Member Spotlight: Pastor Eric Meyer

As we celebrate Thanksgiving this month, one blessing for which I am grateful is

the relationships with my fellow Rotarians. I am pleased to spotlight one of our

newest members, Pastor Eric Meyer. I encourage everyone to get to know Eric

and to reach out to current and potential members to share the gift of Rotary


Brenda O’Gorman,

Membership Chair

Ministry is my third career, but it is my true vocation.  My first career was in mass

market retail sales.  For 19 years I managed product development teams, sales

teams, and personally managed the Target and Wal-Mart accounts.  In 2008, I had

achieved all I could have asked for in the toy industry, and decided it was time to

shift the direction of my life.  I formed a partnership with my Tae Kwon Do

instructor and taught martial arts as I ran that small business for the next four

years.  It was during this time that I discovered I was in ministry.  While teaching

martial arts, we were helping people transform their lives.  I felt a strong calling to

help people transform their lives through developing their relationship with God

and began seminary studies in 2011.  In 2014, I began my true vocation, serving

two small churches in Northwest Arkansas.  In 2015, I became the associate pastor

at 1 st United Methodist church in Bentonville, Arkansas.  I was responsible for

managing the program staff for a church that held 5 services each Sunday and

averaged over 600 in weekly attendance.  During that time, I also became a Gallup

Certified Strengths Assessment coach.  I use this skill extensively in my ministry,

having coached well over 120 people in the last 3 years. 

In 2020, Brenda and I became empty nesters and were ready for a change.  We

moved to Sioux City Iowa, and for a year, and last year I served three churches in

northeast Nebraska.  In July, I was asked to lead Trinity United Methodist Church

in Salina.  I enjoy running, long walks with Brenda and the dogs, hunting, fishing,

and I crave learning.  I am currently working on my Doctor of Ministry degree.
