Eric Metoyer serves the people of God in the Diocese of California as Associate for Congregational Ministries; in this role he is responsible for support of the missions and parishes of the Diocese. He is also the liaison to the multi cultural communities of the Diocese as well as the lead of the anti-racism working group of DioCal.

Metoyer was raised in northern New England, attending Lyndon Institute in Vermont and Williams College in Massachusetts. After college Metoyer lived in the Boston area where he worked as an accountant in construction firms; he continued as an accountant in the engineering and construction field when he moved to San Francisco.
