Meyfart studied at the Universities of Jena (MA 1611, DD 1624) and Wittenberg, and was thereafter for some time adjunct of the philosophical faculty at Jena. In 1616, he was appointed professor in the Gymnasium at Coburg, and in 1623 director. When his colleagues at the Gymnasium complained to the government about his 1633 dissertation De disciplina ecclesiastica, Meyfart accepted a professorship at the revived University of Erfurt.
He began his work in Erfurt in July 1633, became rector of the University in 1634, and in 1636 also became pastor of the Prediger Kirche.
