Unit 8.9 Planting 12 Small Task Oriented Teams

QUOTE

Statement #3:  THE TWELVE SMALL GROUPS:

Each group, (even the Video Team) when it meets, initially led by the pastor around the core values of the church ‑ there is a time of joy and concern, praying for one another, a time of Bible study/devotion, they meet together at least twice a month. {A committee is a group that decides what others are going to do. A team decides with IT is going to do.}

$ Intercessory Prayer Team / Launch Team ‑ your future church will look like this team ‑ they anoint and pray for the empty chairs, pray for the lost, pray for those the Lord wants to come to this church, they pray in each of the empty rooms on Sunday morning,

$ Worship Planning Team, Worship Leader, and Pastor to plan 6 to 8 weeks in advance. On the first Sunday, you better have the next 7 or eight Sundays already Ain the can@ with every song, drama, video, and sermon complete. This team has a representative/convener from most of the other teams. Usually have to pay worship leaders because they are so rare. (We are looking for ways to train a pool of worship leaders.)

$ Music team to implement the music program ‑ plans the music. The performers don=t have time to get all the charts together, etc. This team overlaps with the Praise Team below.

$ Praise Team ‑ the actual singers and musicians ‑ three or four with voices and microphones ‑ don=t even think of starting worship if you don=t have those key musicians in place. Sometimes you have to pay some of your musicians, sometimes you don=t.

$ Drama Team ‑ a drama program if you have one

$ Video Team ‑ selects videos/editing

$ Electronics Team to operate sound/video equipment ‑ usually a large team

$ Logistics Team to set up and take down every Sunday morning ‑ about 20 people on this team

$ Publicity Team to do advertizing ‑ including handouts

$ Hospitality Team for food, name tag, greeters, usher people to the nursery

$ Special Events Team to secure special guest, speakers, performers, testimony by star football players that will bring Abutts in the seats.@ It=s far easier to witness to people when they are in your seats.

$ Culture Surfers Team ‑ what is hot and what=s not ‑ meets at Star Bucks, reads the magazines, and

keeps worship planning committee in touch with current issues in the culture.
