Dr. Jeff Myers

Dr. Myers’ mission is to equip culture-shaping leaders to understand the times, unleash their God-given gifts, and communicate the truth with confidence. To accomplish this mission, Dr. Myers has a vision of training one million leadership coaches by the year 2015. These coaches would be equipped to mentor, coach and teach emerging leaders in worldviews, leadership and communication, and help place them in positions of strategic kingdom-building influence.

As a vocation, Dr. Myers is Associate Professor of Communication Arts at Bryan College. He’s also President of the Myers Institute for Communication and Leadership, the organization through which the leadership-training mission is being launched. Dr. Myers speaks to more than 50,000 people each year in corporations, schools, homeschool conferences, parent groups and youth-serving organizations. Over the last decade Dr. Myers has worked with Colorado-based Summit Ministries to develop cutting-edge leadership experiences in Colorado, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Alberta, Canada. Dr. Myers is the author of six books and three video coaching systems including Understanding the Times, the curriculum that introduced worldview training to America’s Christian schools, and Secrets of Great Communicators.

Dr. Myers earned a Doctor of Philosophy degree from the University of Denver. He and his wife Danielle homeschool their four children—Graham, Emma, Cate, and Stuart—and live in Tennessee.
