Dana Byers is a pioneer in the online church movement. She began as a Life.Church Online volunteer in 2006. In 2007, Dana and her young family sold nearly everything they owned to fund living overseas to launch BlueDoor Ministries, Inc. The first online church planters in history, the Byers family’s purpose was to help pastors launch online churches outside the U.S. in a variety of languages and to expand the reach of Life.Church Online. After moving back to the states, Dana wrote “The Art of Online Ministry” in 2011 and became the Associate Online Campus Pastor at Life.Church in 2012. Today she is the Executive Pastor of Mercy Road Church in Carmel, Indiana.
