Pastor Kent and his family have come to us from Tennessee as Senior Pastor on January 21, 2018.  Pastor Jon's heart is to see people accept Christ as Lord and follow Him with their lives in discipleship.

Jon has served as a youth Pastor for nearly twelve years.  While in his ministry as a Youth Pastor, Jon began noticing God's changing of his heart and with that leading, Jon began pursuing the truth of His leading and the overall vision for a local church.  A month later after the Kent family stepped out in faith to accept the call to full time pulpit ministry.

Jon is a graduate of Liberty University and Andersonville Seminary.  Pictured are his wife Krista and their two daughters Merci and Karis.

Pastor Kent likes cars, woodworking, playing his guitars and spending time with his family.
