Christmas is often the hardest part of the year for everyone, but it can be even more challenging for church tech teams.

Meet Dennis and Todd

Guest Speaker: Dennis Choy

Dennis currently oversees the production teams at Saddleback Church CA and previously served for 25 years as the Executive Pastor and Technical Production Pastor for North Coast Church in San Diego, CA. Creating, developing and leading the Technical Teams was one of the many areas he built during his time there. Coaching and helping churches has always been a passion of his and now he is focusing on that full time through several different organizations he created.

Guest Host: Todd Elliott

Todd is a writer, speaker, technical artist in the local church and founder of FILO. Formerly the Technical Arts Director at Willow Creek Community Church, he started FILO in 2015 to help other technical artists become more effective so that the local church can be more effective. In his free time, he enjoys being inspired by Winston Churchill speeches and visiting the gravesites of U.S. presidents. Residing near Chicago, he and his wife Bissy have three kids and a dog…none of whom are into production.
