“15 years ago, at Southwestern Seminary, we chose a large, four-manual Allen for Truett Auditorium. I have been greatly pleased with this instrument and its versatility in both traditional and contemporary styles of worship. The new 3,500-seat MacGorman Chapel features a larger Allen augmented by 30 ranks of pipes. I look forward to playing this thrilling instrument for years to come.

At the First Baptist Church of Dallas, it has also been my pleasure to oversee the selection of a three-manual Allen for the chapel. And, on Easter Sunday of 2013, our new five-manual Allen will make its debut in the fabulous new worship center nearing completion in downtown Dallas.

These instruments have helped the organ retain its rightful place in worship and in the education of church musicians at both Southwestern Seminary and at First Baptist Church. I am thankful to the leadership of both institutions for the wisdom shown in these decisions and for the consummate knowledge, expertise and passion of the Dallas/Fort Worth Allen Organ Company representatives.”
