Resourcing and mentoring pastors and pastors-in-training across Mozambique has been Jim’s passion since 1999. Jim is a professor at Xai-Xai Bible College and conducts seminars at churches. He has also produced water filters in Northern Mozambique. Previously, Jim pastored in New York for 10 years.

Karen is a professor at the Bible college and assists the Mozambican church in developing Sunday school, teaching, and organizational ideas that they can reproduce to equip and energize their local congregations. She has also taught at two missionary children’s schools.

Jim has a B.S. in pastoral ministry, Christian education, and missions. He received an M.A. in Christian education and missions. From 1988-1998 Jim pastored in New York in the Central New York and Eastern New York/New England Districts.

Karen (Kent) was born in Papua New Guinea to Wesleyan missionaries, Chuck and Linda Kent. She became a Christian at the age of five. Throughout her teen years she remained active in church ministry. During an altar call at Pace '86, Karen committed herself to go anywhere the Lord called her. Karen has a B.S. in Spanish and secondary education from Houghton College and an M.A. in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL).

Jim and Karen were married in 1989 and have two children: Carissa ('99) and Benjamin ('02).
