Meet our Pastor, Our Elders & The Rest of our leadership Team


Hello! My name is David Skinner and I am the Senior Pastor at The River of Life Church. My wife Gena and I met at Texas Tech while attending the Trinity Church College Group, and we recently celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary in December. We have 4 awesome children: Maegan and Andrew Meynig live in Leander, where Maegan teaches high school math and Andrew is a property manager. Alyssa will graduate in May from St. Edwards University in Austin. Our youngest, Reece is a sophomore track athlete at Texas Tech. We have been in ministry for over 30 years and are excited about this new chapter in our life. We have spent the past 25 years in the Austin/San Antonio area sharing the truth of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit in several United Methodist Churches. I am looking forward to humbly serve as your pastor. I firmly believe that God has amazing things in store for The River and we are excited to get to be a part of it.
