Geneva Association DOM McAllister to retire after four decades at helm

For more than 39 years, Dicky McAllister has been driving the roads of Geneva County, visiting its churches and offering them support. And he currently holds the title in Alabama for longest-serving DOM at the same association.

But on June 15, he will close the door on his season as director of missions for Geneva Baptist Association.

“We started in 1981 in the living room of our home on Academy Street with only $3,000 in the bank. But God quickly blessed us, and we were able to open the office on Main Street in Hartford,” McAllister wrote in his column in the May 28 TAB local edition for Geneva Association.

“As the ministry grew, God opened doors to move into an even larger office with a chance to host missionaries, speakers and conferences and to eventually begin the thrift store ministry.”
