SPECIAL EVENTS TEAM DESCRIPTION
The goal of the special event’s team will be to coordinate and organize resources to ensure every special event, from set-up to tear-down, is met. Collaboration will take place with the pastor and/or marketing team to assure maximum publicity and announcements are exhausted. This team will also work in concert with the outreach ministry team, to determine if evangelism/outreach opportunities can coincide with future event.
PREVIOUS SPECIAL EVENTS TO CONSIDER: SWEETHEART BANQUET (FEB), MOTHER’S DAY CONCERT, FATHER’S DAY SERVICE, SHARE-A-THONS, FUND RAISERS, ETC.
SPECIAL EVENTS TEAM REQUIREMENTS
- A Servant’s Heart. The core motivation for the special events ministry is serving. In Peter 4:10 it reads, Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.
- Organization. This servant leader must have a love for organization and collaboration. In 1 Corinthians 14:40 it reads, But all things should be done decently and in order.
- Expectations. The guidelines for staging team membership are:
- personal relationship with Jesus Chris
- a faith outlined by the creeds of the church
- an active membership in the ongoing life of the church
- Commitment. Attendance at workshops or training sessions, meeting an hour before service begins
- Preparation. Preparation begins on a day other than Sunday. Team will meet on a weekday to discuss ideas for the lecture series and preparing the stage
- Sacrifice. Being on the special events team means sacrifice. If you’re called to this team, you’re not there just to enjoy and receive. You’re worshiping in a different way. You’re attentive to what God wants to do.
SPECIAL EVENTS TEAM DYNAMICS
The Special Events Team will encounter all kinds of people and various degrees of personalities. Hence, the following are practical suggestions for dealing with team members:
- Be sensitive. This may be new to the member, so, be patient.
- Inspire. Building an environment to freely be creative is important.
- Mentor. Be ready to guide, teach and support your team with their ideas. The goal is to help the member grow a sense of ownership to their position and to their church.
