Pastors and Church Staff

Allen Bingham

Allen Bingham joined the leadership team of Queen Street Church in July of 2007. In reading of Queen Street’s proud history he embraced the church’s call to serve the broader community. Later that year, Jeremiah’s letter to the Jews in exile in Babylon captured his spirit. Jeremiah offered this word of the Lord to the exiled Jews: “build houses and live in them, plant gardens and eat what they produce, … seek the prosperity of the city where I have sent you, for in its prosperity you will find your prosperity” (Jeremiah 29:4-7 paraphrased). Allen believes in what Kinston is becoming and prays for its prosperity while guiding Queen Street Church into the future.
