A special assembly of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the Northern Lights Region meeting Saturday, December 9, unanimously voted to call the Reverend Paul Allen IV to be its next Regional Minister-President.
Paul Allen is currently the pastor of First Christian Church, Huntsville, Alabama, having previously served congregations in North Carolina and Manhattan, Kansas
Paul is a graduate of Barton College and Lexington Theological Seminary and has regional ministry in his genes. Both Paul’s parents served in Disciples congregations and regional ministry. He is married to Patti who is a Registered Nurse. Their daughter Abby is a junior at Auburn University and their son Joe is a junior in high school.
As the newest region in the church, the Northern Lights Region is excited to welcome Paul to leadership as we continue to live into who God is calling us to become, supporting pastors and congregations as we strive to faithfully answer God’s call to ministry as we do together that which we cannot do apart.
