Mallory Brooks, Director of Communications + Administration

Mallory was raised in Memphis, Tennessee, which easily explains her deep love of food & music. She attended the University of Tennessee, where she majored in Child and Family Studies. In 2013, she moved to Greenville to work with Reformed University Fellowship at Furman University and has been in Greenville ever since.

Mallory keeps things running at G&P—sending emails, scheduling events, and paying attention to all the little things. When she’s not working, she’s likely reading a novel, trying a new recipe, or enthusing about something she recently read on the internet.

MaryFran is a lover of Jesus, her family, and guacamole. She grew up in Austin, TX, but went to college at "the other UT" in Knoxville, TN, where she met her husband, Will. They have moved quite a bit in their marriage, but are happy to be back in Greenville and especially thankful for the community of Grace and Peace.

Jonathan Allston, pastoral intern

Jonathan's greatest regret in life is that he has not learned to speak French despite spending the first 11 years of his life in the francophone nation of Togo, West Africa. He redeemed himself by marrying well. He and his wife, Lacey, have two young children (Robert and Lila) with the third (Wesley) arriving circa May 2019. Fluency in French remains on Jonathan's bucket list. Jonathan's education credentials include a MA from Wheaton College (IL) and four years of college in northern Wisconsin that were the basis of the film, The Revenant. 

When not on intern duty, Jonathan works for a software company as a technical writer. In his free time he enjoys reading, non-technical writing, and Clemson football, but most of his energies go toward trying to learn to be a husband and a dad and trying with little success to win a few board/card games against his wife.

In keeping with the intern standards of conduct, Jonathan enjoys coffee and beer and would gladly have either with you. Contact Jonathan at jonathan.allston@gmail.com.
