Students find Dr. Myers’ classes difficult, but life altering. He is passionate about interacting with students and challenges them to grow in the Lord, from where they are currently to where they would like to be. Indeed, Dr. Myers believes that Crown’s size offers a tremendous opportunity for students to interact with their professors—not only in the classroom, but also through mentoring and other forms of spiritual direction. By graduation, students are well prepared to lead and serve in the church, or pursue seminary or other postgraduate programs. Dr. Myers emphasizes, “Crown is a wonderful place to grow spiritually—both in the knowledge of God’s Word and in the personal application of Scripture. Crown offers a deeply supportive community of like-minded believers who desire to serve God in whatever field or pursuit.”
Before joining the faculty team, Dr. Myers served as a Pastor, an Interim Pastor and a missionary in Eastern Europe. Dr. Myers is a recipient of the Crown College Award for Distinguished Scholarship (2005 and 2009) and of the Crown College Award for Distinguished Work with Students (2001).
