Ian Allen

Director of Eminent Worship

After graduating from Columbus State University in 2008 with an Early Childhood Education degree Ian spent 8 years teaching in the 4th and 5th grade classrooms. In 2016 he felt a strong conviction to resign from the school system to pursue full time ministry as the director of a non profit ministry called Eminent Worship in Columbus, Ga. With a stay at home wife and two kids he took an audacious leap of faith in pursuit of fulfilling his God given calling on his life. Now, at 32 years old, he runs Eminent Worship under the vision to Unify and equip the body of Christ through authentic, spirit-filled worship.


I have been serving in some way with Take the city since October 2013. I spent a lot of time on the prayer team in the beginning and encountered God’s heart for the city in a life changing way. When the teams came back and shared testimonies, it was always fun to see that our prayers coincided with some of their testimonies in special ways. More recently I have had the privilege of leading a team to a nursing home where I used to be an employee. I used to pray over the facility every day, and it was such a miracle to see an old friend who lives there give his life to Jesus on one of our outreaches a year later. God sure has a way of answering prayers. And Take the City is an answer to so many prayers that have gone up here.
