Allen Farley

Coordinator of Food Ministries

Allen Farley

I grew up in the Charlotte NC area and relocated to Beaufort in 1987. My wife Nancy and I have been married since 1991 and we have been members of Carteret Street UMC since June of 1995. We raised our two daughters; Zoe and Samantha at Carteret.

I served in the South Carolina Army National Guard with five years active duty for almost 42 years and I worked as a federal military technician for 29 years.

Upon retiring in May of 2020, I attended culinary school at the Culinary Institute of the South at the Technical College of the Lowcountry and graduated in May 2023 with an Associate of Science in Culinary Arts. In addition, I have an Associate in Industrial Technology/HVA that I received in 1992.

As the current Coordinator of Food Ministries since July 2022, I am responsible for the preparation of the meal on Wednesdays Night Fellowship gathering as well as the many special events taking place at Carteret. I like working here because it gives me the opportunity to be creative with meal planning and try new recipes.
