Eternity Changers: Interview with Willow Creek’s Technical Arts Director Todd Elliott

Interview with Willow Creek Community Church’s Technical Arts Director Todd Elliott

When you’re the technical arts director at one for the country’s leading churches, what fears and challenges do you need to overcome? Why do you stop doing the popular Guru’s of Tech Conference? How do you keep from burning out, even when you’re always in the tech booth? These are just some of the questions I asked Todd Elliott, technical arts director at Willow Creek when I talked to him in this interview.

It’s long, but he says so much good stuff, that I couldn’t cut it. Stay until the end; you won’t regret it.
