We're live at the National Worship Leader's Conference! And as such, it's time for a deep discussion about worship, being encouraged, having a network and being cynical. Get your notebook out, you'll need it!
We're live from WFX this week! We talk about making it through tough times, getting on board with the vision of the church and how to solve morale problems (among other things). It's a great episode with lots of laughs and truth.
It's another week of small-church mailbag! This week we tackle the question of how much the worship leader should be involved in tech, and how to translate mission into tech equipment. For fun, providing constructive criticism to the band.
It's small church night! We tackle your questions on doing tech in small churches. This week we discuss helping students "get" the importance of what we do and determine if the super-cheap option is in fact best (spoiler: probably not).
How do you expand your seating capacity when there is no more room? The Chapel in Buffalo has a great idea, and we learn all about it today. We also learn why relationships are so important, and find out what's in the news!
This week, we geek out with Mike Johns. It's all about AppleScript, Automator, MIDI and how you can find ways to automate and simplify almost anything in your tech booth. Save time you didn't know you had!
It's all about installs this week. We talk about installing a slick Dante-based audio system with the Yamaha CL, ETC's Net3 Protocol, a cost-effective video wall and some do's and don't's for installations.
Starting off in this business, we all have a lot to learn. This week, three veteran TDs (with 60+ years of combined experience!) share what they wish they knew when they started out. You might be surprised at the answers.
As the title suggests, it's all about audio this week. We talk about tuning PAs, the new Yamaha CL5 in use, and a surprisingly powerful and affordable mixing system that we really like.
We're back with another live, on-location edition of CTW! This time we're on site at Echo, and we're discussing the importance of passing on our knowledge, being in community and why Duke is not a Cirque du Soleil dancer.
How to train volunteers is one of the most frequently asked questions here at CTA. Tonight we tackle that one, and talk about what ages to recruit for your tech team. Some great information on this show...
Audio networking is our topic tonight! We talk all about Dante, AVB, Layer 2, Layer 3 and even some "not really network" protocols like AES50, MADI and A-Net. Have questions about networking? We've got answers. And maybe some more questions...
How do you integrate new volunteers into your tech ministry? How do you train them, keep them engaged and encourage them to grow? We answer these questions and more this week as we talk about building our teams.
We're talking visual worship this week! Our panel digs into the concept of how visuals as an art form can draw people in to worship, how the younger generation responds in worship and we learn about the Salt Conference in Nashville.
This week, the guys tackle your questions! We open up the mailbag and tackle questions on how to best purchase an AVL system, getting the kick and bass to play nice and some options for recording your services for video editing.
Building volunteer teams is perhaps one of the toughest things we do as technical leaders. Our panel today talks about building unity, training and retaining tech teams that serve one another and the mission of the church.
It's InfoComm 2013 time! And we camp out in the palatial CTW Florida studios and talk about the cool stuff we saw in the first two days of the show. And it gets a bit goofy...
This week we start out talking about how to prepare for big events. Then the conversation morphs into how we can take care of ourselves and our team during those events, and pretty much all year long.
It's all about reverbs and delays this week! Our panel of experts talk about how they use reverb & delay, what settings they start with and how to get the most out of the gear you have.
This past week was Gurus 2013 and CTW was there! In this special episode, we interview 40 people who were there, and we did it live at the show! There's lots of gold to mine in this episode, trust me.
