No matter how clear the message is being communicated, it will be lost unless the technical aspects of the services are done with excellence. We believe that those gifted to serve in a technical capacity are treated as valued members of the Worship Team. The many areas of service include: Sound, Video Projection and Lighting Operators.
If you have experience in audio, video, or lighting or are willing to learn and are being called to serve the church in any of these areas, please call the music office or e-mail Joshua.
