About Wilf & Arlene
“When you reach the end of life and look back, what do you want to see?” This question has been the driving force behind the team ministry of Wilf & Arlene Meeds.
As an ordained minister, Wilf has served for over thirty years as a Pastor of Worship in a wide range of denominations. He has taught high school, Bible College, and University. Both Wilf & Arlene have taught children through adults in church and secular settings. It has been their goal to see the body of Christ built up and strengthened for service. And God has been exceedingly faithful in touching and transforming the lives of many through them.
Proverbs 22:12 says, “The eyes of the Lord keep watch over knowledge… .” The purpose of knowledge in this life is to make us more effective servants of the Lord. Wilf’s education includes a PhD in Musicology, a Masters of Music, a Bachelor of Education, and recently a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine. Arlene’s training and experience is in Early Childhood Education. The intent is to apply this knowledge to bring healing and wholeness to people in America and abroad.
Their passion is to see people experience healing in all areas of life: spiritual, emotional, and physical. Wilf and Arlene have been equipping and encouraging Pastors & Leaders with GTN since 2006. They have ministered extensively in Haiti, Africa, Asia, and South America.
In 2010, after seeing much pain and suffering overseas, Wilf answered God’s call to attend medical school. Arlene continued to travel and train in the areas of relationships, children’s ministry and positive discipline. After graduating in 2014, they resumed team ministry, adding medical care and instruction.
Wilf and Arlene have five children: Nathan & his wife Sarah who live in Portland, OR, Aaron, and twins Crystal & Jasmine who live with them in Mesa, AZ.
