Pastor Kessia Reyne Bennett is a PNW native, raised in a non-religious family. At age 13 she came to know Christ and became a follower of Jesus. A year later she was baptized and officially joined the worldwide fellowship of Seventh-day Adventists.

Theology immediately became a passion of hers, and her service in lay ministry started right away. At age 19 her local church sent her to study for the ministry. During her studies she met Joshua who became her husband, and they now have two girls together. 

Kessia Reyne has served in churches very large and very small, on college campuses, in Conference work, and in academia. She loves telling people the very good news of what God has done in Christ. “I’m grateful for God’s love and leading throughout my life,” says Kessia Reyne, “and grateful to be in ministry with my family.”
