BEING A TEAM IN AN "I" CULTURE
Musicians get pegged with a lot of negative stereotypes: Distracted, scattered, and sometimes absorbed with individual focus and goals. Some of these stereotypes ring true when you place a lot of talented creatives on one team. Each person comes to the table with a different method of arriving at the goal. In this session, Pastor Donnie will be sharing from experience how to bridle the creativity and individual talents of your team to work together toward a central vision.
Tech & Live Worship
IN EAR MONITORING FOR BEGINNERS
TECH & MUSICIANSHIP
It's hard to lead a congregation into worship when you are wrestling with the sound team to get the perfect mix in your stage wedge, just to have one of the other vocalists ask for a change that completely throws you off. The sound team also fights an uphill battle as they try to overpower all the stage noise coming from monitors and amps. While all of this is happening, the entire worship team is exposing themselves to harmful levels of noise, which can do permanent damage. Switching to in ear monitoring can seem overwhelming, both practically and financially, but there are many ways to implement in ear monitoring that are both easy to learn and easy on your budget. In this session, we will explore some simple, budget-friendly ways to stay on tempo, protect your ears, and help you remain focused on leading your congregation.
