Worship / Leadership FAQ
1What's needed to lead worship?
Andrew strives to be simple when music and worship is involved. If possible Andrew prefers to bring a drummer & music director. The music director will be on a talk back unit to the other musicians on stage to help connect the cues and chords. A 90 minute soundcheck/practice is preferred.
2Are there specific sound requirements?
Where anything can be used like a good pair of shoes, there are certain items that Andrew prefers to stay comfortable with the things he is used to. Wired microphone with 2 channels, in-ear monitor packs (can bring our own if needed), and a reverb fx unit for vocal channels is required.
3What does leadership coaching look like?
Andrew's heart is to echo and support what senior leadership has been communicating. Typically Andrew likes to have one session (coffee or lunch is fine) with the senior leadership or team to hear the goals and guidelines for what needs to be accomplished. Following that time a conference room type setting is perfect to open up dialog with all parties involved. This can typically be anywhere from 60 mins to a half the day.
Admin Audit/Media Coaching
1What's an admin audit?
Process and procedures are the fuel of productivity. Everyone knows WHAT to do but very few know HOW to get it done. Andrew brings his experience and ability to the table to help your team create custom processes that fits your situation while retaining success in every area. From ordering and inventory to engaging and communication successfully, there is no topic left untouched by the end of this process.
2How does media coaching work?
Biggest mistake media ministries make is not using what they already have to it's fullest potential. Andrew will help you (senior leader) understand what is available to you, and how to accomplish it. While sitting down with media team members, Andrew will guide, direct, and help create great media productions that any volunteer team can own and operate.
3Who can help with our projects?
Through multiple relationships from many different circles connected with the ministry, we will connect you with the people who can help you complete any type of project.
