Rodney Skyles was born in Shreveport, La., and graduated from Huntington High School. He graduated from Louisiana Tech University with a B.S. in Finance. After graduation, Rodney worked for Willis Knighton Health System before moving to the Fort Worth area for about 10 years. In 2000, Rodney moved back to Tyler and met his wife, Katrina. They have two beautiful children, Henry Ryder and Ansley Kate.
Rodney enjoys mountain biking, hiking, orienteering, and pretty much any competitive sport. His family loves to travel and spend time together. They attend Sylvania Church in Tyler where Rodney serves as an elder and teaches The College and Young Adults class. He is also President of Effects of Grace Ministries, Inc. Effects of Grace is a small non-profit that helps encourage and train pastors around the world.
One of Rodney’s favorite verses, “And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing,” 2 Corinthians 4:3 (NASB95)
Rodney loves working at Encouragement FM (KVNE/KGLY) because of the close family atmosphere, as well as the amazing opportunity to reach so many with the message that they can be made right with the Creator of the universe through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
Rodney started working at Encouragement FM in May of 2016, two weeks before graduating from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary with a Masters of Divinity degree.
