I've worked in several different church environments over the course of my adult life, not only as a volunteer in the media department, but also as a contractor and now as a full time Video Art Director. One of the most frustrating things about trying to do professional creative work in a church has always been the lack of understanding from the Pastors about the time it takes to make good content. I have always thought that there had to be a lucky guy somewhere that was not getting instructions for the weekend videos on the Tuesday before it is supposed to play.
This book is really an eye opener, not only to what is possible, but also to what needs to happen to make sure that church staff can have a family life. I now get to experience working in an environment where we coordinate with the pastoral team to make sure our efforts are complementary. I generally know what content needs to be made 9 weeks ahead which allows proper design and coordinating with volunteers so that there is time to produce better content.
The difference is so huge, not only in the impact we all can make together, but also in my own personal life. I'm not working until 1am on Sunday to make sure the video I was told about three days ago gets done. I go home on Thursday afternoon knowing that everything for the weekend is done and has been tested through the house system. This peace of mind and the ability to enjoy the ministry as well as a family life is a direct result of my church implementing the processes outlined in this book both as a creative team and as a teaching team.

This book addresses the problems churches face between creatives and the staff they work with in both a practical and realistic way. The author's approach in describing these challenges and offering solutions is friendly yet authoritative. The book is a great help particularly as it details first year problems and offers practical and specific solutions which will help staff members avoid long term negative patterns.Was this review helpful?
