Rob Palmer: Cheddar

Rob Palmer

Rob was born in Worcester and grew up working with his Dad laying roads and doing groundwork until he decided to train to become a Geologist and now works as a Manager in the construction and quarrying industry.

He lives in Somerset with his young family and this is where the biggest change in his life, that of becoming a Christian took place in 2015. This followed much searching down esoteric and spiritual "blind avenues" until he was finally able to make the connection between his head and heart and more importantly with Jesus.

He is passionate about sharing the journey he went on…from feeling excluded from faith for many years due to his own views about religion, and his misconceptions about compatibility between faith and science. He has also engaged with helping support men of all ages, previously by being a Mentor for Barnardo's and now as a Mental Health First Aider at work and through men’s ministry as part of the CVM Team.

His faith has grown into a simple trust in Jesus, a relationship which has provided a "solid sense of joy and peace throughout what have been very difficult and very happy times". His first experience of CVM was at The Gathering in 2019; Rob was inspired to realise that other guys like him were on the same journey, also that opportunities for great fellowship, fun and support are available to all.

When not playing with the kids or at work Rob likes camping in his trailer tent, meeting up with guys from his newly formed men’s group, trying to play the violin and fishing... thankfully not all at the same time!
