Here we grow again! Smart Church Solutions recently added two more superstars to the team.
Tori Christoffel, our Administrative Assistant, has been married to her best friend, Tommy, for about three years. They met serving in church together and love working to build the kingdom through their jobs. She brings three years of administration experience to the Smart Church Solutions team. Organizing and creating efficient systems are right up her alley, and she loves working behind the scenes to serve our team.
Ben Whitley, our Product Manager, is husband to his high school sweetheart, Sara, and father to Elyse, Oliver, and Isaiah. Ben is currently an elder, preacher, teacher, and technology team volunteer at his local church — talk about multiple hats. He’s been involved in church facilities since he was 15 when his home church bought and renovated a large retail space. Before joining Smart Church Solutions, Ben served the facility needs of large industrial manufacturers and managed multiple church management and mobile apps.
Join us in welcoming Tori and Ben! To help you get to know them better, we asked them a few questions:
Where Do You Live?
Tori: Mckinney, Texas
Ben: Tea, South Dakota
What Do You Like To Do For Fun?
Tori: I love going to coffee shops with my husband and traveling to new places together. In my free time, I enjoy watching movies and TV shows, reading, writing, painting, and many more artsy things.
Ben: I like to travel, play games with family, and go to the movies.
Why Did You Join The Team at Smart Church Solutions?
Tori: The Lord gave me the opportunity to move to a fully remote job, and I am so very grateful. Now I can be more flexible while traveling with my husband and still have an impact on the Kingdom through supporting the team as they serve the many churches we work with.
Ben: Smart Church Solutions has a strong, intentional company culture that aligns with my personal mission and values.
What Most Excites You About Working With Churches?
Tori: I love being behind the scenes, and supporting the leadership team at Smart Church Solutions is a way that I can do so while also serving the body of Christ. I love that we are fighting a spiritual battle (in maintaining their properties and ensuring things run smoothly) so that they can run harder on their missions.
Ben: I love the church. I'm grateful to be able to help churches be intentional about being the hands and feet of Jesus.
Ok, Now Brag About Yourself A Little
Tori: I'm artsy through and through! I grew up in a very musical family, so I can play many different instruments. I love singing and playing music with my family. As for skills in the workplace, I think my biggest asset is my love of people. I'm always excited to meet new people and see how God gifted them in different ways. I'm also a firstborn who thrives on organization. Making systems more clean and efficient is my happy place!
Ben: I've been a product manager for more than 10 different products before coming to Smart Church Solutions. I've served in a church technology role for over 15 years.
We are excited to have Tori and Ben on our team. Welcome aboard!
