There are so many ways you can be involved through our media ministry.  Glance at a few of the opportunities below and contact us for more information or to observe one Sunday!  We look forward to hearing from you!
Prayer Line Encourager:  Every Sunday our Prayer Line Encouragers are overwhelmingly blessed by our television viewers who "go to church" with us via television and then call our Prayer Line to talk and pray with a Prayer Line Encourager. The testimonies are heart-touching...the blessings are great. The number of phone calls has increased dramatically. No experience necessary. Just a heart for serving one Sunday (or more) per month.
Audio Live Worship Support: With simultaneous events happening across the entire building on a Sunday, a Wednesday or a Saturday wedding or a seminar, there is a place for anyone with an ear for quality and a heart for ministry. Sunday morning worship requires a total of four audio board operators...two for broadcast and two for Front of House.  If you think you've got the "Golden Ear" let us know and we would love to get you plugged in.

Camera Operators: If you think you have an eye for good video, please let us give you an opportunity to show your stuff.  Training is provided and we would only ask that you commit to two services each month.  Over the past decade, several of our weekly volunteers have moved on to professional careers in the Broadcast industry!

Graphics Operators: If standing is not for you, but you would still like to be involved with Worship Media Team, there are 2 Graphics Operator positions during the Sunday Morning service.  We use ProPresenter software to support songs and scripture.   We also use a broadcast-quality Character Generator and a Mac Pro to support the pastor's outline and for more advanced graphics. From entry level to a professional level, we would love to have you.

Producers: For anyone who can read music and follow a timeline, opportunities abound to take on a 11px part of the big picture.  Let us know if you would be interested in an occasional producing assignment.
Technical Producers: If you like to push buttons...this is the job for you!  Seriously, the TD is one of the most technically demanding jobs on Sunday morning and we require two TD's for each Sunday worship for broadcast and one for house screens.  It takes a significant amount of training to be an accomplished TD but if you are interested, we have several experienced volunteers that would be very willing to train you.
Video Engineering: Every production that requires cameras, whether one or six cameras are used, requires a video engineer who adjusts the cameras' iris (shading.)  This is a very important part of our media ministry in order to keep the video from appearing too dark or too light.  If you have any engineering experience or if you have a technical mind and would like to learn, we would love to have you on our team.
Social Media: On Sundays we live tweet our service and stream it live to the web.  We would love for you to get involved and help us reach out the world through the internet!
