Mount Nebo Missionary Baptist Church, is retiring
after thirty-two years of dedicated service.
I am pleased to join his parishioners in
thanking Reverend Allen for his devoted service
to his church and community.

Reverend Allen has served in many capacities
throughout his years in the ministry.
Among the many positions Reverend Allen
has held are President of the Puritan District
Congress of Texas and advisor to the City
Wide Ushers Association. Reverend Allen also
taught Moody Bible College courses to his parishioners
and other interested members of
the community. Reverend Allen served in the
United States Army from 1952 until 1954.
2010 Ron Paul 1:3
Under Reverend Allens leadership, Greater
Mount Nebo experienced a tremendous increase
in membership. Reverend Allen helped
ensure Greater Mount Nebo had sufficient resources
to construct a new edifice and retire
the churchs mortgage. Reverend Allen also
helped his congregation, and the entire community,
by organizing a variety of education

Reverend Allens parishioners benefited not
just from his teachings, but from his personal
example. Reverend Allen treats everyone who
crosses his path with integrity and compassion.
The vitality and warmth exhibited by this
spiritual and dedicated leader has earned him
the respect and admiration of those individuals
who have been privileged to know and work

In conclusion, Madam Speaker, I am
pleased to join the congregation of Greater
Mount Nebo Missionary Baptist Church in
thanking Reverend Charles L. Allen, Sr., for all
he has done to better the lives of his parishioners.
