Oscar Palin is originally from Northwest Indiana, near Chicago and moved to Tennessee to go to college in 2014. He graduated from Lee University in May of 2018 with a degree in Biblical and Theological Studies. He's had the opportunity to intern at First Pres in the summers of 2016 and 2017. He says those were two of the best summers of his life and he cannot wait to see how the Lord works through the church as he becomes a full-time staff member. In his spare time, he likes to play soccer, play videogames, and read. He also enjoys exploring the outdoors, camping, hiking, and traveling to new places. He looks forward to seeing some familiar faces and meeting some new ones as well.
