Full disclosure: I’m extra of a pastor than a techie. Don’t get me flawed – I like all features of utilizing media to create experiences the place individuals develop nearer to Jesus. I like computer systems, cameras, lighting, audio, units, switchers, and different manufacturing gear. However my ardour is individuals.

  3. Write one observe (a bodily observe or that you just mail, not an e-mail or textual content) a day telling one crew member how glad you might be they’re in your crew and that you’re praying for them.
  4. Reserve one evening a month the place you and your partner invite one other couple or a number of members of your crew over to your own home to hang around.
