Ralph Wetherell and his family have been worshiping and growing with Palmetto Presbyterian Church for over six years. He comes to us from within our congregation. Ralph has completed his Lay Pastor education requirements and has come on staff to focus on developing our men’s ministry, and small group activities. During his Lay Pastor process, Ralph felt a deeper call to gain a better insight and understanding of his faith, currently both he and his wife, Terri, are attending seminary. “I am a tent-maker, in that I have realized a thirst and passion to serve God and the church in a bigger way, but I also go to work every day to earn a living for my family; I have come to realize and enjoy that there are a large amount of folks out there who do just that. Palmetto is blessed with caring folks who live this life daily; I really love this about our church. We are a community of Christ like people who desire to serve, not because of duty, but because of a burning passion!”
Ralph and his wife Terri together have four children, Taylor, Alex, Richard, and Harrison. Harrison is a freshman at Clemson; Ralph and Terri believe that God placed Harrison in their lives to keep them young at heart and body.
