Mike Palmer


Mike, otherwise known as "Coach Palmer", has been a teacher and coach for 25 years and was the visionary behind the Mighty Oak Lodge. One day sitting under the oak tree, he felt the Lord leading him to build this breathtaking venue. After a year of building and hard work, the Mighty Oak Lodge provides a place for two to become one.
