WHO WE ARE

The soul of our company is creating tools that help the church and treating customers like family.

OUR MISSION

MediaShout’s goal is to provide a tool that enhances church services by being able to create presentations faster and in a more creative way. Most importantly, our mission is to take care of you like you’re family! For the last 18 years, these two principles have guided everything we do.

A message from our President / Owner Eric V. Eitel

OUR HISTORY

Our history goes way back… actually to the beginning.
MediaShout was the pioneer of church presentation software in 2000.

MediaShout’s roots go back to the 1990s. While working for Josh McDowell and Acquire The Fire, the company’s four founders saw the need for a tool that would help run live worship presentations. The technology was changing and the ability to incorporate media into worship was becoming easier, while churches and other ministries were looking to move away from hymnals and overhead transparencies.

Rather than buy an existing program from the entertainment industry, they decided to write their own worship software, which came to market in March of 2000. The concept was so new, the term Church Presentation Software hadn’t even been coined; these four literally invented the category.

MediaShout quickly found a home among youth pastors. This was the kind of technology and media conduit they needed to make worship more relevant, as well as a way to engage and enlist members of their youth groups. As a result, the program became so successful that we couldn’t produce it fast enough.

18 years later, we are selling our sixth major release and tens of thousands of churches are using MediaShout to add another dimension to their worship. Our offices are located in Nashville, Tennessee, a thriving city that’s home to many faith-based businesses.

OUR TEAM

Our team is made up of pastors, worship leaders, church volunteers,
and a/v professionals. We understand what you need and are here to help.

ERIC V. EITEL
President / Owner

Managing any company well requires a lot of spreadsheets, graphs, planning, and constant evaluation of performance indicators. Beyond my textbook duties, I love to serve my team so they can be at their best. I strive to create a healthy culture that is fertile soil for spiritual and professional growth. My joy comes from watching them succeed at serving our customers, glorifying God, and fulfilling our mission.

BRANDON HADLEY
Director of Sales & Marketing

As a former youth pastor and lead pastor, it is so encouraging to help others on the front lines of ministry every day.  I enjoy walking the journey with pastors and volunteers and watching their ministries grow.

AARON WEST
Director of Product Development

I love using the gifts God has given me to serve churches and ministries all over the world. Teaching at conferences and talking to users is one of my favorite things to do because I get to hear their stories about what God is doing in their communities.

JOHN PHILLIPS
Senior Customer Service Technician

Every day, I get to work alongside some of the most loving, caring, sharing, and generous Christians I’ve ever known. On top of that, the team as a whole gets to help loving and caring Christians from all over the world who are selflessly serving their congregations. It’s a daily cycle that invigorates me.

DAVE FRY
Senior Customer Service Technician

I love that we have a team that cares about the Church and each other and is passionate about serving our customers the best that we can.

RYAN ZEECK
Customer Service Technician

Being on the front lines, I talk to countless people on the phone every day. It is amazing to hear about all of the different ways MediaShout is being used to build God’s Kingdom! It’s extremely fulfilling to end each week knowing that I helped make a difference for so many people, churches, and communities.

DAVID MAY
Customer Service Technician

Our team helps equip churches making an impact in their communities all over the world. I love being a small part of that mission.

ADAM DUBOSE
Customer Service Technician

Speaking to several churches a day in a support roll, I see the wide variety of ways MediaShout is being used. As a church volunteer I see the impression left by a professional presentation on regular church members, but also on those first-time visitors. It gives me pleasure to know I may have had a small part in creating an atmosphere our attendees are anxious to come back to over and over again.
