Welcome to my Blog!
My name is Parker Loy, I am the Online Pastor at FirstNLR in North Little Rock, Arkansas. Together my wife, Meredith, and I have been the Online Campus Pastors for the last 3 1/2 years. My wife is a professional Ballerina with Ballet Arkansas (She ROCKS!) And our Wolf/Husky, Elsa May, runs the world.
The title of Online Pastor is really a new position in churches – the thought of hiring someone to pastor the internet hasn’t exactly been seen as a major necessity in the church! HA! But having an Online Campus is growing in popularity around the world. Small and large churches have exponentially increased the reach of their church by adding an online ministry.
Over the last few years, I’ve found that there aren’t many people explaining or teaching about Online Church. There are websites who make it really easy to get started, and those who provide tips in passing but after talking to many Online Pastors around the nation – there really aren’t many talking about the details of creating, managing and pastoring an Online Campus.
Over the last 2 years, my dream has been to help churches create, implement and grow their Online Ministries. It has brought me so much joy to help so many churches and online pastors get started with an Online Campus. This is why I wanted to start this blog to help educate, guide and encourage pastors and churches to Get Online!
