With his dining room table as an office, the organization grew from one person to more than one million supporters. He fought liberal attempts to secularize America. Those who opposed him tried nearly every effort to denigrate and destroy him with smears, halftruths and character assassination. He scoffed at the many names used against him in their attempt to discredit his efforts. He and his family have paid a price for his courageous battle for Judeo-Christian values.

Today, American Family Association and American Family Radio are fulfilling the mission for which they were founded, giving spiritual food and information to listeners and readers and calling individuals to involvement.  –Allen Wildmon

He received a Master of Divinity from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. He has received two honorary Doctorate Degrees.

He served in the U.S. Army and served in the pulpit as a minister for 13 years. He is the author of 20 books with 500,000 in print. He stepped down from his church pulpit in 1977 and founded AFA when he saw the anti-Christian bias increasing in America.

As chairman of AFA, he oversaw the building of 195 FM Christian radio stations located throughout the nation. He also oversaw the building of an in-house internet service provider and the formation of American Family Studios to produce Christian films.

He resigned as chairman of AFA due to an illness from St. Louis encephalitis in 2010.
