They both are graduates of Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary. Kent graduated from the United Methodist related Southwestern College in Winfield, KS.

On a personal note, Kent is a fan of the Kansas City Chiefs and the University of Kansas basketball. One fun fact, is that Kent was born on the same day as the United Methodist Church! Kent is excited to begin this shared adventure!
