Meet Our Pastor

He commuted each weekend for 20 months to lead DBC in worship and study while continuing his role as Professor of Youth Ministry at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.

Allen has also been interim pastor to three other churches and interim youth pastor to two more during his tenure at the seminary. He enjoys the preaching and leadership that come with helping churches through transitions, but really enjoys the ongoing relationship with this great church.

He has a business degree from the University of Southern Mississippi in accounting, and an MA and PhD from the New Orleans Seminary. Allen likes golf, travel, drinking coffee and snow skiing.

Allen is the husband of one wife (Judi) and the father of two adult children (Aaron and Sarah). Judi is also a doctor, having received her PhD in 2005. She is one of the key ministry leaders at Dunwoody Baptist Church and enjoys filling her time with mentoring, fitness, writing, and bargain-hunting.

Everyone has a next step. What is yours?
