Testimonials - Pastor Michael Allen


Michael Allen

Uptown Baptist Church

67 is a group of pastors that meet together for mutual accountability, encouragement and peer learning.   The 67 group I am in provides me a safe place where I can share openly and honestly the hard challenges and dark side of ministry.  The guys in my group get what I am going through and have something to say or speak into that dark side of ministry.  I feel encouraged to persevere in the ministry especially during hardships.

One particular challenge I was going through was the difficult task of releasing a staff member.  The men of 67 walked me through whether or not to release this person and what it should look like.  They also guided me through how to handle the fall out after.  I felt supported by their wise counsel and prayers.
