Serving in medical/musical ministry and leadership development, through teaching future doctors and developing ethnodoxologists.
Brian and Megan Meyers work in Beira, Mozambique, the second largest city in the nation. Brian teaches medicine at a Catholic Medical School (one of three medical schools in Mozambique), training future doctors, and works at the Central Hospital in Beira. As an ethnomusicologist, Megan partners with a local worship ministry, ACAC (Christian Alliance of Creative Artists), teaching worship workshops, mentoring worship leaders, and developing indigenous hymnody. Both are also busy training up the next generation of missionaries by raising their four daughters.
Missions work is not unfamiliar to the Meyers. Both Brian and Megan are missionary kids. Brian was raised in China and Japan, while Megan grew up in Papua New Guinea. They met in Ivory Coast–Brian completing a medical rotation, and Megan recording worship songs for the Nyarafolo Bible Project.
Together, Brian and Megan spent the first years of their married life in ministry and service in urban Detroit, partnering with Central Detroit Christian Community Development Corporation and Citadel of Faith Covenant Church.
Through two vision trips to Mozambique, they sensed God’s call to serve there, to mobilize medical and musical missionaries, and to encourage the African-American church towards global missions.
What Brian and Megan love best about being missionaries is the joy of serving their Lord by doing what they’re most passionate about: training future leaders in their specific medical and musical giftings and passing the passion to serve onto their four daughters! They particularly enjoy seeing the youth they minister to become ministers to other Mozambicans.
Pray that God would help the Meyers to build relational bridges with young future doctors and worship leaders and that those mentoring relationships would result in disciples that would expand God’s Kingdom!
