Worship software can seem complex to those who don’t regularly use it, so some advocate for staff to do most of the heavy lifting and give the simple task of running it to volunteers. Other churches have a lot of success in running ProPresenter with volunteers doing everything. So, how should you approach the issue of running ProPresenter with volunteers? Let’s look at both sides.
Why does makes sense to run ProPresenter with volunteers?
Volunteers - ProPresenter - Lot - Advantages
When it comes to using volunteers to run ProPresenter, there ARE a lot of advantages to consider.
First, for them, it’s not just a job. They’re not there because they need money. They don’t do it because it puts a roof over their heads. Think of it this way: If you do something each week, to be a help, to advance the mission, or just because you feel like you were made to do it, you can run a long time on that fuel.
Job - Contrast - Wage - Reality - Restaurant
Think about your first “real” job, in contrast. Making minimum wage, or slightly above it, was great…at first. Then, as reality started to set in, you might have continued to work, but the other restaurant, or video store, or whatever, down the street that paid more, started to look more attractive.
Contrast that to the first time you ever did something that was “your thing.” Did pay matter as much when you felt like you were made to do it? Was there a sense of satisfaction you just couldn’t describe?
Volunteers - Church - Street - Mindset - Money
Volunteers can be like that. They don’t get into the “the other church down the street pays more for this” mindset. That’s because they don’t do it for the money. They do it for other reasons.
Let’s face it, volunteers make A LOT of sense, financially, for churches because they’re free. You might wish you could hire someone to...
