Hey I’m Troy Palermo. I’m a pastor at LifePoint Church in Columbus, Ohio. I’m passionate about small groups, church planting and what God is doing through the local church here in the U.S. and around the world. Before moving to Columbus to help launch LifePoint in 2004, I worked for 9 years at Colonial Hills Church in Southaven, Mississippi.
Over the past 18 years, I’ve had the amazing privilege of learning from and partnering with a lot of great people and this website is a place for me to organize and share some of the things that I have learned along the way. My hope is that some of this stuff will be helpful to other pastors and church planters as we make MUCH of God and navigate the journey together.
The website title comes from my hope for all of our small groups and for this website: that they become a place for people to DISCOVER truth, CONNECT with God and one another and BELONG in a life-giving biblical community. If you find this site helpful and are able to use some of this info in your ministry, I’d love to hear more about what God is doing in your church. You can contact me at email@example.com
I’m married to Alison, a special education teacher and an amazing woman who challenges and encourages me along the way. When I’m not working I love LSU football, University of Memphis basketball, the Gulf Coast and chasing fish with my fly-rod (so many fish, so little time).
