LEADERSHIP & STAFF
ADDIS CAMPUS PASTOR
Doug Myers is the campus pastor of the Eastridge Addis (Ethiopia) campus. Doug and his family served eight years in Swaziland, Africa developing children’s ministry. They trained children’s workers throughout the nation, started camping programs and a Christian Sports Coalition that became an effective tool for evangelism and discipleship. In March 2012, the Myers sensed God shifting their focus and in July 2013 they relocated to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to work with the Ethiopia AG to develop strategies for church planting. Upon arriving in Ethiopia, the Myers recognized a tremendous need for a dynamic English church in the capital city. In early 2016, Doug pursued a partnership with Eastridge Church to help in planting such a church. And on Easter 2016 Eastridge Church Addis was launched with Doug as the lead pastor.
