from my notebook

My head is full of thoughts, and I have to write them down.

Tech Leader Wannabes

Church technical ministry is a unique ministry to say the least. No where else in church work, other than maybe on stage, will a volunteer’s performance be evaluated and commented on on a regular basis. While this ministry is fun and very fulfilling, it is certainly not for everyone. Leading a tech ministry is not for just anyone either, regardless of skill and knowledge.

I’ve known some very knowledgable, very skilled, and very creative people who would be a disaster as a tech ministry leader. An effective church leader needs to have a clear vision that compliments the church’s overall vision. She, or he, should be protective and appreciative of their volunteers. Most people don’t have a clue what is involved in making a Sunday service happen, so the tech leader has to make sure the volunteers aren’t stressed and overwhelmed with unrealistic tasks and requests.

A good tech ministry leader is organized and consistent in processes, scheduling, and the like. All the technical skill in the world will still leave you with a mess if you don’t have that. And most importantly, the number one concern of a tech leader must be to get the message of Christ out to the audience.
