Is your worship space a canvas?

<? echo $type; ?> Is your worship space a canvas?

Who in our worship environments are the most overlooked? No question, it’s the people in the sound booth taking care of all those technical details that can make something go from good to great!

When I started my journey as a children’s worship director, I sat down with the “tech guys” to let them know how important their work was. Video and audio laid the foundation of all we did on stage in ministry. It is a huge juggling act to manage the music, slides, lights and timing of each element. Done well and the stage becomes a canvas on which they can paint an incredible picture to bring our worship to an even deeper level.

It was the first time that our Audio/Visual intern had ever had anyone validate and elevate the work that he did. As I shared before in a previous comment last week, Camron Ware started his journey at the young age of 15 helping with audio. Since his start as a young teen, he has had many people encourage him to continue pushing toward new limits. Now he’s traveling the world helping other churches revolutionize their environments! https://www.visualworshipper.com

Camron’s story is just one of many – of youth and adults who will change our worship experiences if we give them the freedom to develop and the encouragement to try new things. We can do everything we can to help influence their journey – but the truth is, they will greatly influence our journey if we let them.

How do you value and encourage your tech team? What are some ways you creatively use your worship space as a canvas?
