1-Being called into the ministry.
One of the unique things about the role of a church tech person is that technical skill can be hired independent of a call to ministry. Yet, the actual role is about way more than technology. It’s about commitment towards kingdom of God. As it was mentioned in Rom 10:14-15, How beautiful are the fee of those who carry good news. The only way to “carry” good news was to bring it physically, walking from one place to another. Technological advances, however, have opened up numerous additional communication channels, all of which we can use to amplify the rate at which we spread the Word.
2-HELP congratulation connected with God.
This job is not about just being a button-pusher. It’s all about helping people experience Jesus by creating excellent, distraction-free environments. You set the stage, both literally and figuratively, for people to hear the most significant message of all time – the Gospel. You set the stage, people to connect what they see and what they hear to enjoy the worship and also connect with message being deliver from pulpit. You set the stage, for online viewers to feel they are in the presence of God.
3-Good organizational skills.
There are way too many moving pieces, too many flies, too many software. Unless there is a proper plan and keeping the things in order, its going to be a big challenge to get ready for the service and avoid disruptions. Lets Add in planning, rehearsals, and special events, and the “moving pieces” become exponential.
Being organized not only gets things done, but it makes the difference in the stress on the team. Its also very easy for any new volunteer to pickup the skill and move forward. The ability to plan prevents other people’s emergencies and keep every one in the team to develop the spirit of worship while on their task.
4-The ability to partner with the All other ministries.
We are living in the world where our lives are running lightning speed and its very true natures Satan device our perception towards being a part of Christ body. Our hearts are always tuned to specific tasks what we are assigned with and say no to other things. As it was mentioned in 1 Corinthians 12:21 (The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!”) we should always remember every one, every ministry is part of Christ body. Its very important to work with worship ministry
5-Habits of best church tech volunteers.
1. You Show Up Early
Many people wait until the last minute to show up for their jobs. Great volunteers show up early and are prepared for the day ahead.
2. They Are Committed To Learning
There is no shortage of educational material on video, lighting, and sound. There are books, podcasts, blogs, and YouTube videos available for little or no cost. Thriving tech volunteers are dedicated to becoming proficient in their area.
3. They Work Well With Others
It doesn’t matter how talented you are if other people can’t stand to work with you. Be humble. Be kind. The best volunteers remember that they are only a small part of the body of Christ and depend on the rest for success.
4. They Look For Ways To Improve Their Area
No tech system is perfect and may require adjustments over time to better serve the church. Great volunteers keep an eye out for ways to improve and research how it can be done effectively and affordably.
5. They Honor The Vision of The House
A church tech team that looks great but doesn’t follow the vision of their leaders isn’t great at all. The best tech teams commit to following the vision of the pastor and turning his goals into reality.
6. They Stay Positive
Not every service will be a good, but there is something good in every service. You will run into problems, equipment will fail, and mistakes will happen. That’s okay! Thriving tech volunteers learn from their failures and remind others to keep their chin up.
7. They Take Great Care of Equipment
Tech gear shouldn’t be taken for granted. No matter what equipment your church has, God has entrusted it to your care. The best volunteers take the time to treat these resources right and maintain them well.
8. They Are Strong Spiritually
There should be a noticeable difference between a tech volunteer in the church and someone working tech in the corporate world. The Spirit of God is in you and you are called to do a special work. Thriving volunteers take this calling to heart and come in on Sundays already in tune with God.
9. They Look For Ways To Get Others Involved
I’ve saved the best for last, because it has the potential to make the most impact. The best church tech volunteers don’t try to do everything on their own, but strive to get others involved on their team. There is great strength in numbers and God will bless your work when you’re helping people get involved in ministry.
