How-To Lead Your Volunteer Team as a Volunteer

In Extras, home_page, Web Articlesby admin

By John Chevalier
Serving in the local church can be a joyful experience, especially in technical ministries where we get to apply our tech skills to mix our musicians as they lead our people in worship. But at times the leadership piece can be challenging. Most churches are too small to hire a technical staff to oversee services and have to rely on volunteers to get the job done. In most cases the Technical Director is also a volunteer and leading a team of volunteers – as a volunteer – can be challenging.
Your audio engineers have full time jobs and, in most cases, families. However, the need still exists to not only have a team ready to run audio, media, and sometimes video production, but there is scheduling and training that needs to be constantly happening. I find that there is a constant tension of balancing commitment with the understanding that those serving in technical ministries are making a sacrifice by being there. Along with the worship leader and musicians, your tech team spends more time at the church than do most other people involved in ministry at your church. Because of this, there is a huge need to build a team around you so that you don’t burn out yourself or others. I want to encourage you by sharing some things that have worked for me as a volunteer leader of volunteers in a ministry that requires a serious commitment.
The main thing you can do for people is support them. Support is more than just encouragement, although that goes a long way. If you want to have a team for the long haul, you should support your team in three specific areas: Professionally, Personally, and Physically.

C4 Church is located in Ajax, ON, in the suburbs of Toronto, Canada’s largest city. We are passionate about the power of short films and media to reach our community. For many people, their first introduction to C4 Church is through an image or a video posted on social media by someone in their network. We want to create media that inspires faith, draws people closer to Jesus Christ, and breaks down barriers or negative stereotypes that people have about what they think church is like.

Creative Film at C4 Church is a growing area, but in our few short years of integrating it into our services and online experiences, we have learned a few things.

Video Post-Production and Delivery: Part Three

In Extras, home_page, Web Articlesby tfwm

by John Chevalier and Bryan Cole

We end our series on video post-production and delivery, talking about storage and delivery of your content. Just like in the previous parts, how you intend to use your content will ultimately determine the delivery method, and storage that will work for you.

Have a Plan:

The biggest challenge I see with churches embarking on a video ministry for the first time, is that they don’t have a process as all. This is mostly because it started with a volunteer, and his or her personal rig (for shooting and editing.) It evolved into a team, but the source content became scattered. “Who has the clip of the guest speaker from last Sunday,” you ask? “Oh, that’s on Jeff’s computer – he’s out of town on business.” Of course, that’s the content that your pastor asked specifically for in this weeks’ video news segment.

Update on the 600 MHz Spectrum in Canada

In Audio, Extras, home_pageby tfwm

As the FCC, in the US, and Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED), continue to find new ways to make more spectrum available for mobile broadband wireless devices, we in the pro audio world must revise our wireless frequency use. A broadband wireless device is a smartphone or IPad etc. that can connect to the Internet and stream or download content without connecting through a local Wi-Fi network. This extremely popular activity is requiring more and more frequencies to handle the demand. The large pool of reserved for TV but mostly unused spectrum is being “repurposed” to accommodate the need. Unused that is, except by wireless microphones.

Since the mid-1980s, we in the Pro Audio world have been very fortunate to have had free access to all the locally unused UHF Broadcast TV channels from 14 through to 69 or 470 to 698 MHz for our wireless microphones, In-Ear Monitors and Wireless Intercom Systems. Using this large portion of the radio spectrum has allowed us to easily find multiple clear frequencies. The only conditions were, and still are, that we didn’t cause any interference to a licensed user (Broadcaster) and that we were prepared to accept interference to us, if it occurred. By just having the knowledge of which TV channels were locally occupied, this unofficial arrangement worked well for more than three decades.

Q&A with Russ Gentner, President and CEO of Listen Technologies

In December 2017, Listen Technologies announced its acquisition of the Audio Everywhere brand and products from ExXothermic, Inc., a global technology leader in Wi-Fi streaming technology. Technologies for Worship recently caught up with Russ Gentner, president and CEO of Listen Technologies, and inquired about the significance of this announcement.

TFWM: Why did Listen Technologies acquire the Audio Everywhere brand and products?

Russ: Listen Technologies has partnered with Dr. Lance Glasser and his team at ExXothermic, Inc., the developer of Audio Everywhere, over the years because they share our passion for designing technology and solutions that deliver clear sound to everyone, regardless of setting or acoustics.
