Bishop Rance Allen was born in 1948 in Monroe, Michigan, one of 12 children. At the age of five he began his preaching ministry and by age nine was preaching throughout Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania. A gifted musician and anointed gospel singer, Bishop Allen and his brothers Tom and Steve formed The Rance Allen Group in 1969 and began to travel the world with a contemporary and innovative gospel sound. Bishop Allen’s incomparable vocals are much sought after by the industry and have been heard on the projects of various gospel greats. In 2009, he was celebrated as one of the Great Men of Gospel by The Black Academy of Arts and Letters and has made a name for himself as an actor by appearing in several gospel music stage and on-screen productions.
He became the founding pastor of New Bethel Church Of God In Christ in Toledo in July 1985, where he still preaches. He was elevated to the office of Bishop in the church in 2011.
