Mary Anne Kent
As a little girl, Mary Anne believed she would one day become a pastor's wife and missionary. When she fell in love with a tennis playing theology student at Oral Roberts University, the fulfillment of her childhood dream began. Trey and Mary Anne married in 1985 soon after her college graduation and began a life of ministry and adventure. Mary Anne enjoyed teaching school for 10 years until she decided to take her love of encouraging, equipping and motivating to the church where she joyfully serves in women's ministry. She also enjoys the opportunity to minister on worship teams, encourage pastors' wives, motivate women's groups and to share Jesus in any way, any place and with anyone God allows. She is blessed to have been married to her hero, sweetheart and best friend, Trey, for 25 years and is amazed and grateful to be the mother to two beautiful adult daughters, Lindsay and Christina.
