About the Company

The Why
Recognizing a growing need in the church audio-visual community a small group of technicians sat down to create an organization driven to solve a problem. From the inception DTS seeks to be brave, think outside of the box and find the exception. That initial group identified a deficit between available and qualified technicians and an incredible demand from church audio-visual ministries for those types of technicians.

The initial idea was to bridge the gap between the technician and the church. The primary focus would be to connect quality technicians to churches that needed dependable technical support. The group recognized a robust and personal training and development program would need to be instituted within the organization in order to assure that churches would be connected to dependable technicians. This training and development program paired with a church technician profile system would allow the organization to match the technician to the church's needs.

If an organization could provide fair pricing and dependable technical assistance, that organization could make the lives on both sides of the coin easier and more fruitful. Thus the idea of the Dependable Tech guarantee. An assurance to the church that the right tech will be delivered for the right price.

Our vision is to see communities built by dependable people; building each other, through dependable ideas.

Our mission is to provide dependable and accountable tech services.
