attended high school at Emmanuel Christian School in Manassas, VA. I earned my bachelor’s degree at Furman University, my master’s degree at University of Georgia, and my doctorate at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Over the last two decades, I have served as a professor of linguistics at University of Notre Dame and at Texas Tech University. I also serve as lead pastor of Church Without Religion here in west Texas.
I have been married to my wife, Katharine, for sixteen years. We have one son, Gavin, and we live in west Texas. In our free time, we all enjoy snow sports, watersports, and travel together.
