David Skidmore was elected superintendent of the Canada Atlantic District on 31 May 2024. Skidmore currently serves as the chaplain of Calgary Remand Centre, a correctional facility in Alberta, Canada.

"This has become a 'full circle' moment for Peggy and I," David said. "We were both saved and sanctified in churches on this District. We met at Nazarene Youth camps on this District. We attended Canadian Nazarene College while supported by this District. Our children were born on this District. We pastored and planted churches on Canada Atlantic District. And after serving 27 years on other Canadian Districts — whom we love and cherish — Jesus has brought us home again. We are delighted. We glorify Him." 

David replaces Mark Collins, who has served as superintendent of the Canada Atlantic District since 2018. Collins has assumed the role of national director for Canada.

David holds a bachelor’s degree in theology from Canadian Nazarene College (now Ambrose University) and a Doctor of Ministry from Nazarene Theological Seminary.

He has served as a pastor across multiple districts in Canada.

He pastored Bay Roberts Church of the Nazarene in Newfoundland (1985-1988), Freetown Church of the Nazarene in Prince Edward Island (1989-1992), Amherst Community Mission in Nova Scotia (1992-1998), Markham Impact Church of the Nazarene in Ontario (1998-2003), Medicine Hat Cowboy Church of the Nazarene (2005-2008) and Medicine Hat Glenview Church of the Nazarene (2003-2013), both in Alberta. He most recently pastored Family Life Church of the Nazarene in Alberta from 2013-2022. He has served as a chaplain at Calgary Remand Centre since 2020.

David and his wife, Peggy, reside in Airdrie, Alberta, Canada.
