About FILO

When we’re more effective, the church is more effective.

FILO (First In Last Out) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization built around supporting technical artists who serve the local church, designed to provide skill development, community and inspiration to equip technical artists to become effective contributors to their local church.

FILO started out of Todd’s personal need to learn, be connected to others and to be inspired that what we all do matters. Since 2014, the only goal has been helping technical artists everywhere become more effective so that their churches are more effective.

Join the community of local church technical artists at FILO. You will never be the same!


It takes many amazing people to make FILO a success.
