Bishop's Schedule

The Bishop's schedule as displayed is not comprehensive. Every meeting in which the Bishop is involved is not listed. Some days are blocked out for study and preparation, sabbath and travel and may not appear on this schedule. The Bishop seeks to respond to invitations that advance the mission of The United Methodist Church and reflect the mission and diversity of the Annual Conference.

If you wish to invite the Bishop to preach/teach at your church or event, his preference is to receive your invitation on your church letterhead. It may be attached to an email addressed to Nancy Riley, Executive Secretary to the Bishop, at nriley [at] Invitations that come via text message will not be considered.

Please know that Bishop Palmer typically does not make a decision on a particular date sooner than six months ahead of the requested date. If a decision can be made sooner, we will be certain to let you know. If you have any questions or need other information, you are welcome to contact Nancy by nriley [at] (email )or by phone at either 614.844.6200 extension 215 or toll free at 1.800.437.0028 extension 215. Check back periodically to note changes and to keep Bishop Palmer and his ministry among us in your prayers.
