Tim Meier, SJ
In 2005, after working as an undergraduate research coordinator and director of the honors program in biology at Stanford University, Fr. Meier attended a 30-day silent retreat that changed his life. After he was sure he heard God correctly, Fr. Meier enlisted in the United States Army at the age of 51 and joined the Army Chaplain Corps. Since 2006, Fr. Meier has been a Chaplain in the US Army and California National Guard. He has been deployed three times including a combat deployment to Iraq where his mission was to comfort the dying and help the living cope with the mayhem and horror.
Fr. Meier holds a BA in Music and Biology from Kalamazoo College, an MA in Philosophy from Loyola University Chicago, an MDiv and a ThM from Weston Jesuit School of Theology, as well as a PhD in Molecular Neurobiology from Stanford University.
