Hello, I am Jody Conley, Worship Leader and Director of Church Music here at Allen Baptist. I am equally blessed to serve as the Church Administrator. I am passionate about the worship of our Lord and Savior. Something beautiful and powerful happens when God’s people worship Him; after all it is all about Him and nothing about us! God has blessed me with my beautiful wife and sister in the Lord Teresa, three wonderful daughters and three beautiful grandchildren. I have been blessed to experience the life of music as a professional musician of 30 plus years, played on stage in many different venues, but have been overjoyed over the past several years to use the talents that God has so richly blessed me with for the up building of Gods kingdom. My life verse would be summed up in John 3:16
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life
I am that whosoever that He so loved, and SO ARE YOU! I look forward to seeing YOU worshipping with us.
