    Home » About Us » Pastors and Staff » Rev. Grant Palma
    Associate Pastor - Caring & ConnectingOffice: Room 2004 of the Family Life Center

    Role at First Church: 
    Associate Pastor: Evangelism/Connecting (including new members and Discover the Church), Pastoral Care, Compassion Ministries (including Stephen Ministry), Iron Men and Young Adults.

    Started on Staff: 
    July 2016

    Education/Background:
    I grew up in South Arkansas and East Texas. I graduated from LeTourneau University in Longview, Texas with a degree in Biblical Studies, and attended seminary at Perkins School of Theology where I received a M.Div.  I am an ordained elder, and previously served as an associate minister at Arlington Heights UMC in Fort Worth.  

    Family: 
    My wife, Samantha, works as an attorney for Allstate Corporation in Dallas. We have two dogs.    

    Favorite Scripture and why: 
    I have many favorites, but the passage that sticks out in my mind is the story of four friends lowering the paralytic through a roof to be healed by Jesus (Mark 2 or Luke 5).  Jesus honors the faithfulness, determination, and creativity of the individuals working together to help someone experience Jesus’ healing grace. 

    Favorite Movie: 
    North by Northwest, or any Hitchcock film. 

    What I like best about my ministry: 
    I love being present to witness God move in the hearts and minds of people from all walks of life.  I feel specifically called to lead the people of the congregation in sharing the love of Christ with one another.  I am passionate about leading the church in reaching out to the least, the last, and the lost both around the world and within the local community.  

    For fun I enjoy: 
    I race cars in a series called The 24 Hours of Lemons with some friends from college.  Each car has to be purchased and prepped for only $500, so we spend more time wrenching on our jalopy than racing. Aside from cars, I like to read crime novels, travel, and spend time with Samantha.
