(Plain Press, June 2015) Members of the Franklin Circle Christian Church’s congregation joined with neighbors and friends on Sunday May 17th in offering best wishes to Pastor Allen V. Harris as he moves on to a new position as Regional Minister of the Disciples of Christ Christian Church Capital Area (serving 48 congregations in Maryland, Delaware, District of Columbia, Northern Virginia and West Virginia).

Harris came to Franklin Circle Christian Church 14 years ago as a Redevelopment Pastor and was asked to stay as revitalization took place. During that time period, Harris became involved in many organizations based in the Ohio City neighborhood and in the City of Cleveland. Pastor Harris was active in the Shared Ministry, District 2 Clergy, Inter Religious Task Force, Ohio City Human Resource Dialogue and the Advisory Council of Lutheran Hospital.

Pastor Harris was a supporter of the International Film Festival, the Cleveland Gay Games, and numerous community, arts, and social justice issues. Harris participated in and or chaired numerous committees and conferences within the Ohio Christian Church as well as adult and youth camps. Harris served on the Open and Affirming Ministries Program of the LGBT and Affirming Disciples Alliance.
