Matthew & Becky Allen, live in Waynesville, Ohio. Matthew has served as the pulpit minister for Cornerstone Church of Christ in Centerville (Dayton), Ohio since 2010 and has been preaching since 1995. Becky has been blessed to be a stay-at-home mom for most of that time. She now plays a major role in the day to day operations of Spiritbuilding. Matt and Becky have two grown children. Emilea is a pediatric physical therapist at a clinic in St. Marys, GA. Zackary is a sales professional for Cort Furniture in Smyrna, TN.
Originally from southwest Arkansas, the Allens are now proud to call Ohio home. They live out in the country on 4 acres between Dayton and Cincinnati. They’ve been blessed to fix up the mid-century home they purchased in 2018 and enjoy living outside of town. Besides their two children, they are the proud parents of two dachshunds, Frankie and Lily. They are also happy to care for their two German Shepherd/Lab grandpups, Lucy and Luna.
In a preaching career approaching 30 years, Matthew has done local work with churches in Kentucky, South Dakota, Indiana, and Ohio. Over the previous two decades, he has written a number of books and workbooks for Spiritbuilding. His writing has also appeared in a number of brotherhood journals and magazines. Becky’s writing has also been featured in a book for preacher’s wives. Besides Matthew’s local and domestic ministerial work, he has been blessed to do mission work in Ukraine, Canada, Belize, and Colombia. He has also directed a number of mens retreats around the country. Becky is heavily involved in coordinating women’s activites at the Cornerstone Church and teaches children’s Bible classes during the year. Both are committed to the mission of serving and encouraging others and look forward to helping you along your spiritual journey.
