Meet Troy Palermo

Executive Pastor

Troy has been a part of the pastoral team at LifePoint since the church’s launch in 2004. Before moving to Columbus to help start LifePoint, Troy worked at a church in Southaven, MS (just south of Memphis TN). He graduated from McNeese State University in 1993 and Mid-America Baptist Seminary in 1997. He has been married to Alison, a special education teacher for Worthington Schools, since 1996. Troy serves as Executive and Teaching Pastor here at LifePoint and is responsible for providing direction and leadership for all aspects of our LifeGroups and for sharing in the responsibility of preparing and teaching weekly messages. When he is not at work Troy enjoys a really, really good cup of coffee, running, and chasing fish with his fly rod.
