Unless you are in a large church or school near Orlando, Nashville, or other major recording, theme park or tourist hub that employs lots of professional audio engineers, chances are high that your Tech Team are ‘volunteers’ who have never been paid outside the church or school to perform the work they are doing for your organization.

Yet we wonder why our system doesn’t sound as good as some secular venue or mega church down the road that has a salaried audio engineer on staff. Training for the Tech Team should be high on the list of needs for any House of Worship or school with a volunteer staff. They will learn what to do on a console or other equipment to get what you need. More importantly, they will learn what NOT to touch once it is set properly.
