Building the Online Campus Team

Even though the Online Campus doesn't launch until January 2012, we're already starting to put together a team to help with the campus. There are a lot of great things that could be with the Online Campus. Here are some of the roles we are looking to fill on the team. Soon, we will have more specifics with each role and hope to have the time commitment it would be for each of them. Some of these roles you can be trained in, so don't think you can't volunteer if you look at this list and feel you can't contribute. As well, if you have any ideas or suggestions, just let us know! We're always looking for creative and effective ways to reach people and get them connected with Jesus and what God is doing in and through Christ Community Church.

Director - Manages the video feeds and graphics that are streamed live to the Online Campus.

Coder - Create/Write custom code for the Online Campus Facebook Page. We'd like to have some customized tabs on the Facebook Page that make it a destination for people when they browse Facebook.

Social Artists - Converse and interact with people who post in the chatroom and steering the conversation back to Jesus and/or the big idea of the message. It also means talking to people throughout the week via email, Twitter, Facebook, phone or something else.

Prayer Ninjas - Obvious, we need people praying. Who knows what kind of situation you could find yourself praying for, on a Sunday morning with the Online Campus, so you need to be able to adapt on the fly. You'll be praying and talking with people during the service, and praying for people during the week. (One thing that will help us with praying for Online Campus people is a service called Mobile Amen. It's something that former CCC Pastor Joe Darago has set up at his church in Arizona.)

Videographer - Films different pieces for the Online Campus that will be played before the Online Campus service starts. Needs to be proficient with a camera and lighting.

Editor - Edit video that is shot for the Online Campus. Right now, we are thinking the video pieces will be shot late in the week, so this person will have to be able to do a quick turnaround with editing. These edited pieces will usually play before the Online Campus service starts.

Mentors/Leaders - Individuals who can disciple others and model to them what it means to be a Christian. We'll need people of all ages and backgrounds. When we start more formal online communities and groups, you'll be helping to lead them.

Producer - This person oversees everything on a Sunday morning with the Online Campus. They make sure people and things are in place so the campus runs smoothly. More often than not, I'll be filling this role. However, there will be times during the year where I'll be gone, or I'm doing something ministry-related like Baby Dedications. They can jump into any of the roles on a Sunday morning if need be.
