Carol Kent

A new world class Christian speaker, Carol Kent was secured in record time. A process that usually takes 2-3 months. God is Great. All the Time!


Martha Williamson had to cancel due to an illness. Our prayers go out to her for complete healing. We will miss hearing Martha’s message but are so blessed to have Carol Kent step in to be our Prayer Breakfast speaker this year. Carol Kent has been involved with Women of Faith Tour, Focus on the Family, Women of Joy, Billy Graham Prime Time TV Special, Dateline NBC, CNN LIVE, Deborah Norville Tonight on MSNBC, In Touch with Charles Stanley, among many others.  See her Bio below…


“When I Lay My Isaac Down is a book about the worst pain that a parent could ever experience and the grace of God that sustains us when that pain never goes away. Carol Kent has laid open her broken heart and proven that triumph can exist in tragedy.”

Dr. David Jeremiah, Founder, Turning Point Ministries


“Carol has faithfully laid down her life for the gospel. And now, God has asked her to lay down her most precious treasure—her only son. Today, Carol has come away from the altar gloriously transformed…so will you.”

Kathy Troccoli, Author, Speaker, Recording Artist, Nashville, TN 


“Going into a conference led by Carol Kent is like walking into a highly charged magnetic field. It is exciting! Things are popping! And you have to keep moving!..It is more than energy and enthusiasm; it is a deep-rooted faith in God as revealed in Jesus Christ.”

Dr. Nell Mohney, Author & Speaker, Chattanooga, Tennessee
