About Curtis D Trent
Curtis Trent comes from a long line of Southwest Missourians, with his first ancestor arriving in the area before the Civil War. Born in Springfield, Curtis grew up on a small farm near Ava. Curtis has attended the Church of Christ for his entire life and was baptized into the Church during his early teenage years.

As a Christian Curtis recognizes the importance of making sure that our nation's laws never interfere with a person's ability to worship Jesus in every walk of life, not just on Sunday.
