The Rev. Sherman Allen used to pastor a church called Shiloh Institutional COGIC up until he became one of the main defendants in a highly publicized sexual abuse case.
The Evangelical Christian Credit Union had sought permission to foreclose on Allen’s Woodhaven property in 2007. Eventually, Allen’s church was foreclosed and the property put up for sale. A (recently removed) sign on the door of the church asked people to join them at their new location at 1100 West Randol Mill Road in Arlington. The church is located just west of the new Cowboys Stadium.
Allen and Shiloh Church are defendants in a slew of breach of contract lawsuits:
Despite all of that (and an upcoming trial), Allen appears to have found a new home and renamed his church, Christ Cathedral Church.
The new church located at 1100 West Randol Mill Road in Arlington is valued at 1.2 million dollars. The building is currently the home of the Creative Arts Theatre, but an employee of the school said that Allen was leasing from them and that it may sell within a year. Judging from pictures, Allen is already in control of things.
Here’s a before Sherman Allen:
And after Sherman Allen:
Its odd that any business would allow a leasing entity to have a higher profile than itself, but as you can see Christ Cathedral’s name is plastered (permanent signs) all over the building.
Not bad for a man who’s declared bankruptcy.
