Kennon Bridges new Marketing Director for Trinity Mission

Kennon Bridges always knew he wanted to be involved with helping people. Being a pastor’s son gave him an insight into people’s needs and the opportunity to visit nursing homes, see his father help the residents and help enrich their lives. It was just natural that he would choose working in the health care field as his career, what better way to help people. And his position of director of marketing is a perfect fit at Trinity Mission.
