Smart Church Solutions is growing some more! We recently added two more team members, passionate about stewardship and our mission. Both bring different skills to Smart Church Solutions, and we are blessed to have them aboard. Let’s be sure to give them a warm welcome!

Lizzie Zabojnik has joined our team as a Customer Success Specialist, ensuring all our clients have their needs met. She is extremely passionate about faith and her family. Outside of work, her favorite places to venture to are the beach, mountains, and rodeos. “My job is amazing because I get to equip people with good training and good products and work with great hardworking, strategic, and fun-loving people!” she says. 

Ryan Hefley also joined Smart Church Solutions as a Software Developer. Ryan’s background began in 2008 as an intern at the York County, SC, government office. Since then, he has held a variety of software development and engineering roles in consulting, manufacturing, and financial services. He is an active member and deacon at his home church and stays busy raising his two kids, Jacob and Morgan, alongside his wife, Vanessa.

We asked Lizzie and Ryan a few questions to learn more about them. Below are their responses.

​​Where Do You Live?

Lizzie: Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan Area, Texas

Ryan: York, SC

What Do You Like To Do For Fun?

Lizzie: Running, traveling, and watching movies with my husband.

Ryan: Traveling, playing games with my family, reading good books with the kids, and doing home improvement projects.

Why Did you Join The Team at Smart Church Solutions?

Lizzie: My husband and I were praying for a remote job where I could be a document writer, customer trainer, and work with churches. Smart Church Solutions answered that prayer!

Ryan: From working with most of the team in the past, I knew this was an awesome group of people and an organization where my faith is valued and fostered!

What Excites You Most About Working With Churches?

Lizzie: Seeing them care for people and their building — being good stewards of both.

Ryan: There is no other sector that makes a bigger impact on what really matters in life!

Ok, Now Brag About Yourself A Little

Lizzie: I have done energy management consulting with 100 different churches and schools. I have a bachelor’s and a minor in studio art, emphasis in painting. My coworkers often tell me that I’m great at working hard & getting results quickly. I have hiked Long Peaks and ran 1 Ultra-marathon race, 31.1 miles long. I lived in California and South Carolina and places all in between. I’m married to the best man in the world!

Ryan: I have more than a decade of experience in software development, where I have had opportunities to be involved with several different industries, from manufacturing to finance. However, I am most proud of my experience raising two wonderful kids with my lovely wife of 16 years. Parenthood is a job that never gets boring!

We are excited to have Lizzie and Ryan on our team. Welcome aboard!
