Kent Christmas has been in full time ministry for over 35 years, traveling extensively across the United States and abroad. He has been a featured guest on the 700 Club many times, sharing prophetically the direction that God has given him for the church. Originally from the state of Washington, he pastored for many years, developing a love and deep compassion for God’s people and local church. In the late 1980’s he felt the lord leading him to full time evangelism, and began ministering in denominational and inter-denominational churches alike.
The ministry of Kent Christmas is to strengthen the local church body and to share prophetic insight. He is a man of prayer and carries an anointing to preach the word with the demonstration of apostolic power.
In 1987 Kent Christmas married Candy Hemphill of a southern gospel family, The Hemphills. She has appeared many times on the Gaither Gospel videos and has many recordings to her credit. She has recently joined in ministry with her husband in a greater capacity, and will be present with him as much as possible, as her schedule allows.
