Light for the Lost provides evangelistic resources for missionaries and missionary partners through five platforms: print, audio, video, internet technologies, and apps.
Rick Allen serves as the national director of Men's Ministries and Light for the Lost (LFTL).

Appointed as the national Men's Ministries director in January 2016, Rick is assembling a strategic team and discipleship pathway for men of all backgrounds and spiritual growth levels.

He also served as a U.S. Missionary with Book of Hope USA, the Arkansas District, and the Assemblies of God National Office (2001-2014). Rick held senior pastorates at churches in Arkansas and Tennessee and held youth pastorates in Texas, Arkansas, and Tennessee. During his youth pastorate in Tennessee, he also served on the National Child Services Agency for the United States Senate.
