Before becoming the Interim Pastor at Corona Congregational Church, Rev. Palmore served as the Worship Director for The Riverside Church and as the Program Coordinator for The Women’s and Arts Ministries at Marble Collegiate Church.

A musician at heart, Rev. Palmore is the Assistant Director for The Ebony Ecumenical Ensemble and arranger/writer for the praise vocal group VOCÉ (Voices of Christ Ensemble). As a singer/songwriter/arranger, Rev. Palmore’s choral arrangements have been performed nationwide and abroad. His arrangement “O Mary”, an adaptation of the Spiritual “Glory to the New Born King”, was recorded by the Riverside Choir it’s Christmas CD, “Behold, the Star,” and his arrangement of the spiritual “Deep River” has just been recorded by The  Ebony Ecumenical Ensemble.  His first publication of his arrangement of the Negro Spiritual, “My Lord, What A Mornin’ ” will become available through GIA Publishers in the fall.

Rev. Palmore is a poet whose works have been published in local and national publications. He is currently working on publishing a collection of his poetry. Rev. Palmore is the proud father of one son, Sekani.

If there is a scripture that fortifies his ministry it is the simple but profound saying of Jesus in Gethsemane – “Not my will but thine be done.” Most of all, he is proud to be a servant called by God to help bring about shalom and God’s beloved community.
