What is the Friendship Media Ministry?
The purpose of the Media Ministry here at Friendship United Methodist Church is to carry the Gospel of Jesus Christ to our visually-driven, ever-changing world through the use of technology and media, and to equip other ministries of the church to use digital and electronic media as a worship and outreach tool.
This ministry not only provides the technical support required for our worship services, but also records various events, teachings, and sermons, which will be made available on DVD and for viewing on our Friendship YouTube Channel and available in the media archive on the new www.friendshipwyoming.com.
There are many opportunities for you to serve in Media Ministry. Friendship Media Ministry staff is here to help you learn what you'll need to know, and have fun in the process! If you would like more information about our media ministry or want to volunteer as a team member, contact Chris Hursh via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you have a natural gift for electronics, sound or video equipment? Or maybe you just have a strong desire to learn, along with a passion to serve the body of Christ?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you are invited to join us!
Opportunities to serve:
One person is needed for each responsibility so we can record our services to the community.
Videographer/Editor - The camera operator works behind the cameras during services and records the services. This operator may also serve as a roaming videographer to capture events around the church that occur outside of the worship service times. They may also assist with the editing of the segments and other special event videos.
Audio Engineer - You will control the volume levels for all mics and instruments used during the service. This audio is mixed in the media booth and will feed both the sanctuary speakers and the live/recorded media of the service.
Video Producer - (ProPresenter 5) - Located in the media booth, you will work on a computer and change visual displays, play recorded media, visual announcements, etc. that are projected on both front walls. This computer will also feed our online live stream/recording/DVD of the service with the appropriate graphics, bible verses, etc.
Web team - You can join the web team as a contributor to content by using your writing, editing or photography skills. We are using a "content management system" or "dashboard" that allows us to add content to the site without the need for coding or programming skills.
Still Photographer - If you have a digital camera, are familiar with sharing files online and are interested in taking pictures of people, we need you! We need pictures of church life, services and events taken on a regular basis.
Graphic Designer - If you have a computer and are familiar with desktop publishing software like InDesign, Photoshop Elements or others that are similar for layout and image creation there are many ways your skills can help. There is a constant need to promote announcements and events through our web site, signage and other digital media.
Video Ministry Team Member - (At-Large Helper) - You can join the video team as a camera operator and/or editor for special productions. We will be recording events and testimonies, and creating short videos for web site use or promotion of ministries. If you are already making home videos you have a head start, but if not experienced, just interested, let us know.
