The Skit Guys
Tommy Woodard and Eddie James are The Skit Guys. They have been best friends since high school. Think of them as the wise guys in class who had everyone laughing and managed to make a career out of it. They’ve been teaching God’s word using comedy, drama and whatever category talking action figures fit into for over twenty years.
This group of Nashville musicians have come together under the leadership of David Gutekunst to humbly lift high the name of Jesus. Each individual in the YEC band actively serves and volunteers with their church worship team.
Aka – the YEC guy. This is Kent’s 20th year to coordinate YEC. Seven years ago, Kent and his family took a big step of faith and started a church in Middle Tennessee. Their church - Hope Fellowship; began as a simple Bible study in their living room. Kent is now full time pastor, and part time “YEC guy”. Kent is married to Shawnah, and dad to Jared, Maci, Molly, and Sarah.
