Publisher's Summary

Technical artists serving in the local church understand what it means to love Jesus but, somehow, hate Christmas. By the time Christmas (or any church event) is over, technical artists have poured hundreds of hours of their lives into thankless jobs - rolling cable, taping the stage, checking mics, and other invisible jobs.

They’re the first to arrive and the last to leave. They work behind the scenes and dress in black. They’re the unseen heroes who have to figure out how to do the impossible. Week after week. Unnoticed. Invisible is what they do...until something goes wrong.

In I Love Jesus but I Hate Christmas, Todd Elliot addresses the challenges every technical artist in the church - and those who lead them - has ever had. And he offers refreshing insight into learning to thrive as a technical artist, successfully collaborating with fellow artists and building skilled teams of technical artists to be as effective as possible. Because, when you’re more effective, the church is more effective.

FILO (first in, last out) is for technical artists in the local church. It is designed to provide skill development, community, and inspiration to equip technical artists to become more effective in the church. Because when we’re more effective, the church is more effective.

Life Changing

I thought I was the only one who felt this way and my church was dysfunctional. It turns out….I’m actually normal….for a Technical Artist that is. This book made me realize how I can change my thinking to get results, instead of just feeling like everyone is taking advantage of me. If you are a Technical Artist or a leader of them, this book is a MUST READ! It will bless you on a whole new level.
