A life-long Christian and Presbyterian, Pastor Todd Allen hails from Avon, Ohio, located just west of Cleveland. He is the youngest of three children—and taller than both of them!

 

Todd attended Kenyon College, also located in Ohio, where he earned a B.A. in Political Science and a B.A. in Studio Art, both with highest honors. For a time, he prepared to pursue a career in law. Todd then felt pulled to pursue a career in marketing/advertising where he worked in the headquarters office of Young & Rubicam, located in New York City, for nearly a decade, managing accounts for clients such Johnson & Johnson and The U.S. Army Reserve. During this same time Todd became deeply involved in the ministries of a historic Presbyterian church in New Jersey where he lived. A sabbatical spent on the island of Iona, off the west coast of Scotland, confirmed Todd’s sense of call to enter into theological studies. He holds a Masters in Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary. 

Pastor Todd’s first call, post seminary, saw him return to Scotland and serve an 1,800-member congregation there. Since returning to the United States, he has served Presbyterian congregations in Ohio, Minnesota, North Carolina and Alaska. Each church family—and ministry setting—has added to his wisdom and love of the Lord. Pastor Todd has completed interim ministry training required by the Presbyterian Church (USA). He has earned one unit of Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE). He is also certified in Conflict Mediation through the Lombard Mennonite Peace Center.  

Serving Park Presbyterian brings Pastor Todd back in touch with his Midwest roots, but he looks forward to an overseas adventure once a year. He enjoys the local walking paths and autumn colors on display. He can also lose himself for hours keeping a fleet of aging SAAB automobiles on the road. Other interests include philately, vintage audio, and military modeling.

Eric has always been honored to be in church music. “I get to help make special the most important times in the lives of others.” He also feels passionately about uniting people and helping them connect to their God through music. This has been his mantra since accepting his first position as director of music and organist at age 16.

 

“I’ve always felt that if we are making music for our Creator, it should be honest, majestic, heartfelt and the highest quality. If we believe that God enters our presence every Sunday, then we should treat each Sundays as if it were Easter!”

 

Being trained as a performer and having sung such roles as Samson in Saint-Saens’s “Samson and Delilah” and Marcello in Puccini’s “La Boheme”, Eric believes that his stage experience helps him to keep church music exciting and refined.

 

Eric enjoys: Performing, teaching voice, coffee and wondering what other people do on Sunday mornings.
