Thursdays are tough days. We start at 9am with a Production Meeting and go until at least 9pm (we have rehearsal on Thursday nights). It’s just a long and very full day. Yesterday was tough for a number of reasons. Tough/draining meetings. Tough, but needed conversations. Stage setup for rehearsal. And many other things that I’ve blanked out of my memory.
On a positive note, we had 2 new audio guys training at rehearsal last night. One guy was on his 3rd week of training and will be running monitors on his own this Sunday morning. The other guy came out for the first time and still needs a few more training sessions before he can go “solo”. We also have a Video Director shadowing our best Video Director this coming Sunday, so I’m pretty excited about that. We’ve also assimilated a few others on camera, lights and graphics in September, so all in all, it’s been a great month. Lots of new faces, which is great as we gear up for the move to our new worship center (which now looks like it will be January).
I’m curious, though – every church is different, yet we have much in common. What are your struggles? What frustrates you in your role? What would you like to see change in your tech ministry?
