Rev. Dr. Bradley Palmer came to New Hope Presbyterian Church – Knoxville in June 2010. A life-long Presbyterian who has been an ordained Pastor since 1983, his interests include preaching, pastoral care and counseling, missions and christian education. His major claim to fame is he never loses at Trivial Pursuit. Married to Sherry for over 23 years and proud parent to Charley. His life is full and a lot of fun. His motto is: “It won’t be the same without you.” So come on!
Sarah Davis has been our Music and Choir Director at New Hope since January, 1999. Until June 2011, she was also Music Teacher at Powell Elementary School in Knox County, where she taught for 37 of her 38 year career as a public school music educator. At New Hope she leads the small but mighty Adult Choir and the Adult Handbell Choir. Sarah considers herself a “Baptmethoterian”. She spent most of her life happily serving, singing and ringing at Baptist churches. For over 12 years now she has been similarly and happily involved in ministry at New Hope, and for one week each summer she happily rings and sings at Lake Junaluska, smelling the roses and soaking in Methodist worship and culture. New Hope is a special place to serve, worship and fellowship. She feels blessed to be a part of its ministry.
