Tech Upgrades and Leadership: Bridging the Gap

How do we, as technical personnel, communicate effectively with our leaders so they not only understand the critically important function our ministry fills, but also find a way to work together to better and more fully support the mission and vision of the church?

This session will dive into the realities of the load that rests on the shoulders of leadership, but also call those same leaders up to own the additional responsibilities they must shoulder in a post-COVID world where media ministry is a requirement. It will also address questions and issues of how leaders think, how to connect with them and find common ground by changing our mindset to that of a leader so that we can better understand and appreciate what they are balancing every day; while also providing key strategies for communicating day-to-day struggles and how to approach topics such as budget, upgrades and vision.


  • A toolbox of methods to utilize when approaching and interacting with church leadership in positive ways

  • An understanding of the incredible balancing act and sheer load of responsibilities on our church leadership

  • Strategies for being part of vision-casting and mission development discussions to better support your leadership so they, in turn, can better support your ministry
