Introducing our elders…Jerry Allee



* My wife, Trish and I have been attending Suncrest since the Spring of 1996.  We had our grandson Thomas living with us at the time and were drawn to Suncrest initially through the strong children’s ministry.


* My  parents, Ron and Anna May Allee had the biggest spiritual impact on my life in my growing years.  They just celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary so needless to say they also have had a great influence on my adult life and gave a great example of a strong Christian home and marriage.  After leaving home and going off to college, the campus minister at Purdue Christian Campus House, Doug Dickey, had a very big influence on my maturity as a Christ follower.  He married Trish and I and I will always respect his advice and leadership.


*Suncrest is truly a place where we can be used by God to change lives.  We are and always will strive to be an outreach to the local community.  The church is charged to seek and save the lost and that is what Suncrest is doing.


*Trish and I have been married over 30 years and have 3 daughters:  Krista, Kate and Karyn  and 4 grandsons and 1 granddaughter.  I owned Oak Hill Animal Clinic in Crown Point for 36 years and just last summer retired from veterinary medicine.  I now volunteer at St. Anthony’s Hospital in spiritual care one morning a week and do relief work for area veterinary hospitals.


*  Trish and I saw the movie “Bucket List” this past winter and are now working on our list of things to do before we’re not able to do them.  Things like white water rafting, sky diving,  hang gliding on wires through the jungle and any other wild thing we can come up with.  We love to travel and just last fall took a Mediterranean cruise around Italy.  This fall we are cruising through the Panama Canal.


* I love reading Christian books.  I just finished “One Month to Live, 30 Days to a No-Regrets Life” by Kerry & Chris Shook and am now about to finish one of the best books I’ve read “The Reason for God, Belief in an Age of Skepticism” by Timothy Keller.  I also enjoy reading John Grisham books and am now reading “The Appeal”.


* I count it a privilege to serve as an elder at Suncrest and look forward to our meetings and serving with the other men that we have as elders.
