Kelly Allen, a passionate and tireless advocate for immigrants and social justice, died on June 5, 2016 after suffering a stroke.

As pastor of San Antonio’s University Presbyterian Church, Allen helped form the Interfaith Welcome Coalition, a humanitarian response to the women and children fleeing deadly violence and poverty in Central America and seeking asylum in the United States.

This page is an anthology of video and links to articles about Allen, who served congregations in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri, St. Louis, Missouri and Buckinghamshire, England before coming to San Antonio in 2009. Please let us know about additional content and we will add them here.
