In the fall of 1965, Pastor Jon accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior praying with repentance and faith at his father’s bedside in their family home in Livonia. He was called to minister at the Community Baptist Church in the fall of 1975. He was Assistant Pastor to his father Dr. James B. Allen who had a great 30 year pastorate at the Community Baptist Church. In 1979 when his father retired, the Community Baptist Church voted in Pastor Allen as the third pastor of the church. God has given Pastor Jon 36 years of fruitful ministry.
Pastor says, "Thank God for His call, His people, and His work. May He richly bless our service to the King of Kings, Jesus Christ the Lord".

(John 3:16) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
(John 14:6) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
(Ephesians 2:8) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.
