After serving in Peru, South America with Peru Mission for nearly a decade, Allen & Sandi have returned to their passport country, the USA. Allen is on staff at Perimeter Church in Atlanta, GA serving in church planting. In the Summer 2017, they will move to Miami to plant a church in partnership with Crossbridge Church and Redeemer’s City To City Miami.
Growing up in Arkansas, Allen remembers racing motorcycles, working with his dad as a mobile disk jockey and traveling with his family to Central America every year on medical mission trips. While at Louisiana Tech University, he met the 2 most important people in his life: Jesus and Sandi. Sandi is a Louisiana Delta native. She grew up in the culturally rich town of Ferriday, LA, the same hometown as three famous entertainers: Jerry Lee Lewis, Mickey Gilley, and Jimmy Swaggart. Sandi has worked as a Registered Dietitian, but in more recent years has a photography business. She also likes to spend what time she can on the tennis court and in the sun with her daughters.
The Smiths are proud parents of 4 daughters: Abigail (15), Adeline (13), Mary Allen (10) and Evangeline (7)
