After serving in Peru, South America with Peru Mission for nearly a decade, Allen & Sandi returned to the States to help the Church in America become more missional and rediscover gospel-centered discipleship. Allen serves as the Pastor of Missional Communities at Bay Area Community Church in Annapolis, MD.
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 and started a photography business. When she is not watching their daughters run hurdles, play beach volley and kick the soccer ball, you can find her on the tennis court or her paddle board.
The Smiths are proud parents of their 4 daughters: Abbie (16), Adeline (14), Mary Allen (11) and Evangeline (8)
