Allen began work in the pastoral ministry at First Baptist Church in Clinton, LA in July 2013. After serving as a pastoral assistant, he became the church’s associate pastor in April 2014. Almost exactly two years later, FBC commissioned Allen as a missionary and sent him to Perth, Australia in order to plant a Reformed Baptist church. Allen, along with his wife and four children, have lived in Perth since that time. At present, he serves as the pastor of Emmanuel Reformed Baptist Church.
