FOUNDations: A. A. Allen


“If you are walking with Jesus, in the Spirit, you need not fear going too far. No believer has gone as far as God wants him to go.”
For brief bio: A. A. Allen (March 27, 1911 – June 11, 1970) was born Asa A. Allen at Sulphur Rock, Arkansas. His middle name, given only as “A.” on his birth certificate, was changed to “Alonso” at around age four. Allen’s early life was filled with poverty, but in 1934 he was converted during a Methodist revival meeting, and began ministering with the Assemblies of God (AG or AofG) in 1936. While attending an Oral Roberts Tent revival in 1949, Allen felt a burden to reach the lost with the miracle-working power of God and he soon hit the revival trail. Allen would be part of the “Golden Era of Tent Evangelism,” that flourished between the end of World War Two and the mid-1960s. Allen’s life and methods were not without controversy and as with many of the other tent evangelists, he was the recipient of much criticism and personal scrutiny. Allen died in June of 1970 in San Francisco, and was buried at his evangelistic headquarters, at Miracle Valley, Arizona.
