Biographical Sketch

Reverend Timothy Allen is a nationally recognized lecturer on urban issues.

His heart for the plight of troubled youth drove him to begin working directly with this population as his vocation. For more than 20 years, he has worked with high-risk youth and their families. He has pioneered strategies to assist youth in re-integrating into their home communities and has designed and delivered training for families to help them support their children. His innovations have caught the attention of law enforcement agencies, schools, community-based organizations, and faith-based organizations, for which he is a regular speaker, trainer and consultant. Rev. Allen is also the senior pastor of the Greater Friendship Missionary Baptist Church, an urban ministry that focuses on restoring broken families.
