Most volunteers on church sound teams are experts in all kinds of things-except audio. You don't have time to take an engineering class, and yet if you feel a calling to serve your church you need to learn how to do the best you can. Mixing for God is designed by an experienced audio engineer and college professor to help you understand what's going on. You'll start by analyzing what went wrong during a disastrous Sunday morning scenario, then we walk you through setting up for a service. Next comes refining your mic technique, using signal processing, and actually hearing whether the guitar is too loud (it always is!). We'll discuss causes and solutions for lots of typical problems we all deal with, then dig a bit deeper into the concepts and theory behind all of this. As a college professor for over 25 years, the author knows how to design materials to help you learn the how-to and the why without getting lost in technical jargon. Features: - Practical advice for setting up on stage and using microphones - Console operation, mixing concepts, and using signal processors - Why your sanctuary sounds awful (and what to do about it) - How to (legally) record your services - Diagrams to visually explain concepts and signal flow - Lots of audio examples so you can actually hear what we're talking about - Explanations and answers to the problems and issues you run into every week With a hands-on, practical approach, lots of explanatory diagrams, and tons of audio examples, this book can give you a much clearer understanding of how to set up and mix better each week.

In a worship service, a great measure of responsibility rests on those who volunteer in the audio, video, and media ministries. When everything is going well, no one notices, but when the microphones don’t work or the projected song lyrics aren't in sync, everyone does. A well-functioning audio, video, and media team can help the congregation enter into a deeper and more meaningful worship. Each area of AV ministry is included: sound, projection, lighting, audio, video, broadcast, and web. The book also provides tips and instructions on selecting equipment and the set-up, storage, operation, and maintenance of it. Other leadership topics such as trouble-shooting problems in rehearsal and during services as well as tips for working with ministry leaders, musicians, and fellow congregants are discussed. If you’re a new volunteer to this ministry or just wanting a topical refresher, this handbook is the perfect guide for you.

Working with volunteers can be a rewarding and exciting experience—for them as well as for those who recruit, train, and maintain their services. However, if church leaders are honest, they know there are times that it can be frustrating. They know that volunteers are essential, vital to creating growth and new ministries, and are the key to introducing youth and children to Jesus Christ. They have the welcoming smiles at the door, they serve the food, pray for needs, stuff bulletins, organize missions trips, and on and on. If they want to see their church grow, it must be a volunteering church, a church that runs on volunteers. The Volunteer Church was developed out of the ministry of Leith Anderson at Wooddale Church in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, where a vital and vibrant volunteer program boasting 4,000 participants grew under the leadership of Jill Fox. The principles and training have been applied in churches of all sizes and denominations in seminar settings across the country as well as at Wooddale Church. In The Volunteer Church, leaders will Learn how to effectively recruit and train volunteers Discover how to build sustainable, long-lasting ministries led by volunteers Find methods for encouraging and maintaining your volunteers for success Know how to build teams of volunteers Understand how to find the right service that fits a willing volunteer If you lead a church and are exhausted by the lack of volunteer help, or if you are a volunteer and dream of adding numbers to your team, this book is for you. If you are on a church staff and know that a new ministry is needed but volunteers and training are required to make it happen, here you will find the resources to recruit, inspire, train, and maintain the church’s most vital workforce.

Increasing numbers of churches today use high-tech tools such as videos and PowerPoint presentations in their worship services. But without wisdom, those tools can turn their services more into entertainment than worship. How can churches use technology to communicate meaning instead of seducing people with special effects? How can technology be adopted to help people connect with God and each other to foster authentic worship? High-Tech Worship? takes a careful look at these issues, giving readers practical guidance on how they can best use the gift of technology in their churches. Both clergy and lay leaders will benefit from its creative suggestions as they seek to integrate technology wisely into their worship services. Written by nationally known communications expert Quentin J. Schultze, High-Tech Worship? addresses an important yet often overlooked issue that affects the quality of worship in every church.

The informative and witty expose of the "bad science" we are all subjected to, called "one of the essential reads of the year" by New Scientist. We are obsessed with our health. And yet — from the media's "world-expert microbiologist" with a mail-order Ph.D. in his garden shed laboratory, and via multiple health scares and miracle cures — we are constantly bombarded with inaccurate, contradictory, and sometimes even misleading information. Until now. Ben Goldacre masterfully dismantles the questionable science behind some of the great drug trials, court cases, and missed opportunities of our time, but he also goes further: out of the bullshit, he shows us the fascinating story of how we know what we know, and gives us the tools to uncover bad science for ourselves.
