Candidate for State Treasurer; State of Missouri

This information is provided by the candidate
The Constitution Party stands on the God-honoring principles that made this nation great. So many in our land are seeing the damage done by a two-party system in which collaboration and collusion lead us farther and farther away from the God-ordained principles of limited government written into our Constitution by the founding fathers.
Rodney "Rod" Farthing is the Constitution Party candidate for Treasurer. Born in 1949 in Mt. Vernon, IL, Rod graduated Cum Laude in 1971 from St. Louis Christian College in Florissant, MO. He married Jan Davidson in Ballwin, MO, in 1970. They have six children ranging in age from 34 to 12 (plus one beautiful granddaughter!) Three of their children are grown and live in the St. Charles County area. The three younger are 19, 16, and 12; the oldest of these begins Bible College in this fall.

Rod was listed in "Outstanding Young Men of America" in 1978. He has served as chairman for Right to Life organizations in each of the states in which he has lived. While living in Kentucky, he also served as chairman of "Don't Risk Our Youth" in a political battle to prohibit alcohol sales in Madisonville, in order to retain their dry-community status.

Rod has been a member of the Dent County Salvation Army board for over 12 years, where he's served as both secretary and chairman. He has served as treasurer for the Missouri Christian Convention. He's also served treasurer of the Alexander Christian Foundation, a Christian scholarship foundation. In his nine years of work with the Dent County Ministerial Fellowship, he's been both chairman and secretary.

Rod served as a minister in the Christian Churches/Churches of Christ for 33 years, concluding his years in the pulpit with a nine-year ministry at the First Christian Church in Salem, MO, where he and his family have lived for fifteen years. In 2001 he began working as Development Director with American Rehabilitation Ministries headquartered in Joplin, MO.

Rod is also senior chaplain with Phelps County Regional Medical Center Hospice, serving patients and families in a five-county area for the last fourteen years. His "hobby" is, and always has been, serving people.
