James Drews is looking for volunteers for 7:45am and 9am worship times on Sundays to mange the sound system control board. James will provide adequate training to help you know how to turn the microphones on and off at appropriate times, as well as controlling the volume of those microphones. These are the basics, and if you are willing to learn more, he will teach you! Major qualifications are simply a willingness to learn and the reliability to show up when you are scheduled. This is a great opportunity for high schoolers to learn a new skill to take with them moving forward.
