Allen and his wife, Bre, joined the staff in August 2011 to establish Northside’s ministry to college-age students. They adopted their son, Hudson, in May of 2017, who was 2 1/2 at the time.
They enjoy spending time with family, hosting small groups, and experimenting new latte recipes and coffee brewing techniques with their friends. Allen and Bre are passionate about seeing college-age believers understand the joy and the cost of following Jesus in such a formative time of life. The collaborative commitment to the study, preaching and teaching of God’s Word is Allen’s favorite thing about Northside.
Allen spends his days pretending to understand technology, rooting for the Denver Broncos, Duke Blue Devils and Texas Rangers, roughhousing with Hudson, and occasionally mountain biking on some of Springfield’s great trails.
