Dr. David Kyle Foster - Dr. David Kyle Foster (M-Div – Trinity Evangelical Divinity School; D-Min – Trinity School for Ministry) 

Before his salvation in 1980, David struggled with a serious bondage to pornography and other sexually addictive behaviors. He is the author of Love Hunger: A Harrowing Journey from Sexual Addiction to True Fulfillment; Sexual Healing: A Biblical Guide to Finding Freedom from Sexual Sin and Brokenness; and Transformed Into His Image: Hidden Steps on the Journey to Christlikeness.

David has served as adjunct professor at Asbury Theological Seminary, The Bible Institute of Hawaii, Logos Christian College & Graduate School, Trinity Episcopal School for Ministry and the Wagner Leadership Institute.

His magazine articles have appeared in New Man, Charisma, Touchstone, Rev Magazine, Sursum Corda, and Youth Ministry Update. He has spoken on five continents about the healing of sin and brokenness, has appeared on The 700 Club, The Dr. Phil Show, The Coral Ridge Hour, The Abundant Life, Cope, His Place, Home Life, and has been the host of Covenant Award winning “Mastering Life” on the Focus on the Family Radio Network.

David founded Mastering Life Ministries in 1987 and has been its director ever since. He is also the producer and host of “Pure Passion” – a televised outreach designed to equip the church to redemptively minister to those who are trapped in sexual sin and brokenness. “Pure Passion” has been airing for eight years and it’s now seen on 10 networks and in 13 languages worldwide. The goal of the program is to tell the world of God’s grace and love through Jesus Christ and His power to set anyone free from any sin or bondage. Dr. Foster is also the producer/director of the 2014 documentary, “Such Were Some of You” and makes his home in Nashville, TN.
