Within every little girl is found a spark of God’s tenderness and creativity. Added to her beauty and gentleness, each girl’s heart is shaped to determine how she will respond as a young woman to life, others and ultimately to God.
Even as a young girl, Laura Allred was uniquely tender to the heart of God. Before the age of 10, her heart broke deeply for the unborn babies who had lost their lives through abortion. In 3rd grade, amdist spelling and math, she was a passionate evangelist to her classmates. It was clear that her heart was being shaped to carry her Father’s heart.
Longing to see her peers live with freedom and purpose, Laura began Standard Bearers International and Captured in 2004, which are reaching this emerging generation with the Father’s message of holiness and passion while cultivating a grassroots reformation of society. Her unique influence to gather, inspire and mobilize others does not stop there.
Laura has had the honor of preaching all over the U.S. and in over a dozen nations around this beautiful earth! Carrying a mandate to encourage her generation to a higher standard, she shares her message with transparency, passion and conviction. Laura communicates with a humor and a vulnerability that disarms and inspires change.
With a divine directive for multi-generational ministry, she has served under and received the blessings from such ministers as Cindy Jacobs (Generals International), Doug Stringer (Somebody Cares and Turning Point Ministries International), Lou Engle (The Call) and Nicky Cruz (Nicky Cruz Outreach).
She enjoys time at the spa, fishing and long walks holding her husband’s hand. This city-girl is proud of the fact that she has recently become an organic gardener! Laura and her husband Gabriel, who serves as the worship leader at Christ for the Nations Institute, live in Cedar Hill, Texas.
“Standard Bearers is a ministry with a passion to raise up young leaders who will release righteousness, holiness and purity into their generation. Laura Allred lives this message in and through her own life.”
- Cindy Jacobs, Generals International

- Lou Engle, The Call

Those who receive her ministry will sense the substance of Christ and the cry of a generation, an impartation that comes through her character.”
