What resources are available for training church tech team members?

  185 views

Wondering how you all train your potential tech team members. Sound, projection, lighting etc. Do you have someone in your church who is proficient in each department to teach others or are volunteers handed the keys and told to make it up as they go?

I'm interested in making sure that our incoming techies have a good understanding before they are put incharge, are there any good resources out there for training in these areas?

You bring up a very good issue.  I create our digital imagery and videos at Evergreen Ministries and really wanted to make it into a Media team all participating in creating content.  I had about 10 people interested in learning, but when it came time to train, only 2 people came for more than a week.  I think I have found that a lot of people are interested in doing these types of things, but since doing it well takes so much time and learning, not many stick with it for one reason or another. 

What I learned is that I should have broken down the overall scope of work into smaller tasks and allowed each person to take a part that they want to do and teach them to do that well instead of trying to teach all things to all people.  May be more time consuming, but you don't overwhelm people that way.
