STATEMENT FROM PRESIDING BISHOP CHARLES E. BLAKE, SR.
ON THE PASSING OF BISHOP RANCE LEE ALLEN
“How saddened we were to learn of the passing of our friend and brother, Bishop Rance Lee Allen. Best known as a gospel music artist, Bishop Allen served as jurisdictional prelate of the Michigan Northwest Harvest Jurisdiction. He was a spiritual leader, phenomenal singer and a preacher of the gospel. The Church of God in Christ has been blessed by his longtime involvement in the life of our church. Our prayers are with his lovely wife, Ellen Marie Allen, the Allen Family, the New Bethel Church of God in Christ in Toledo, OH and the Michigan Northwest Harvest Jurisdiction.”

In 1981 Bishop Jerry Macklin turned the light on in the City of Hayward, California, and found violence, gangs and a drug infested community. By faith he remained fearless, even against threats on his own life. He was determined to plant a church, stand his ground and take more calculated steps to shake the kingdom of darkness for the sake of the Gospel. The payoff of his convictions has been miraculous. What was once an urban war zone is now a thriving, prospering place of hope.
