The September-October 2017 issue of Worship Facilities Magazine offers a glance at a Granger Community Church, and their recent install of a Lawo audio mixing console system.
Spend Time Building Relationships
Last and definitely not least, invest in your team. Take the time to get to know them. Budget for gift cards. Take a few of them out for coffee or lunch. Create spaces on Sunday for them to rub shoulders with each other and create a comfortable environment for them to hang out between services.
Teams I have led are usually there all day on Sundays, so creating a living room-like room is key to helping create an atmosphere of family.
Don’t miss this part of volunteer recruitment.
Our job is to minister to others and not just work with technology.
Take care of your volunteer team so they can in turn minister to others, and invite them to join the team, giving it a great opportunity to grow.
