Allen Hood has been pastoring the students at Rejoice Church since 2012. A preacher’s kid himself, Allen hails from Birmingham, Alabama. He loves spending time with students and feels the most rewarding part of his job is when they trust him enough for advice and direction. Allen has an Engineering degree for the University of Alabama at Birmingham and still enjoys building things in his spare time. As an Alabama boy, he can be recognized around town by his Alabama Crimson Tide decals all over his pickup truck and the remarkable amount of crimson-colored apparel he has in his closet. He and Jordan gave birth to their first child, Glenn Allen Hood III (Tripp) on May 16, 2014.
Special Opportunity: Campus Days
This particular event coincides with our spring Campus Days event which will be held March 8-9 (this event is rescheduled from February 22-23).

Sunday, March 1
Michael Boggs is an accomplished multi-format musician, singer, and songwriter. He’s toured the world, become a sought-after songwriter, and leads worship for thousands.
Growing up, he was convinced he’d be a professional athlete. By the time college came along, he had a spot waiting for him to play football for a big-name university. He never took music lessons, never sent demo tapes to record labels, but when God came calling with His plan for Boggs, Michael took that most important step: he listened and obeyed. Boggs felt a call to attend a tiny Bible college in Oklahoma that didn’t even have a football team, and so he went.
So how did he end up an award-winning musician? Read Michael’s whole story here and then join us on March 1 for a special gathering and time of worship.
