About Dr. K. Neill Foster

The concept for KNeillFoster.com was developed by the founder, K. Neill Foster. It was his desire to use the web to share the material and insights he had gained over many years of ministry. His work suddenly came to an end when the Lord called him home in May 2006. The web site was designed and continues to be operated by Al of AW Technical Solutions, Saskatoon SK Canada.
