Ryan Palmer

Senior Pastor

ryan Ryan began serving as our Senior Pastor in 2009. This call is a homecoming for Ryan as he interned and served as Assistant Pastor at South Haven from 1995-1998. Prior to his return to South Haven, Ryan served as Pastor at First Baptist Church, Neosho, Missouri for eight years.

Raised in Joplin, Missouri, Ryan is a graduate of Southwest Baptist University (BA), Southwestern Seminary (MDIV) and is completing the Doctor of Ministry degree through Midwestern Seminary.

Ryan and his wife Paula have two children, Addison and Hayes..

Ryan's only shortcoming is that he is a Chicago Cubs fan. He does, however, enthusiastically cheer for and support the Springfield Cardinals!
