Blaine Allen (ThM, Dallas Theological Seminary; DMin, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary) pastors in a university community and loves it. But having served three churches over the years, along with the good he has seen the ugly side of ministry. Blind-sided. Friends turned snipers. Power plays. Betrayed. He's been there and felt that and then some and he still loves to pastor! Blaine is the author of Before You Quit: When Ministry Is Not What You Thought.
