Tech Team Background
We currently have 38 volunteers on our Tech Team. The youngest is 10 (minimum age) and the oldest is 76.
We have four totally different services each weekend, one on Saturday night and three on Sunday morning. Each service has a different band, praise team or choir, etc. The pastor is the only constant at each service. We have thirty minutes for breakdown, setup, and sound checks between services on Sunday morning.
Each service has their own Tech Team so we have sixteen different people working each weekend. Each member of the team works 1 to 3 weekends per month. They must be off at least one weekend per month
At each worship service we have a different person for sound (40 channel A & H), lights (60 channel ETC Element), projection (Power Point and video clips), and video (all services are video taped).
Each new member on the Team starts on either video or projection and after showing interest in continuing on the Team can work up to lights and then sound if they are up to the challenge and show continued interest.

Statement of Purpose
The Christ United Methodist Church Technical Ministries Team exists for one purpose: to be part of a ministry that will directly support and reinforce anything and everything that goes forth from Christ United Methodist Church that requires the support of audio, computers, graphics, Internet, lighting, projection, video editing, video taping, or any other form of technical or stage support, in a manner that is pleasing to God, and will provide for a better reception and understanding by all those who are touched by our efforts. Through our efforts Christ United Methodist Church will be better able to help people relate to God in a life-changing way.
Statements of Direction
We are to encourage and support other members of the team and those whom we serve through our technical gifts.
We are committed to being professional in our craft, in the execution of our skills and our relationships with others.
We are to submit to each other and to our leadership, out of respect for each other as fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.
We are responsible, individually and as a team, for our technical and spiritual development through study and commitment.
We are to build up one another, and have the responsibility of eliminating any word or action that is not constructive to our team.
As we serve, we embrace the scripture “Don’t do anything from selfish ambition or from a cheap desire to boast, but be humble toward one another, always considering others better than yourselves. And look out for one another’s interests, not just your own.” Philippians 2:3-4 TEV
