Production Team Growth

The Team has grown! In the past few months we’ve added several people to the team. Sam, Dave, Jim, Dylan, and Jeff. There’s a simple strategy for growing our team, which we should always be in the process of doing. It’s called Intentional Apprenticing or Shadowing. It goes something like this:

1. Watch me do what I do.
2. Help me do what I do.
3. I watch you do what I did.
4. You do it on your own.

That’s the simple 4-step apprenticing/shadowing process. It’s a great way to recruit and expand our team. I am seeking to find more people on or off the team who would be interested in learning what I do – the Producing aspect of the service. It takes someone who can see everything at once and make sure things are progressing in the manner we want it to progess. Right now there are three of us that I know are willing and able to perform this function: Dan Fisher, Greg Loraditch and myself.

The reason I need to expand this position to more people on the team is that I need to be more free to do other things on Sunday. For example, speak in main service, speak in UpStreet or 180, or lead worship in one of our environments. So I turn to you.

I want to do a three-part challenge:

1. Find someone to shadow you.
2. If you are willing and able to learn the Producer position let me know.
3. When small groups start up again the fall, join one.
