Monk Development

MonkDev leads the way in helping churches and organizations broaden their reach, deepen their engagement and develop their community using technology.

We do this through our deep involvement in this space as well as our years of experience translating organization's missions to the digital space.  Our solutions are used by thousands of churches, organizations and corporations around the world.


Monk Development began in 2006 in the home of our Founder, Drew Goodmanson and since has grown to a team of over 25 people.  Drew Goodmanson had begun a church and seen the need for a powerful yet easy-to-use solution for organizations to manage their presence online.  Immediately thereafter, Etienne de Bruin (CTO) joined to lead the development of our software suite that includes our web-based Content Management System Ekklesia360 (and others), people management tools, private community software, mobile and social media integration; all built from the ground up around best-of-class technologies.  In 2008, James Martin (President/COO) joined, who has been instrumental in building the company.  

MonkDev has gathered people who are passionate about our vision who live across the US in areas such as Seattle, San Francisco, Dallas, Austin, Colorado, North Carolina and others.
