Lon Allison is a Christian communicator, evangelist, professor, pastor and performing artist who has served as a youth minister, pastor of three churches, a denominational and parachurch leader, and as a guest speaker at churches and conferences the world over for the last 30 years. He has published two books and numerous articles on topics of evangelism, spiritual formation, preaching, church growth and leadership.

Lon and his family (wife - Marie, daughters – Tara and Courtney, son – Eric) reside in West Chicago, Illinois. His aspiration is to be faithful to his family as lover, provider, spiritual guide, and fun-loving friend.

Lon enjoys many fitness ventures. He is an amateur mountain climber, marathon runner and weight lifter, and has fun boating with his family. He also loves to ride his Honda American Classic motorcycle, while singing songs from the 1960s and 1970s.

He has served as Director of the Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College for the last 9 years. There he directs a comprehensive team that seeks to Stimulate Global Evangelism through its eleven departments and institutes. He is also Associate Professor of Evangelism and Leadership at Wheaton College Graduate School and adjunct faculty at North Park Theological Seminary, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Fuller Theological Seminary and Regent College in Vancouver, BC.

Lon has published two books: Going Public with the Gospel and That the World May Believe, a brief biography of John R. Mott. He also has published numerous articles and serves as co-publisher of Lausanne World Pulse, a monthly online global magazine for evangelism and missions leaders. He also has a professional background in music and theater, as a professional actor and musician, with credits on stage and television. His presentations to churches and conferences often combine speaking, music, and drama in an informative and compelling way.

Lon serves as a member of several boards and committees, including the U.S. Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization, the National Prayer Committee, Belhaven College, North Park Seminary, Media Voice Generation and others. He also participates as a member of Dr. Leighton Ford’s Point Group, which is a team of 12 evangelism leaders from around the world.

Lon has a heart for the unchurched person. Converted at age 17 and not involved in a church until age 20, he remembers what it is to be outside of Christ and the Church. His pastorates were new churches whose philosophy of ministry was first and foremost to reach unchurched people with the message of new birth. Today, he brings a history of those experiments: the successes and sorrows, the achievements and the mistakes, and most of all an increasing confidence that God wants lost people found and will use every Christian to do it.
