Pastors & Staff

Trey Kent

Senior Pastor

Trey started Northwest Fellowship in 1993 and has been in full-time ministry since 1986. He has a Masters of Divinity from Oral Roberts University and did Doctor of Ministry work at Fuller Seminary. His passions are Jesus, prayer and his family. He is the proud husband of Mary Anne and the grateful father of daughters Lindsay, Christina and son-in-law, Nick, and doting Grandfather to two amazing grandsons Samuel and Levi. In 2009, God led Trey to launch the Unceasing Prayer Movement mobilizing churches to pray 24/7 for unity and revival in Austin, Texas!  Today about 100 churches pray 24/7 for Austin to be transformed. Trey wrote Revival Cry: Contending for Transformation in this Generation and City of Prayer (co-authored with Dr. Kie Bowman).

Mary Anne Kent

Women's Ministry

As a little girl, Mary Anne believed she would one day become a pastor's wife and missionary. When she fell in love with a tennis playing theology student in college, the fulfillment of her childhood dream began. Trey and Mary Anne married in 1985 soon after her college graduation and began a life of ministry and adventure. This adventure brought them to Austin in 1993 where they planted and continue to serve at Northwest Fellowship. Mary Anne enjoyed teaching school for many years until she decided to take her love of encouraging, equipping and motivating to the church where she joyfully serves in women's ministry. She also enjoys the opportunity to minister on worship and prayer teams, encourage pastors' wives, motivate women's groups, and share Jesus in any way, any place and with anyone God allows. She is blessed to have been married to her hero, sweetheart and best friend, Trey, for 35 years and is amazed and grateful to be the mother to two beautiful adult daughters, Lindsay and Christina, the proud mother-in-law to Christina's husband, Nick and the ‘over-the-moon-in-love” grandmother to Samuel David and Levi John.

Nick Gamez

Youth and Young Adults Pastor

Nick is a born and raised Texas boy. From Abilene to Beaumont, and finally to the great city of Austin, TX, Nick has been on a journey for a real life-changing experience. After a long battle of waging war in the world, God led Nick to Northwest to find that life-changing experience, Jesus! After being radically changed and experiencing Jesus in the truest way, Nick ran hard after God with the calling of leadership and encouragement. On the way, God saw that Nick should not continue down this path alone and put in his life the next best thing other than Jesus, his beautiful, encouraging, strong wife Christina. It was love at first sight (for Nick at least). Nick and Christina have been married for six years and have two wonderful boys, Samuel and Levi. He graduated from Dallas Baptist University with a degree in Christians Ministries and Biblical Studies. Nick leads the young adult and youth groups with a passion for prayer, worship, reading God’s word and great community.

When Christina is not serving at NWF, she is an elementary teacher at a local school district. Christina is a proud graduate from Texas A&M University and she loves routing for the Aggies! Christina loves spending time with her amazing husband, Nick and 2 sweet sons, Samuel and Levi.

At NWF KiDS we believe God puts children at a high place in His heart and we want our children to know God’s heart for them.
