Elms Allen

Dr. Allen and his wife Harriet have been long-time members of First Pres, and Elms had a long and illustrious career in Winston-Salem as an oncologist, hospital administrator, and development officer with the Novant Heath Center. This is the third time he has come out of retirement, and he feels that God has been calling him to this ministry position for some time. His background as a physician and his gentle and caring spirit along with his deep commitment to Jesus Christ make him uniquely qualified to fill this role on our church staff. And his experience as an elder on Session and teacher in our adult Sunday School program for many years are additional gifts he brings to the position.
