Judi Skonieczny

Administrative Assistant

judi@wtgn.org



Judi was born in West Virginia but grew up in a suburb of Cleveland, OH. She met Jesus as a pre-teen but really got serious about her walk with Christ when He challenged her to “rock the boat” as a senior at Ohio State University.

She has 3 fabulous guys in her life: her husband Ken, and 2 sons, Josh and Jon. She was active in the local homeschoolers support group for many years. She also works with the youth at her church and serves as the church librarian. She says that she loves the opportunities God has given her at work and at church, to plant seeds for Christ.

God has used Proverbs 3:5-6 to guide her since her teen years and He daily walks with her. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.”
