My wife, Annie, and I welcome you to the Immanuel Experience. We are committed to caring for you as God cares for you. God's love for you is everlasting. His plans for your life are unchanging. We'd love to journey with you as you learn His plans and live out His purposes.
In His name and for His glory,
Bishop Ricky Allen
Founder, Sr. Pastor
God's hand on my life was apparent at age four.
"Sister Wilson, that boy is going to be a preacher one day," Mother Sally, the Pastor's mother, said about the little redhead child whose grandmother carried him to church.
"Brother Ricky is going to be something special someday," the Pastor said about the teenager longing for direction and purpose.
"He's a visionary," spectators have said after seeing God's ideas and plans for my life come to fruition.
"He's driven and seeks excellence," said those who watch me care for others.
As a bi-vocational Pastor for over 33 years, my studies at the University of Arkansas at Monticello, Charles Harrison Mason Bible College, and Light University have made me a student of knowledge and truth. My 40-year work for a Fortune 500 company has grown my leadership abilities.
I am honored that the Almighty God chose, called, and anointed me for Kingdom work.
