I can’t explain it, yet even as a young boy that desire was very real to me. As a twelve year old boy, I surrendered my life to the ministry at Miracles Acres Youth Camp. I believed I yielded my life to the will of God to be a preacher at that point. No doubt the influence of my grandfather, Dr. George Palmer, and my father, Rev. Jack Palmer, who were both preachers, had a great influence on my life.
Throughout my teenage years, and during a year of Bible college at Pensacola Christian College, I received good training and valuable experience in the ministry. While I was a senior in high school, the ministry of revival became a great personal love through the life-changing impact of a month-long revival crusade in our church.
In June of 1980, I joined my father as his assistant pastor and youth director at Calvary Independent Baptist Church in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania. For nine very blessed and wonderful years, we served the Lord together. It was during this time that my wife, Patty, and I became acquainted. We were married in 1983 and completed our ministry at Calvary in July of 1989. In September of that same year, we committed ourselves to begin our revival and evangelistic ministry.
In recent years, we have conducted numerous revival meetings in churches, Christian schools and camps. It remains our desire to see God continue to work in reviving the hearts and lives of His people. We count it a great privilege and blessing to be a part of what God is doing across America and around the world.
"Revival is a community saturated with God, a church consumed with God, and a believer filled with God. That is what Palmer Revival Ministries is all about. Though our nation has likely passed the point of no return in so many ways, there is no point of no revival. It is often in the context of desperate days that God intervenes, drawing people to Himself and manifesting His presence in unprecedented ways. It is with that focus that we preach and pray. An encounter with God is an exceptional meeting with God that produces extraordinary results. As long as God is still God, revival is still possible. We are praying that our generation will meet with God in a way that will impact our nation for God."
