Get to Know Jeff Hook

Podcast Guest Overview

For a majority of the last 16 years, Jeff has committed his life to helping churches be more effective by using technology to help people live more functional Christian lives.

In 2004, Jeff started Fellowship Technologies, which brought Fellowship One to market, to help churches scale Sunday mornings as the megachurches needed better technology and processes to handle the crowds they were attracting.

After selling F1 to Active Network hoping that a larger organization could help churches attract more seekers through Active.com, Jeff went on to apply his skills to helping ParishSOFT rework their development processes and to modernize its roadmap.

Once his non-compete expired, he felt led to take everything he had learned to once again help the church better utilize technology.

As technology became part of our everyday lives through the introduction of the smart phone, Jeff realized that to really fulfill the mission of the church, or make disciples, technology could be used to even a greater extent to help people live out the Gospel in a much bigger way beyond Sundays.

And so, introducing Communitas Technologies.
