Don’t Kid Yourself
Dr. Joe Allen, Jr, campus pastor at DTS, opens the spring semester by encouraging listeners to be both hearers and doers of the word, for only hearing and not doing is deceptive when measuring spiritual maturity and growth.
Dr. Allen earned his Master of Theology degree from Dallas Theological Seminary in 1988 and his Doctor of Ministry degree from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1994. He has been pastoring for over 30 years, mainly in Georgia, his home state. His high school sweetheart, and wife for over 40 years, Lindsey teaches 5th grade at First Baptist Academy. The Allens have two married children and two grandchildren. Both of their children serve in vocational Christian ministry. Joe currently serves as our Campus Pastor at Dallas Theological Seminary.
