Commencement Keynote Speaker
Rev. Dr. Fraser Venter is the Free Methodist Strategic Catalyst for Love-Driven Justice. A position that serves and encourages the FMCUSA Conferences, Churches, Networks, Pastors, and Leaders to know and demonstrate God’s heart for Biblical Justice.
Previously Fraser was the Lead Pastor of Cucamonga Christian Fellowship for 25 years, a multi-site and multi-lingual congregation. In addition to his former pastoral role in the Rancho Cucamonga area, he served as one of the Southern California Free Methodist Superintendents. And what seems like a whole other lifetime was an executive for a privately held company. Along with serving the Free Methodist Church Fraser currently serves on various Justice non-profits that care for the marginalized and is a certified Cultural Intelligent and Bias Trainer.
After growing up in Canada his family moved to Southern California where he had the opportunity to attend University in San Diego. Forsaking the snow he planted his roots in the Los Angeles area.
Growing up in a bi-racial home has given Fraser a passion for bridge building and justice work in various contexts. Fraser has a passion to see the next generation launched not only towards purpose but deeply rooted in an identity in Christ that is well formed and abundantly loved.
With regard to family, Fraser’s claim to fame is that when he married JoAnne, he ‘married up.’ And that is still true after 30 years. He and JoAnne have been blessed with two adult children, Madisen and Jeffrey, who are amazing world changers. And now the captor of his heart, his first grandchild, Gabriel William Marble.
