John Myer

John Myer is a native of Louisiana who moved to Ohio back in the mid-eighties (his accent has yet to completely disappear). He has crisscrossed the globe on ministry adventures from Africa to the Far East and has been involved in everything from church leadership, church planting, and conference preaching, to campus work and long-term ministry training events. Now John brings his experience to bear in planting and leading Grandview Christian Assembly.

John has been married for over 30 years to Aleisha, who also hails from his tiny Louisiana hometown and perfectly understands his occasional use of “ya’ll” and his infrequent craving for gumbo. John and Aleisha have an adult daughter.

In addition to his ministry training, John has a Bachelor’s Degree in Management and a Master’s Degree in Theological Studies from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. His personal ministry websites are and
