At Tenth, we believe God technology can be used strategically for the proclamation of the gospel around the world, and the building of his kingdom at home. Therefore, we invest in technologies across several spheres, including video production, web development, church management, and connectivity. Among peer churches, we’re often a leader in adopting technologies that improve quality, efficiency, and resiliency.
if you have technical expertise or want to learn, we have many opportunities, including but not limited to the production of our four Sunday services. While we welcome experience, we’re happy to train anyone. Get in touch with James, our tech director, to get started.
