On Sunday Mornings I have quite a few responsibilities so I’ve developed a Sunday Morning Tech Checklist. I’m not in charge of the musicians’ tech, but I am in charge of just about everything else that has to do with technology. I’ve found that it is very easy to overlook something when I’m rushed on a Sunday morning. The odds of a mistake greatly increase when there is some sort of change to the norm. For example, a guest speaker that I’m supposed to brief, or a special program, etc. When I add something out of the ordinary I tend to make mistakes. For this reason I’ve created a Sunday Morning Tech Checklist to help me give my best to God.

I’ll list it below in text format, but also attach a pdf of the document too.

Please let me know if there is something you think I’ve left out. Also, I pray for the services in my car on the way to church, so please don’t think I’ve left that out.
