Media Ministry

Media Director: Derrick Anderson, Assistant Media Director: Kamerion Coleman, Assistant Media Director: Kasius Coleman, Media Helper: Carmine Clark 


Media ministers work behind the scenes to make it possible to share the message of a church with large groups of people through amplified sound, recordings, PowerPoint presentations, Web pages and other forms of communication. In larger congregations, the media ministry is led by a paid staff person who coordinates the efforts of a team of media ministry volunteers, while in smaller congregations the entire ministry is handled by volunteers.

The media ministry team is responsible for all of the technical functions of a congregation. 

The media ministry team has a wide variety of responsibilities. During worship services or other large events, they run the sound board for the worship band and speakers, including the pastor. If PowerPoint or other media are used, the media specialist sets up all of the necessary equipment and ensures that it will run smoothly. Some media specialists tape and distribute audio or video recordings of the sermon. Some churches broadcast their service live either on television or by creating a live stream on the church’s website. In some congregations, the media ministry team updates the entire church website.

Time Commitment
In churches that have a paid media ministry staff person, the position is often part time. Many churches ask media ministry volunteers to make an ongoing commitment. A media ministry volunteer can serve at a particular service or event every week. Media ministry team members who participate in setup must arrive as much as an hour before the event or service begins.
