First day on the job was yesterdayâ€¦ I started serving at Church in a new capacity, as the Stage Manager. On the first Sunday of each month I have a new list of stuff to doâ€¦ it seems to be mainly helping the producer from across the auditorium, preparing for and to make sure that things go smoothly during the service; troubleshooting the backstage issues (sound, lighting, music and mikes); rustling up the band or pastor and cueing them to the stage; running the green room; and attending the production meeting; I even got a 10-second stage debutâ€¦ grabbing the worship leaderâ€™s mike stand!!
Dress code: black shirt and blue jeans. Lots of wires and gadgets.
One really cool part of this is that it goes from sleepy-quiet to a 3-alarm fire in a snapâ€¦ best be on your toes back there!!
I especially enjoyed spending time with the band! I think they helped me yesterday more than I helped them. A fun group of people to serve with.
This was completely new to me, Iâ€™ve been serving on the host committee and helping with the setup/breakdown of the kids environments since arriving at Access Church last fall. Iâ€™m sticking with this on the third Sunday of each month. I love both of these too, the host committee is all about welcoming the regulars, newcomers and guests. Setup/breakdown is even fun hereâ€¦ we have an awesome group of people at Church â€“ Fully Involved and Passionate about Serving the Lord!!
Servingâ€¦ just do it!! I love it, front to back.
