Pastor Kent Rice - Pastor of Outreach & Mission

Pastor Kent RiceKent Rice has been willing and eager to use his gifts to build the body of Christ at Hempfield COB.

Kent was called to this ministry through an overwhelming vote of our congregation on September 13th, 2009, and was licensed as our Pastor for Special Ministries on September 27th, 2009. In 2014 Kent became our Pastor of Outreach & Mission

Kent's heart for Christ has led him to found the East Petersburg Faith Outreach and to organize their first event entitled "Outbreak."

Kent has an engaging sense of humor, and a gift of encouragement. He lives with his wife, Karen, their two lovely daughters, Morgan and Kensey, and small flock of loved animals.


If anyone speaks,
he should do it
as one speaking
the very words of God.

If anyone serves,
he should do it with the strength God provides,
so that in all things
God may be praised through Jesus Christ.

To him
be the glory
and the power
for ever and ever.

1 Peter 4:11
