Rodney and his wife Lynn served the Lord under GFF as church planting missionaries in Tanzania, East Africa for thirteen years. He and his wife Lynn have been married since May 1998 and have three children at home and one married. The Myers have lived the experience of missionary preparation, deputation, and service on the mission field. They are experienced missionaries that have been used by God in spite of many challenges to plant a church in one tribe which, in turn, sent out workers to plant another church cross tribally. Additionally, Rodney invested many years in training nationals in local church leadership. They are honored to serve the Lord by serving the GFF team where Rodney serves as the General Director since January 2018.
