Greencastle Church of God

Pastor Floyd & Dottie

During the late 1930′s, the Rev. Floyd Myers was born on a farm between Upton and Mercersburg, Pennsylvania, along Route 16, now known as Buchanan Trail. He grew up on the dairy farm.

After graduating from high school, he attended Penn State Dairy Extension to train for the Dairy Herd Improvement Association (DHIA) records keeping. For the next 32 years, he worked in dairy records collecting milk samples and keeping the records on each individual cow on the farms for A.I. services and the United State Department of Agriculture (USDA).

He married the former Dorothy Mae Sweeney of Mercersburg. He and Dottie have two daughters, two grandsons, and one granddaughter; also two step-grandchildren and two step-great grandchildren.

After accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior in 1957, Floyd sensed the call to the ministry. Not really knowing what type of ministry, he began teaching Sunday School in his early twenties. By the mid-twenties, he had answered the call of pastors and churches to come and preach. During the next 20 years, he worked in the dairy records business and preached in many churches throughout the area community.

All this time, God was dealing with him about full-time ministry. Finally, the call became so strong he could not resist it. He made application for his ministerial credentials, and began his studies for the ministry and received a master diploma from the Church of God Bible Institute and took other college courses.

During those years of preparation, he served his local church in the capacities of Sunday School Teacher, Superintendent, Youth Leader, Clerk/Treasurer of the church, and eight years on the first State Layman’s Board in Pennsylvania, along with eight years as the associate pastor of the local church.

On March 21, 1978, Floyd received his Exhorters license, the first level of ministry in the Church of God. In 1982, he received the rank of licensed minister, and became ordained in 1984; then in 2000, Ordained Bishop, the highest rank of ministry.

Finally, you’ve heard it said that “behind every good man is a good woman.” Dottie has worked beside Pastor Floyd, with him, and for him. She has also worked in Sunday School and Youth Work. She assists with couples in counseling when called upon and travels with him to state and international meetings, visiting the sick and needy–the ministry has come to where it is today because she has stood by her husband. She also led the decorating committee for the new sanctuary.

Pastor Floyd and Dottie just say, “To God be the glory for all that has been accomplished in the many years of their ministry.”
