LeRoy “Skip” Smith

Pastor LeRoy “Skip” Smith faithfully taught God’s Word on KHCB for 57 years. He began his weekly program, “Prayertime” on Friday mornings a few months after KHCB went on the air in 1962. During that time Pastor Smith was the senior pastor at several Houston area churches and then served 22 years as an Assistant Pastor at Sagemont Church until he retired from full time ministry a couple of years ago. Last year Pastor Smith and his wife, Anita, moved to the Dallas area to live near their family.

Pastor Smith was born July 26, 1926 in Henderson, NC and went home to be with the Lord on Sunday April 19, 2020. He was 93 years old. He is survived by his wife Anita, his daughter Susan, son Craig, five grandchildren and nine great grandchildren. Pastor Smith’s favorite Scripture was Proverbs 3:5,6. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all of your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. “(NASB) Pastor Smith lived out these verses as He trusted and followed the Lord’s leading in his ministry and personal life.
