The Making Sunday Happen Podcast | Episode 294

First In, Last Out with Todd Elliott (Part Two)

Show Notes

Show Notes:

If you missed last week’s episode of the show, we started a two part series with the Founder of FILO – Todd Elliott. You have full permission to stop this episode and go back and listen to PART ONE of this conversation with Todd to catch up.

We started a great discussion all about Church Tech Arts. Todd and Carl have served at large churches in the United States, and both have come from small churches as well as having a background of working with what you have to make things work for Sunday.

Todd has a similar passion to reach people for Jesus and to use tech arts as just that – an art form to share the Gospel.
