Allen Elsey - Pastor
When Paul in 2 Timothy 2:1-7, describes that a pastor is to fight like a soldier, train like an athlete, and work hard like a farmer, we're pretty sure he had Allen in mind. Allen is a clear picture of Christ and clearly has been called to a lifetime commitment of service to draw people to Christ. He strives to lead Rosedale into an ever-growing relationship with God.
His interests are hanging out with kids, playing basketball, and 'trying' to be funny." "I enjoy jumping from high places and trying to bring kids (up) from low places. I try to be happy in all places and be a positive impact for change in most places. My favorite place is any place God is." Allen is not only a fighter but he is an amazing servant. He drives the bus which picks up around 45-60 youth for weekly church services/activities on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. He is truly the definition of a servant leader.
