What Others Are Saying

Meeting and making new friends is one of the most fun and meaningful aspects of the work I do!  The great thing about new friends is that they become old friends, helping to shape the person I am becoming.  Here are a few of the kind words I’ve received as I’ve traveled and shared.  If you’re interested in booking me for a concert, reading, camp, or event, check out the “contact” tab!  I’d love to start dreaming and planning how we might partner together.

“Tim has been an incredible blessing to the campers & staff of Camp Peniel. As a speaker for our high school camps, teacher for our discipleship program, & as our friend he has used God’s Word to paint a beautiful picture of the character of our Heavenly Father & what He desires for us as His beloved children. He intentionally pursues the campers & students, learns their names & asks to hear their stories. Because Tim has humbly taken the time to form a relationship with those he teaches, he speaks to them on a personal level in ways that specifically apply & relate to where they are in life. It is refreshing to hear the gospel presented to young people in a way that is not self-centered. Instead, Tim has challenged us all to grow in our understanding of God’s love that we might become love to the world around us for His glory & for His Kingdom.”

– Jenny Blackmon, Summer Director, Camp Peniel, Marble Falls, TX

“As long as I’ve been a youth pastor, I’ve never asked the same D-NOW speaker to come back, until I met Tim. The students request him every year, and I happily oblige. While Tim is an incredibly thoughtful, creative and truthful speaker and storyteller, these are not the reasons we ask him to return year after year. It is in his ability to form genuine and lasting relationships with both students and adults. He is not just our weekend speaker, but he has become part of our family.”

– Walker McWilliams, Youth Pastor, First Baptist Church, Lufkin, TX

“Thank you so much for performing at our concert Tuesday night. While not outdoors, I think the event was a tremendous gift for our community, and something we needed. We couldn’t know ahead of time what good timing it would be, but I think it came at just the right moment. Thank you for sharing your gifts, sharing your thoughtful words and generosity, and allowing us to take our minds off of the recent events for a moment. I think my six year old son said it best…on the way home, he said, “I’ve never heard a band that played so lovingly.”

–  Tim Whelsky, Asst. Dean of Student Affairs, Harvard Divinity School, Cambridge, MA

About Timothy

The son of missionaries who spent his earliest years living in the West Bank and on the island of Cyprus, Timothy Palmer is a singer/songwriter, poet, and speaker who currently lives in Abilene, TX with his wife, Erin, and their three children, Aubrey, Elijah, and Quinn. Formerly, Timothy served as the Assistant Chaplain at McMurry University, and is the founder of RE: Ministries, a not-for-profit organization that is dedicated to joining God in rebuilding, restoring, and renewing what’s been lost, devastated, and abandoned.  A passionate communicator, Timothy has spent much of the last  decade traveling, learning from, and sharing with others on this journey of faith. Whether he’s performing music at Harvard Divinity School, preaching in the Sacramento mountains of New Mexico, or sitting around the living room with high school students during a weekend retreat, the message is always the same: when we begin to live our lives from Love rather than working for Love, compassion begins to displace judgement, we realize our kinship with all humanity, and, together, we begin to heal.

Timothy is the author of Re: Memos on Faith and Life, a month-long devotional book that includes reflections on art, beauty, doubt, and hope. He has recorded two albums of original music, The Breeze, and his latest offering, The Half-Boy EP, which was released in 2015. Comprised of 6 songs, The Half-Boy is a multi-faceted exploration of the kinship of all humanity that incorporates original art and creative storytelling.

For this project, Palmer teamed up with the members of The Digital Age, who produced and recorded the EP in their Waco studio, marking a sharp departure from Palmer’s early DIY approach to the recording process.

“Everyone has experienced feelings of isolation and loneliness, heartbreak and disappointment, and these songs were birthed out of my own journey toward a sense of wholeness. As the record began to take shape, we wanted every detail of this album to move people toward themselves and toward one another and toward the Love that binds us all together. The heart of the album is really summed up in the final refrain of the last track, ‘Welcome home. All is forgiven. All is well…’”
