Rev. Dr. Peter Allen #11584
Ever since he received his MDiv in 1988 from Andover Newton Theological School and his DMin from Hartford Seminary, Pete has maintained a focus on the religious and spiritual lives of young adults. During his career, Pete has served various churches, led charity work with Simply Smiles, and participated in the life of his community and the wider church, many times as a Youth Pastor or leader for youth mission trips. He currently is Senior Pastor at Hingham Congregational Church, UCC, in Hingham, MA, where he lives with his wife, Tracy.
Pete believes that being asked to serve on Dudley’s Board of Trustees is an incredible honor, yet he hopes it will also feel very natural to him. Pete’s father #5242 Bruce and uncle #5070 Craig attended Dudley in the ’30s and he has been associated with camp since his Cub summer in 1974. Both of Pete’s sons, #17984 Hank and #18708 James, were nurtured and challenged at Dudley, experiencing tremendous growth and unparalleled fun. Each summer, as he makes his way to Westport or Colchester to preach, give a vesper, lead a hike, or ump a game, it feels like coming home. As a Trustee, Pete hopes to bring his knowledge and experience as an ordained minister who cares deeply about the spiritual and social development of youth and young adults.
