Our Governing Elders
Tom Allen has served as the Teaching Pastor of Bible Fellowship since July 2005. His passion for preaching comes out of his belief that relevant, Christ-centered teaching promotes spiritual growth and points people to Christ. He focuses on expository preaching, which is the verse by verse teaching through books of the Bible that ensures believers get the whole counsel of God and not just certain topics out of balance. Tom believes that God has gifted all believers for the work of the ministry and therefore a high priority of the local church should be to help people recognize their gifts, develop them and be trained for the work of ministry. Tom's love for the Lord is exhibited in his gift of evangelism and desire to share Christ with all who will listen.
Tom also serves full-time as Associate Professor of Cairns University. He is an alumnus of PBU and holds a Master of Theology in New Testament Studies from Dallas Theological Seminary. Tom and his wife, Tammy, live in Langhorne and have three children.
