Today, Kent has been serving as a full-time minister for over 50 years. He has a wide fan following around the globe and has over 74k followers on his Facebook page as of November 2021.
Struggles of Starting Church
After preaching for over 25 years across the United States and overseas, Kent made several failed attempts to set up his ministry. Finally, Kent started the church after hearing a word from God that said, "start a church."
"Obedience to God's word started humbly the next Sunday morning with 4 in attendance. But God is not interested in where we start. He's interested in where we finish," Kent said.
He struggled for many years trying to start and operate a church. He preached only two people during his first service but continued following the path that God told him.
After years of struggles, Kent and his wife, Candy Christmas, founded Regeneration Nashville in Nashville, Tennessee, in November 2007. Regeneration Nashville was originally named Resting Place Church. However, after a decade, they changed the name of the church. Kent is currently focussing on strengthening the Church Body.
Pastor Kent also has a YouTube channel called Prophetic Message, where he posts different prophecy videos. He started the channel in August 2020 and has over 158k subscribers and 48 million views as of February 2022.
Pastor Kent Christmas's birthday falls on 21 June, and he is currently in his late 60s. His father was a missionary to the American Indians who raised him on Indian reservations. Growing up, Kent was exposed to a lot of spiritual warfare in church, but he believed he also witnessed God's miracles at the time.
In an interview with Lake City Pentecostal Holiness Church (LCPH) in June 2020, Kent recalled, "There was a mixture of Catholicism and witchcraft in church and so we saw a lot of manifestations and the powers of darkness and yet we saw God do great things."
Kent received the baptism at the age of nine. He said that being raised in the church developed his ability for prayer.
