I am so glad you dropped by to checkout aarongloy.com. As a fellow sinning saint and leader, my goal is to do everything I can to help you move forward in your journey of faith and leadership one step at a time. We may not always agree, but we will learn and move forward together. Welcome!
I am a follower of Jesus, a husband, a dad, and a pastor, in that order. I am the founding and lead pastor of Mosaic Lincoln, a founding board member of Pillar Seminary, a founding board member of the Creo Collective church planting network, and a district multiplier with the EFCA.
The Bio I Wish I Had:
When it comes to life, Aaron Loy is a man among boys.
He never argues with wife, never loses patience with his kids, always says and does the right thing, and never ever pictures himself beating the steaming arrogance out of religious people who hurt those he cares about.
He knows that failure exists in theory, though he has never experienced it for himself. He is aware that sometimes leaders are afraid, but Aaron knows only unshakable courage. He certainly never questions himself or his ability to live up to the mission God has called him to. Most days he lives and leads with such influence, that he needs only to speak and new churches are planted and lives forever changed.
My Real Bio:
Yea, not even close. The truth is I am a very ordinary guy who struggles often and has failed regularly throughout my relatively short life.
I’ve done a lot of dumb things in that span of time – like repeatedly jumping from my bike onto moving trains as a child, chasing an intruder through our house butt naked, and “many” other things of a more serious nature my wife warns she could easily recall.
I have to work very hard to do what I do. Anything that appears natural or easy is only an illusion. When I manage to succeed, it almost always comes through a combination of invested blood, sweat and tears. And despite my best efforts, there are still many days that I only manage to achieve mediocrity.
Only by God’s grace do I find myself somehow blessed with an incredible wife, three great kids, and leading a church full of wonderfully authentic imperfect people in a city I love.
When it comes down to it, I am really just an ordinary guy serving an extraordinary Savior and dreaming of an extraordinary Church. It turns out that God is rather fond of using ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary things so I am doing my best to help others worship hard, love well and risk much as we stumble forward together.
This is the place where I process and share what I am learning in hopes of helping others who are on a similarly crazy journey of faith and adventure. Welcome!
