About My Family

Allen and Jade are happily married with four children—Audri, Riley, Lila and Jacob. They have always had big hearts. Most of their children are foster-adopted. If you ever get the chance to know Allen and Jade you would see them as a couple who are able to embrace the chaos and turn into something beautiful.

Allen has known most of his life that God had big plans for him. At age 16, he surrendered to ministry full time. Jade on the other hand felt called to devote her life to outreach and missions as a young adult. A unique fact about Jade: She was born hearing and later became deaf due to chemo treatment.

Together Allen and Jade felt God pull on their hearts to plant a church in a forgotten area. Since the beginning of their marriage, they have always agreed to find new ways to reach the Hard of Hearing and Deaf community.

About My Church Plant

Living Faith is a church replant in Morning Sun, Ohio. We are a small little country village in Israel township. We are the only surviving church in Morning Sun.

The people in this village have asked for new life and for some former traditions to come back to the little village. Most of the families in the village are multi-generational and are lacking the love and support a local church offers.

Living Faith is becoming little by little a beacon of hope, love and faith for the town of Morning Sun and the surrounding areas. What is unique about our church? We are a mainstream Hard of Hearing/Deaf church. We will be providing live caption for all services and, in time, an American Sign Language praise team.

With your prayers and support we will be able to accomplish God plan for Morning Sun, Ohio.

NAMB Church Planting

Millions living in North America have not been reached with the gospel. But a new church makes change possible in an unreached neighborhood.
Send Network church planters immerse themselves in a community, learning the rhythms and culture as they establish relationships with the lost. A church plant grows out of the evangelism efforts of the planter and his core team.


Pray for the planter’s family as they work together in ministry. Pray the church will be established and will faithfully work to plant in other communities too. Pray the Lord brings leaders who can help within the church. Pray for stamina and longevity for ministry amidst attacks from the enemy.


Build relationships with a church planter, team members and their families. Send notes of encouragement. Learn birthdays and anniversaries, so you can send gifts and cards.
Learn the church plant, its strategy and context, so you can provide relevant resources. Support a church planter financially.
