A little back story.

Oh, the journey of a church planter—the whole process of prayer and raising support and living in the community and living by faith (literally!). It’s exhausting. But it’s all worth it in the end. We can relate.

As we went through the branding and launch process at our own churches, we came to a realization. What if we could start something that had the potential to serve hundreds, perhaps thousands of churches? As a result, we concepted and founded Yellowbox, a creative agency that provides creative direction and design for churches and ministries.

We believe that with the right creative coaching and tools, churches can be more effective in sharing the Gospel. Beyond just serving churches creatively, we are passionate about sharing ideas, processes, planning and best practices with others. At the end of the day, we are all in this thing together.

The Leadership Team

We’re a team of strategists, designers, developers, writers, directors and producers united by our love of Christ.

Are you creative? We think so. Is Jez creative? We know so. A designer, musician and all-around talent, he leads a lofty vision for our team as we work to empower churches as they change the world. Formerly a world-traveling musician, he now invests in the local church by leading worship on Sunday mornings. Jez’s design thinking ensures that our work stays innovative, personal to the community and best-in-class. Truly, truly we say to you: a leader among creatives.

Jez Babarczy

Creative Director

Kevin’s been doing this ministry thing for over 25 years. And he’s passionate—not only about the church, but about strong and purposeful design. After all, God has graced us with an intrinsic ability to create. To design beauty from nothing. To write, to draw, to build, to sing and to dance for something and someone bigger than ourselves.

Leading operations, Kevin is crucial to the daily work of Yellowbox. He keeps our creative team smooth-running and productive, inspiring us on the daily.

Kevin Daughtry

Operations Director

This guy’s got everything: a keen eye, unheard-of editing prowess, and ruthless talent at the ping pong table. A sought-after photographer and videographer, Gabriel leads our department of visionaries as they tell church stories that build community and inspire action.

At Yellowbox, we’re firmly convinced that Gabriel is the best out there. If you disagree, don’t worry. We forgive quickly around here.

If we’re talking about branding, copywriting, storytelling, strategizing, ideating and next-level thinking, then Alex is your guy. Words? He knows SO many words. Like, a lot of words. And he’s not afraid to use them.

Alex changes the game for impact-driven organizations, working in the past with The White House, The CW, Houston’s Holocaust Museum, and countless nonprofits around the world. And now, he equips churches creatively as they work for the glory of Christ. Not a bad day job, right?

Senior Strategist

Who’s the most memorable person you’ve ever met? Around these parts, it’s our guy Tres. An artist, designer and strategist (with a passion for the local church), he works closely with our creative team to make sure every project we tackle is simultaneously inspiring and unforgettable.

Tres reminds us to keep dreaming. And honestly, that’s more important every day for us, for you, and for the rest of the world. Here’s a tip from Tres: write your dreams down and say them out loud every morning.

Art Director

There’s a lot going on at Yellowbox. We’ve got design and video and websites and photoshoots and social media and more. The list just goes on and on. To make things easier on our team (and to keep us sane), we have Renata leading the charge on project management.

She’s the most organized person in the world. She uses charts and programs and stuff, and actually plans out the future—it’s crazy. She gets things done, and we’re forever grateful for her talent.
