Senior Pastor

Dr. Burt Palmer

I answered a call to ministry in 1985 and have served churches in Texas, Arkansas and North Carolina.  I started serving churches while in college.  I have been a volunteer Police Chaplain since 1998 in every place that we have lived and am currently a volunteer Chaplain with the Houston Police Department. I love seeing how the Holy Spirit transforms people’s lives when they respond the Christ.  My wife, Shawn, and I enjoy traveling to see their children and family.  I also enjoy golf. This is our picture at the Western Wall in Jerusalem. We love leading trips to the Holy Land!
