Add to My Calendar 2019-05-21 08:00:00 2019-05-22 18:00:00 CST FILO Conference 2019 FILO is designed for the community of technical artists who serve the local church. Whether volunteer or staff, FILO aims to provide skill development, community and inspiration to equip technical artists to become effective contributors to their local church. Chicago, IL FILO


“I love the heart that drives FILO! It’s not just about helping the techs get better at their job, but how they fit into the church community, and more importantly how they, as they serve, fit into God’s family.”

“Thank you for giving me an opportunity to worship and truly engage and be refreshed, more than I can ever express.”

“I feel filled up, inspired, and charged to make moves in my ministry. I really needed everything that FILO offered this year. Coming from a dude who was burnt out, it’s for real.”

“I got my face blown off with exciting ideas for the future!”

“FILO is like a huge shot in the arm for church techs! It’s like getting a second wind. We came away encouraged, inspired to try new tricks on old problems, and definitely learned a few new things.”

“It’s a special time to get away with our team and not have to worry about any of the tech details!”

Frequently Asked Questions
Who is FILO Conference for?

While technical artists are the focus of FILO, worship pastors, music directors or anyone who works with technical artists is more than welcome to attend.

Your registration helps us produce an event worth coming to! We bring in top-notch speakers and teachers, who are veterans at getting their hands dirty in the nitty gritty of production life. Our goal is to create an experience that will refresh and inspire those who come!

Are meals included?

Meals are not included with the cost of registration.

Who is behind FILO Conference?

After the Gurus of Tech conferences came to an end, there was no other event that was laser focused on the technical artist in the local church. Todd Elliott, the former Technical Arts Director at Willow Creek Community Church, rounded up a team of people to help fill the void and bring you the First In Last Out Conference.
