Ealy. Pastor Allen was ordained an Elder in the Church Of God In Christ in 1982 by the late Bishop J.A. Blake, Sr. He faithfully served in the church on the local level in several capacities and worked many years in the State Youth Department of Southern California First Jurisdiction. Pastor Allen was appointed the District Superintendent of the Antelope Valley District of Southern California, First Jurisdiction, by Bishop Charles E. Blake in January 2005.
On a secular level Supt. Allen was a school teacher with the Long Beach Unified School District for over 23 years. He received an A.A. degree in Child Development, a B.A. degree in Human Development and a M.A. degree in Education, with a concentration in counseling and guidance. He was a faithful and loving husband to his partner in ministry, Lady La Tanya Blake Allen and a devoted father to their wonderful children. He was a man of godly character and integrity.
