WHAT PAST FILO ATTENDEES SAY

“My soul has been parched for several reasons and worship was water to my soul in a way that it couldn’t be back home. I didn’t have to think about anything but connecting with my God and it was glorious! ”

“You guys really gave me a break. I just wanted to lay down and rest because finally, I didn’t have to do anything… I was able to find myself again after serving in sound for nearly 28 years. I just felt a pinch of being human again!!!!!”

“FILO, for me personally, is a mandatory event. I can’t imagine a healthy work-life experience without it. It fuels the development of my team afterwards too, with the downloads of the main session videos and audio of the breakouts, in a way that my church leadership values deeply.”

“I realized I was losing my passion for doing sound in ministry. This event sparked the flame again… I knew I wasn’t the only person facing some of the issues and being among others that “Get it” was refreshing… So was sitting in a service and not worrying about anything!!!”

“My personal goal is to double the number of people for next year that I brought this year.”

“I found insights and perspectives that were totally new to me as well as challenges that I can’t wait to unpack with my team now that I am getting back to the typical work week and gearing up for the weekend.”

Frequently Asked Questions
Who is FILO Conference for?

Anyone involved in technology in his or her local church. Audio or lighting, staff or volunteer, beginner or expert, everyone is encouraged to attend. There will be something for everyone. While technical artists are the focus of FILO, worship pastors, music directors, lead pastors, creative directors or anyone who works with technical artists is more than welcome to attend.

Why does it cost so much?

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. Meals will be available for pre-purchase at a future date. Stay tuned!

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.

It takes many amazing people to pull off such a great event, many of whom are volunteers! Check out the core team of people who make FILO a success.
