Effective Training for Audio Volunteers
Effective volunteers are at the core of most church media teams. This session focuses on how to train volunteers so that they feel comfortable behind a console or running audio from a tablet during worship services and other events.
The training approach focuses on setting benchmarks for volunteers so that each can progress at his or her own pace. It also focuses on establishing a culture of mentorship and shadowing so that volunteers will train each other as the volunteer team grows.
An essential component to effective audio volunteers is establishing a culture where the volunteers know that they are an essential and appreciated part of the media team.
