Searching for Church Geeks
A few years ago, St. Fabian made a wise investment in advanced technology which has made our church and school stand out as a parish dedicated to forward thinking. A wireless campus, simulcast capabilities for the church, equipping the Fr. Norbert Social Hall for presentations and video monitoring were among the technology added. Years later, we are learning that this investment requires a team of volunteers to not only utilize, but also maintain. We already have an IT group who meet a few times a year to manage the campus technology and plan for the future. While this group accomplishes plenty in their brief, early morning meetings, a few new team members would always be welcomed.
Another area where we could certainly improve is the addition of the audio/visual equipment mainly used in the church and social hall. It turns out when we host presenters or celebrate major liturgies, the parish staff is often occupied with responsibilities of the event, and most importantly, working to ensure the visitors feel welcomed. Recording the event or presentation to be shared online is an additional responsibility that repeatedly fails to be accomplished or is an afterthought. Having an A/V team to volunteer to set up, record and place online, would ensure that the parish staff is available to do what they do best and that we are utilizing this investment to its fullest potential.
We don’t have to call you a church geek, but we would like to be able to call you. With a few volunteers stepping up and becoming familiar with our equipment, the responsibility would never be a burden. The parish poured its resources into this technology, please help me identify those who would be willing to assist us in carrying out the mission. Perhaps that could mean putting this article in front of someone you know who is perfect for the job. Contact me at email@example.com or 248.553.4610 ext 222, suggest a good time to meet, and we will see if we can bring a few of our best church geeks together.
