Welcome to Earl Palmer Ministries

Earl Palmer Ministries is based on I Thessalonians 5:11, to encourage and build up one another. These words from the Apostle Paul inspire this ministry of teaching, writing and mentoring.

About Earl Palmer

Rev. Earl Palmer has served in pastoral ministries at University Presbyterian Church in Seattle, Union Church in Manila, First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley, and The National Presbyterian Church in Washington, D.C. He has a commitment to expositional preaching of biblical texts. He has a strong interest in pursuing theological themes that are present in classic and contemporary literature, with particular focus on such authors as C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Karl Barth.  He is one of the most gifted teachers of the Bible, with a unique style that unfolds the text and allows the listener to make great discoveries. EPM exists so that this teacher can keep sharing his gift with the world.

Featured Resource: Something Happened That Changed My Life

Earl spoke on January 7th, 2018 during the worship service at University Presbyterian Church on Romans 12 and loving the other.

Worship the Lord

Worship is the response of ordinary people to the Grace of God and his faithfulness for all generations. This response can take place in the privacy of your own life and also in fellowship with others.
Hear Earl offer an expositional study of Psalm 100 on this theme at Word and Worship as well as two additional studies of Psalm 119 and Psalm 23.

Listen to Earl Palmer and hear his approach to unfolding a biblical text and experience the surround of music.


Earl has written hundreds of articles and newsletters in his years of ministry. We have digitized many of them and offer them on this site for you. Explore our vast library of written articles and sermons by Dr. Earl Palmer.

Teaching and Preaching

We here at Earl Palmer Ministries have been working to restore the functionality of our website so that more people can easily find relevant and powerful Earl Palmer sermons. We now have a database of over 1,000 sermons from Earl spanning 46 years of his preaching. All of Earl’s sermons and other seminars are now all in one place, and are easily searchable by book of the Bible, dates, sermon series, location and title!

Laity Lodge Retreat

Earl is returning to Laity Lodge in Kerrville, Texas to teach. He will be leading a conference from June 14th to June 17th, 2018.

His message at the conference is titled “The Power of Goodness for Such a Time as This”. He describes it as biblical reflections on the greatest commandment as the key to the meaning of the whole Law and the Prophets and will mostly focus on the Sermon on the Mount.

Founded by Howard Butt, Jr., in 1961, Laity Lodge has been welcoming guests to retreats designed to reawaken a sense of the sacred—the nearness and goodness of God in all of life—ever since.
