Currently, Kent is beginning his 18th year in ministry serving as the Senior Life Pastor at Thomas Road Baptist Church in Lynchburg, Virginia. Kent enjoys teaching and preaching, visiting and simply loving people. I love to share the Gospel with others and develop relationships with them.
I am a life-long learner. I believe that learning is important to keeping one informed and able to communicate within the generations. I am enrolled in the Doctor of Ministry program at Liberty University in the Leadership Cognate. I hold a Master of Divinity from the Samuel D. Proctor School of Theology at Virginia Union University, a Master of Business Administration from Averett University and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Longwood University.
