Troy Parker / Founding Pastor

Troy Parker is the founding pastor of Church at Red River in Shreveport, Louisiana. After a stint in the US Navy and sensing a call to ministry, he enrolled in and graduated from International Bible College in San Antonio, where he met and married Anna Joy in 1978. The next twenty three years were filled with teaching, pursuing more education, and serving two churches in south Louisiana. A deep love of the Word, and a passion for helping the un-churched find their place in the family of God, led Troy and Anna Joy to plant Church at Red River in 2002. Troy’s years in the classroom makes him a teacher more than a preacher. He believes church should be a place of celebration, where folks can grow in their relationship with the Lord, and find a passion to minister to those in our city and in our world.

Troy and Anna Joy have spent their lives serving together in ministry, and count it a privilege to have been invited into the highest and lowest moments of people’s lives. Troy and Anna Joy are now enjoying retirement and are still a part of the Church at Red River family.
