Pastor Vince


A native of Columbus, Georgia, with more than twenty years in ministry, Vince Allen is committed to impacting the lives of people all over the world with the good news of Jesus Christ. He is a speaker known for his unyielding approach to teaching believers how to live a life of faith.

Vince attended Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, Tennessee on a football scholarship and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Broadcast Communications. A former educator in the public school system and corporate trainer for two Fortune 500 companies, Vince received the vision for his first ministry, New Life Church International, while on a business trip in 1995. He held the first worship service at a local YMCA in Columbus with only four members in attendance. The ministry grew to approximately 700 in eleven short years. Through effective evangelism and outreach, New Life Church impacted thousands of people in the Columbus community and countries around the world, and in 2008 the church merged with Bethany Worship Center to form The Bridge.

Vince is a spiritual son of Dr. Bill Winston of Chicago, Illinois. He has three children, Victoria, Mariah and Vince II.
