Kingsley Skinner


Before settling back home in Louisiana, I lived in the oil patches of Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas. I went to high school in Covington, married Wanda in 1979, served in the USAF in Denver, and returned home to Covington in 1983. I was called to Christ in the summer of 1984 and have been following Jesus ever since. Wanda and I became members of Trinity Church shortly after the turn of the 21st century. We have five grown children—Jenni, Mike, Jon, Bonnie, and Joe—and eight grandchildren—Vann, Daisey, Kingsley, Zane, Bowen, Paxton, Lewis, and Rhett. I am now ready to answer the call to serve Trinity Church in new ways.
