Tom Allen

Teaching Pastor


Tom Allen has served as the Teaching Pastor of Riverstone since July 2005. His passion for preaching comes out of his belief that relevant, Christ-centered teaching promotes spiritual growth and points people to Christ. He focuses on expository preaching, verse-by-verse teaching through books of the Bible, that ensures believers get the whole counsel of God and not just certain topics out of balance. Tom believes that God has gifted all believers for the work of the ministry, and therefore a high priority of the local church should be to help people recognize their gifts, develop them, and be trained for the work of ministry. Tom’s love for the Lord is exhibited in his gift of evangelism and desire to share Christ with all who will listen.  Since 1992, Tom has been serving full-time as an Associate Professor in the School of Bible and Church Ministry at Cairn University. He is an alumnus of Cairn and holds a Master of Theology degree in New Testament from Dallas Theological Seminary. Tom and his wife Tammy live in Langhorne and have three grown children.
