Born and raised in the home of a California pastor, Jana Allard fully understands the various roles of ministry.  She attended schools in her hometown of Delano and Bakersfield College studying Child Development.  It was at the young age of two that Jana first sang in church and a life of singing was born.  Throughout the years, she participated in youth camp choirs, sang at fellowship meetings, conferences, and eventually directed camp and conference choirs, taught vocal classes, worked with Western All-State Youth Choir teaching stage presentation, listening to auditions, and vocal coaching. 
In 1979, she married Brian Allard and they moved to Senegal, West Africa to serve as UPCI missionaries.   Following their time spent in Africa, they returned to California and joined the pastoral staff of Apostolic Gospel Church of Delano in February 1982.  In April of 1994, they assumed the role of senior pastor and wife to a multi-cultural, revival-minded congregation.
