BREAKOUT A. - Creating Services in Community

(Brandon Yip - Bayside; Stef Cassetto - Saddleback; Daniel Scotti - Saddleback) - It takes a village. Our church services are made up of many components, and it requires all of them working together to have a successful outcome. Many times tech people let the creative people figure out the content and just execute what they’re told to. In this breakout, we’ll look at ways that creative and technical artists can collaborate for the benefit of their services and their relationship with each other.

BREAKOUT B. - Planning for the Weekend

(Jessica Wolfe - Kensington Community Church) - There are a lot of details to take care of for a weekend service. What’s the best way to go about getting it all done? Most of that happens during the weeks leading up to the actual service. We’ll look at the type of meetings to have, how to organize information, and ways to communicate new information as it comes, among other topics.

BREAKOUT C. - Leading from the Middle

(Stef Cassetto - Saddleback) - The role of a producer can be a tight spot. You are typically stuck between creatives and tech people, senior pastor and the rest of the team. While this can be an uncomfortable spot to be in, God created many people to lead from this location. In this breakout, we’ll talk about ways to embrace leading from the middle and how to thrive as a producer.

BREAKOUT D. - Creating a Lasting Culture

(Todd Elliott - Fusion Productions; Stef Cassetto - Saddleback) - As a leader of technical and creative artists, it is our responsibility to create the type of culture on our team that we believe in. It isn’t going to make itself. Too often, it is easiest to point a finger if the culture isn’t thriving; yet as leaders, we must push for the type of environment we want for our teams.

BREAKOUT E. - Using Planning Center Effectively

(Joy Bork - Willow Creek) - Oh PCO. How we love you! This has been an invaluable tool for church production teams everywhere, now how do we use it to the fullest?   |   224.829.0929   |   ©2016 First In Last Out
