3 Things People Assume About Tech Leaders

By Dennis Choy May 29, 2018

Sometimes tech people get a bad rap. We are behind the scenes, stealth-like servants who really just want to do the best job we can with what has been given to us. But we are also usually introverted and don’t like conflict, so we avoid it until our backs are against the wall or incredibly […]

In the church tech world, even missing one cue like forgetting to unmute the pastor’s mic can be a disastrous mistake. The behind-the-scenes stealth workers know as tech artists have a very high expectation every weekend. To be perfect is the normal.

By andrew May 29, 2018

Spending the better part of my like serving others through music and show production has given me the opportunity to develop three basic credos I use frequently.

BALANCING the BOUNDARY 

By andrew May 29, 2018

Leadership

Go Therefore

By Dennis Choy May 24, 2018

I’m Not A Leader

By Justin Firesheets May 23, 2018

Leadership
I’m not a leader, and that’s okay. I’m a doer. I don’t like being in front of people. I don’t motivate the masses like William Wallace. I’ve never inspired anyone to higher heights because of a rousing speech. In fact, I really don’t even like talking very much. I’d rather just sit here, do what […]

Woe Is Me: Fighting The Poverty Mentality in Production

By Justin Firesheets May 7, 2018

There probably isn’t a technical director anywhere in the country who has everything they want. All of us, in one way or another, want something more. More money. More gear. More time. More people. Regardless of the size of the congregation, I’m sure that nearly all of us have been in that last boat before […]

A Healthy Heart

By Justin Firesheets May 4, 2018

The Bible is very clear that the heart is the key to living a healthy life. Proverbs 4:23 (NIV) says to guard the heart, because “everything you do flows from it.” In the NLT, the same verse says that how we guard the heart “determines the course of your life.” As a leader, but also […]
