After serving as the U.S. Fire Administrator for the United States Fire Administration, the highest office in the profession, Chief Kelvin J. Cochran got fired for writing a Bible study book including traditional Christian sexual ethics. He now tells the story of his vindication with Alliance Defending Freedom.
Kelvin J. Cochran serves as senior fellow and vice president for Alliance Defending Freedom. His primary function is to oversee ADF’s Leadership Development Program.
Before joining ADF, Cochran was the former fire chief of the City of Atlanta, where he was terminated for writing a book for a Christian men’s Bible study. ADF successfully represented him in a lawsuit in which a federal court ruled the city discriminated against Cochran’s religious views and violated his First Amendment rights.
