Dr. Rob Myers, Senior Pastor
When you meet Pastor Rob you will quickly become aware of three things that are important to him: his love for preaching the Word of God, his love for his family, and his love for his church family. Dr. Myers is a gifted and faithful teacher whose messages combine sound, Biblical preaching, and practical, candid application. His extensive historical knowledge provides context, insight, and understanding as he encourages his listeners to join him in becoming a student of God’s Word.
As a Pastor with 36 years of experience, Pastor Rob is committed to equipping the church body to become the mature disciple making organization that Christ intended. He has published a set of books on Discipleship called The Xristos Factor. The books are a ten-week intensive guided study and devotional on becoming mature disciples in Christ. He also has a daily radio Bible program on Life F.M., where thousands of people hear the clear Word of God all throughout the metro Miami area Monday through Friday. For the last 15 years under Pastor Rob’s loving guidance, Miami Baptist Church has become one of the most integrated and relevant churches in the Miami area. Miami Baptist Church is known as a place where the gospel is preached, the presence of God is experienced and the love of God is felt. Miami Baptist Church truly is a life-giving church with a relevant message that helps people connect with God and with one another.
Pastor Rob was born in Dallas Texas, 1956, and is the son of First Baptist Church Dallas, recreation pioneers, Bob & Jeane Myers and eventual IMB Missionaries to Panama. As a young man on the mission field with his parents, he became conversationally fluent in Spanish. This experience in missions birthed a driving desire to be involved in world missions and to lead this church to do the same! Several times a year he travels to teach pastors around the Caribbean and the Southern Americas as an adjunct professor at Indiana Wesleyan University. He has led our church to work with the PEACE plan with Saddleback Church.
Pastor Myers is a graduate of Palm Beach Atlantic University (Bachelor of Arts) Southwestern Theological Seminary (Master’s in Divinity) and John Wesley University (Doctorate of Ministry in Leadership).
In 1981 he married a wonderful partner in ministry, Dr. Estelle Myers. They have served arm in arm in their ministry of church and family. They have three fantastic adult sons: Robert, who works for the U.S. Senate Republican Conference; Pastor Mike Myers (wife Allie and granddaughter Rebecca) and Pastor/Evangelist Thomas Myers.
Dr. Estelle Myers, Church & School Administrator & Leader of Woman’s Ministries
There are few women that you will ever meet that have as dynamic a ministry as Dr. Estelle Myers. Not only is she a gifted Bible teacher and counselor, she excels with the biblical gift of administration. She has been instrumental in working at Pastor Rob’s side to create and develop many young people into positions of leadership within our organization. She is fulfilling the vision of the church to a Christian school, and is our headmaster of the school. Estelle leads the women’s ministry teams in mentoring, and in missions. She is frequently a women’s conference speaker. There are few women who can teach the word of God as she does. Estelle has helped to organize almost every facet of our church. She is a true disciple maker, and as she and Rob have been in our church for the last 15 years, she is now intent on equipping the next generation of church leaders for Miami Baptist Church. She is one of the best marital counselors in Miami and leads our counseling program at the church.
Dr. Estelle has her bachelor of arts degree from California Baptist University; her Masters in Religious Education with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Counseling from Southwestern Theological Seminary, and her Doctorate of Ministry in Leadership from John Wesley University.

Rev. Mike Myers, Associate Pastor of Young Adults
As a Young Adult Pastor of 6 years, Mike’s greatest desire is to see young people come to know Christ and then truly walk in the will of the Lord. Over and over again, the area youth come to know Christ personally through his strong Biblical preaching which is delivered in a way that the young people can relate to. He is an amazing verse by verse Bible teacher who finds extremely creative ways to relate the material. Mike has partnered our church with an on-campus high school ministry called First Priority. He has bible studies now on three secular campuses and speaks regularly at local Christian high schools. He is effectively taking the Gospel beyond the walls of the church to where the youth are!

As a Field Evangelist we as a church see him as part of our missions outreach. If your church or organization needs a speaker or evangelist for an event, he is yours to use on behalf of our church wherever the Lord leads. Thomas has a heart for evangelism and felt called to be an evangelist from a young age. Thomas received a Bachelor’s degree from Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia in Philosophy and Religion and a Master’s of Divinity from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina.
