Our Team

SanctuaryOne is a small, close knit team of passionate, professional Christian marketers. We began nearly a decade ago with a simple but passionate desire, we wanted to make great marketing materials for churches.

Over the years the vision has matured and grown as the marketplace has expanded and new platforms like social & mobile emerged, but the vision remains essentially the same – we still just want to make great marketing materials for churches.
