AHRF Advisor, Founder of the FIRM Foundation, Lecturer, Researcher
Rod Meldrum served as senior scientific researcher for 7 years on a natural sciences book, was President and CEO of High Country Gourmet, Inc. in Orem, Utah, and more recently was Director of Business Development for Interact Medical, a leading LMS (Learning Management System) developer for surgeons and patients in the medical device industry. He and his wife, Tonya, are the parents of four teenage children.
He began his study of issues surrounding the controversy over DNA and the Book of Mormon in 2003 which lead to questioning the origins of proposed geographical settings of the Book of Mormon. In addition he completed intensive study of the Book of Mormon itself and the historical background and documents associated with it. In 2007 he began sharing his research in numerous free presentations done at his own expense within the Intermountain Region of the United States.
Interest in the research reached a point that it was no longer possible to accommodate all those who wanted to learn more and combined with the tremendous amount of information to share, it was suggested that the presentation be recorded, resulting in creation of a DVD titled “DNA Evidence for Book of Mormon Geography. Brother Meldrum has since given hundreds of presentations across the United States and has spoken to many thousands of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on his findings in support of the truthfulness of Book of Mormon and the gospel of Jesus Christ.
