Technical Ministry

What does tech do?

Churches today depend on technology to communicate the truth of God’s Word both live and online. Our Technical Ministry team is crucial in making that happen!
Whether you are an expert in audio mixing or have never touched a camera in your life – you can join the team!

Team Values:


Seriously, your desire to serve God and volunteer at First Free is really awesome. We know you have busy lives and lots to do, so the fact that you want to join the Production and Worship teams to serve and honor God alongside us means a lot to us.


We think we are funny. We laugh a lot. We tease. We kid. We care. Because honestly, leading worship and facilitating learning and growing in services is hard work. There’s a lot at stake each weekend. But the weight of the work should always be met with light-heartedness. We work together, laugh together, cry together, and pray together. We are a community. We serve. Sometimes the hours are long. Sometimes we get frustrated. But at the end of the day, we are brothers, sisters and partners in ministry and our love for Christ and our desire to grow will give us the grace and strength we need to be a team.


The emerging Production team is not “one-size fits all.” There are some very unique and specific skill sets required in some areas. But we are committed to working with you to explore your potential roles within the team and to helping you find a good fit (even if it’s in a different ministry). We are also committed to training you further in your skill sets and letting you spread your wings into new areas of service.


In order for this to work, we all need to function as a professional, cohesive team. What does that mean? It means we pray for one another. We honor our commitments and show up on time.  We work to keep our hearts focused and our behavior above reproach in every aspect of our lives. We ask for help when we need it. We don’t tear down other team members or the church body. We lift one another up when we see they need a hand. Most importantly, we keep our eyes on Christ and we give our best to Him each and every day.
