Our Pastors

Pastor Kent

Pastor Kent was born in Decatur, Illinois, grew up in Long Island, New York, and accepted the Lord at age 10 on New Year’s Eve, 1981. Kent and Tara were childhood sweethearts, but during high school Kent’s family moved away and the long distance “relationship” failed to last. It was during their year at Word of Life Bible Institute that Kent and Tara’s interest in each other was rekindled, and the rest is history! They were married on July 20, 1991, after their sophomore year at Liberty University.


Kent and Tara first visited Heritage soon after they were married. They fell in love with the people, the worship services, and the opportunities to get involved, and they never visited another church in the area. Kent came on staff as HBC’s interim youth pastor in February 1998. Pastor Kent oversees the Word of Life youth programs for grades 7-12, and actively disciples students in their faith. Currently, the youth ministry averages around 160 teens at the two weekly services! Kent is so thankful for a church family that makes the youth feel a part of the church body and encourages them to use their gifts for the Lord. Tara serves as Kent’s Ministry Assistant and is a vital part of his ministry to the teens. The Gregorys have two teenage children, Kelsey and Jason.
