Born in north Georgia, Troy Allen was abducted to the frozen north of Massachusetts where he vowed to someday return to the beautiful south. He moved to Florida in 1991 shortly after marrying the lady of his dreams, Stacey. There God gifted him with a full quiver of awesome kids, Anastasia, Logan, Luke and Eve. It is a well known fact that his kids first initial spells out his last name minus one. Faced with the prospect of providing an "N" he adopted a dog and named him Nibbles.
In 1996 a friend took him to a Promise Keepers event. It was there that he was saved by faith and has been developing his relationship with God ever since.
Several years later God called him to work with the children and youth at FBC Homosassa. He has taught Sunday School, ministered as a Deacon and served 14 years as Commander of our AWANA program. A few years back an opportunity to serve as Director of Student Ministries was extended. He accepted but prefers to be called "the youth group guy" as you can get away will all sorts of nonsense that way.
Ever praying to always be young at heart, all the while growing mature in Christ. His life verse is...
1 Corinthians 9:26-27
I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:
But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
So fight I.
