ELDER STEFFAN M. ALLEN
Born and raised in church as a third generation Pentecostal. From an early age had a very good grasp of the word of God and enjoyed Sunday school and education in general. Education has always been something that was highly valued and thoroughly enjoyed in his family. Elder Allen graduated high school with honors in 2009 and began attending teachers meeting shortly after. He furthered his education by attending the University of Illinois at Chicago in pursuit of his degree in Mechanical Engineering - studying the physics and understanding on the effects of gravity in addition to studying scripture.
In 2013, Elder Allen began to accept the call that he had always understood was on his life. He began to exalt and preach the occasional sermonette and in the Spring of 2014 he took the Elder’s Catechism test to become an ordained Elder in the Lord Jesus Christ.
That summer in Rosemont, IL he was ordained an Elder by Chief Apostle Huie. L. Rogers and his father Bishop Bryan S. Allen. Since then, Elder Allen has gone on to receive his Bachelors Degree of Science in Mechanical Technology in 2016. Elder Allen was appointed the Assistant Pastor of Greater Bible Way in 2017. He is currently a student at Northern Baptist Seminary, studying to acquire his Masters of Theology and Mission degree expected in the winter of 2020.
Elder Allen has been an active member of GBWAT since birth, involved in everything from the musical department for the church, teacher of Christian Education, and heavily involved in the Young Peoples Union.
Through much prayer he will continue to grow and become all that God has intended for him to be carrying on his family legacy!
