The Rev John Allen, Rector
A WA resident, born and raised, John Allen is a true lover of the Pacific Northwest. Raised in the Anglican tradition, he grew up with the liturgical practices being an integral part of his identity. After high school, he attended Western Washington University studying history with the intention of continuing on to law school. During this time he served as a church youth leader, a university ministry team member and a summer Christian camp counselor for kids.
It was during his second year at Western that he discerned a call to ministry and instead of law, he went on to pursue a Masters in Divinity through Wycliffe Hall in England and then Trinity School for Ministry in Pittsburgh. While studying theology, he met his wife Camila (pictured with Fr. John) and married in the summer of 2015. After seminary, they discerned a call to return to Washington in order to help establish a liturgical community, rooted in the apostolic faith of the church that will grow men and women into disciples of Christ.
In his free time, John enjoys reading books, critiquing films, cheering on the Seahawks, travelling, and snowboarding down the slopes of the Cascades.
