UCC Calls Rev. Allen Lutes as Minister of Outreach
A warm UCC welcome to Rev. Allen Lutes as he accepts the call to be our new Minister of Outreach. Allen comes to us an ordained deacon in the United Methodist Church with a heart for mission and connecting people to God and community. He served as Associate Pastor of Arlington Heights United Methodist Church from June 2014-December 2019 and most recently as Associate Pastor of First Grapevine UMC from January 2020 to now.
In both congregations he led missions, pastoral care and contemporary worship.
Allen graduated from TCU with a B.A. in Radio-TV-Film Management in 1997 and was awarded a Master of Liberal Arts in 2003. He earned a Culinary Certificate from the Culinary School of Fort Worth in 2005 and a Master of Arts in Theology and Ministry from Brite Divinity School in 2014.
“I believe in the transformative power of serving others and enjoy helping others find their gifts of service,” Allen explained. “As a former chef, I also believe in the power of a shared meal at God’s table, which is diverse, inclusive and open to all.”
