Roster Role: Ash 10:30am Lead tech
Audio Visual technology is a powerful communication tool that can really help encourage the congregation when used well. On the other hand, when things go wrong it can be a powerful distraction! Overseeing the technology with skill and diligence allows the congregation to hear clearly what's happening at the front, be immersed in our corporate music-making, and stimulated by various types of visual media.
- Frequency: Lead techs are rostered on about once a month
- Training: Initial training takes about 90 minutes, with annual refresher and extension training
- Before the service: arrive 30 minutes early to set up
What does a win look like?
- Everything is set up in good time
- The congregation hears everything they should, and nothing else
- The congregation sees everything they should on the screen, and nothing else
- The next service's lead tech finds all the equipment in good condition and the right place
