After graduating from PTS, she served as pastor of Central Presbyterian Church in Waxahachie, Texas, from 2008–2011.

She grew up in Longview, Texas, and received a B.A. in history from the University of Texas at Austin and an MBA from Southern Methodist University in Dallas. Kent organizes women’s and discipleship ministries at Valley Presbyterian Church in Madison, Alabama.  She also works for the Fellowship of Presbyterians (FOP) and ECO as the mission affinity group director. In addition to serving on the AAEC, she serves on the board of the FOP and ECO and on the Synod Executive Committee of ECO.

“I'm most thankful for the relationships that God brought into my life during my time at PTS. Also, walking into the library or around campus when the fall colors are in full force remind me of the blessing and the gift of PTS and how God used so many brilliant scholars and eager classmates to teach me to think theologically. Romans 12:2 comes to mind when I think of my time at PTS, ‘Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.’”
