David Palmer

Born in Saskatchewan, David Palmer began a broadcast career at the early age of fifteen. It was during this tenure at CFCW Camrose, that David was first introduced to the radio broadcast of the World Tomorrow. The program was actually aired during his shift. His broadcast career took him to Edmonton, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, and finally in 1965 to Vancouver. Within a short period of time David was baptized, and began attending Sabbath services. In the spring of 1996 he was an invited guest at the Canadian National conference of the United Church of God in Victoria. David was credentialed in UCG later the same year. Now retired from broadcasting he currently pastors congregations in Vancouver, and Vancouver Island. David is a member of the UCG-Canada National Council. He also serves as Coordinator of the Media Team for UCG-Canada, working in cooperation with the National Council and the Director of Operations, and is one of the members of the broadcast team on Good News Radio produced from the UCG head office in Cincinnati. David's wife, Ghyslaine, was born and raised in Lausanne Switzerland. She is fluent in both French and English, with a working knowledge of other languages as well. David and Ghyslaine are happily married, with two sons, two daughters, a son-in-law, a daughter-in-law, and two grandsons. A third grandchild is due during this fall festival period, and has been a difficult pregnancy for their daughter. As a result Mrs. Palmer is unable to be with the brethren at the Feast this year.
