From the wilds of western Pennsylvania, God called the Rev. Allison T. Bauer to Second Pres in Portsmouth, OH in April 2016. 


After graduating from Grove City College in 2001, she earned her Master of Divinity degree from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary in 2005. 


From March 2006-March 2016, Allison served as the Pastor of the Frankfort Presbyterian Church in Hookstown, PA. As a member of Beaver-Butler Presbytery, she served on many committees as well as Moderator of the Presbytery in 2014. 


Recently, her Seminary alma mater awarded her "The Fred McFeeley Rogers Award for Creative Ministry" which included this lovely plaque and her very own Mr. Rogers' style canvas sneakers! (pictured to the right)


In 2017, she was elected President of the Scioto County Ministry which oversees "Operation Safety Net" (the county's homeless shelter) and West End Child Care Center, which provides affordable child care for families. In 2018, she joined the Board of the Portsmouth Wind Symphony. 


You can often find Pastor Allison walking her dog Rocky up and down Coles Boulevard (feel free to honk!), hiking and taking photos, reading, acting as Commissioner of her family's fantasy football league, or hanging out at "Coffee at the Lofts" for Open Office Hours Thursdays from 9-10:30am. Stop by and say HI!
