Rick Meyer

Wellness Center Director



My Role At Bethel

I manage the operations of the Wellness Center and work to develop opportunities for Bethel community members to engage in an active and healthy lifestyle. My team specifically aims to develop campus-wide physical wellness but works closely with all aspects of wellbeing to develop whole and holy individuals.

Why You'd Contact Me

You can contact me to discuss questions related to physical wellness, exercise, strength and conditioning, nutrition, or wellbeing.  

Reasons I Love My Job

I love the energy created within the wellness center. While the equipment and facility itself create an incredible setting, it is the people that sustain the amazing atmosphere. I love that our campus craves the opportunity for personal growth. My job allows me the opportunity to witness the amazing heart, effort, and discipline that our community possesses as it seeks to improve personal wellness. Having the opportunity to enter into the fight and assist our students, staff, faculty, and administration is a gratifying and motivating experience. 


I grew up in West Concord, Minnesota, and currently live in Mahtomedi, Minnesota.


Bachelor of Arts in Athletic Training / Physical Education, Bethel University

In My Free Time

You will find me enjoying life with my family and friends, engaging in any competitive event I can find, searching for my golf ball in the woods, singing, cooking, and taking on various building projects around my house.
