Pastor James Kent


Pastor Jim grew up in Tucson, AZ.  After graduating from UCLA in 1986, he was commissioned in the USAF and stationed at F.E. Warren AFB, WY.  He met his wife Shauna there and married in 1990.  As their family grew they were stationed at Wright-Patterson AFB, OH, Schriever AFB, CO, NSWC Dahlgren, VA, and several locations in Washington D.C. area until he retired in 2011.  They have two grown children, Chase and Leta, who live in Virginia.  Pastor Jim entered the Seminary in 2012 and had a wonderful vicarage experience at Concordia Lutheran Church in Conover, NC.  He is excited to follow God’s desires in His Call to serve First Lutheran Church and the community in Southern Maryland.  May the Peace of Christ be with you all!
