Well hello there WordPress. It has been a while. Things did call down after Easter a bit, so I’m not sure why this blog went out the window. But anyway, I AM BACK!
It is an exciting time for Prince of Peace because we have two Pastoral candidates visiting our church over the next two weekends! Hopefully God guides Prince of Peace to choose the right man for the job.
In the music department, I am preparing to get things back in full swing once again. Choir has been on summer break, but will resume at the end of this month. Our Worship Team (we are now a “Worship Team” and not a “Praise Band” — this helps us focus more on being a leading team and less of a performing band) is lacking a bit. We are in dire need of a bass player and one or two guitar players. We are holding open auditions on August 14 for all instrumentalists and vocalists. Hopefully we will get a pretty good turn out and we can fill our vacancies!
I just scrolled down to read some of my last couple of posts — wow… a lot has happened in my department since then! I hired an audio tech for our contemporary worship service and that has been a tremendous help! If you are reading this and you attend a contemporary worship service, be sure to thank your audio tech(s)!
In other “Austin Wessel’s Job” news, Prince of Peace Facebook is booming! I know the headline on this page doesn’t specify, but I am also the Director of Social Media … and the DIrector of Worship Technology … let’s just get it all out there on the table. Anyway, I am playing with Facebook Ads which, so far, seem to be pretty successful (on Facebook anyway). I will know the paid advertising is truly successful when I hear someone say they walked through our doors because they heard about us on Facebook! That would be awesome!
Well, I believe it to be my bedtime…and probably yours, too… “BUT MOMMMM!!!!!” … Sorry, couldn’t resist. Tomorrow I will be attending the Church Media U Conference here in Orlando. I’m pretty excited to see what they have to say and offer! The conference is touring to various cities, to check it out! http://www.churchmediau.com
Until next time — God’s blessings on you!
