No more than 6 hours to complete a project; Most projects conducted on Friday evenings and/or Saturday mornings; The team will not accept more than 2 projects a month, so a waiting list may be instituted; Small projects only that may be subject to a project budget that will be determined by team; No home improvement/remodeling projects, only maintenance or repair.
Help needed! Our television and media ministries help us communicate the Word with our congregation, our community, and the world. We have filled some of our open positions, but still have a need for a sound operator and a remote camera operator.
