Larry Allen is a Licensed and Ordained Minister of the Gospel. Larry has served as a missionary with Evangelism Explosion and has traveled both in the USA and internationally to teach others how to share the Gospel.
On September 11, 2001, Larry was six blocks from the World Trade Center. The events on that day made him realize how significant his call was to reach others with the Gospel. Larry is active in his home church and has taught both Sunday School and evangelism classes. Larry and Jen currently live in SC.
Larry is ready to help you develop the discipleship resources that will make disciples out of believers.
Jennifer Allen was a home-educator of their son and daughter, who are now young adults. Larry and Jen have one grandchild. Jennifer’s administrative skills enable her to actively serve with her husband in ministry. Jennifer has an incredible attention to detail and has been instrumental in developing the quality of the materials that their ministries have produced.
Jennifer’s calling to missions became evident after she and her family hosted missionaries in their home during their church’s annual missions conference. “I realized that missionaries were just like me but being obedient to God’s calling.”

“My joy is helping people make a spiritual impact on those around them. And an eternal impact is the ultimate! Writing curriculum for Sharing My Faith Ministries is my God-given direction for now. We’ll see where God leads as we pray to be a part of His plan to reach to the ends of the earth.”
