Heavy is the head that wears too many hats.
There’s no reconciling the part-time position of “Media Coordinator” I held at The Gathering and what I spent 30+ hours a week accomplishing in a year and a half. Rather than what the title might imply, I was tasked with managing the following laundry list:
- Design, launch and administration of website
- Technical prep, launch & operation of “video venue” satellite site
- Individual branding for multiple ministries
- Creation of motion graphics for promotional videos
- Concept & production of ministry and event promotion video
- Volunteer design, copywriting, video, photo & IT teams
- Title, copy & artwork for sermon series
- Online congregational community network
- Weekly sermon videos and podcast publishing
- Design layout of all print collateral
- Content for owned social channels
Maintaining a high quality of work against the sheer volume was tough, but a vision runs poorly when its vehicle is fueled with impurities.
In the end, it was an unsustainable workload on top of my pre-existing full-time job, but the experience gained was invaluable, and the work produced remains a hard-won component of my professional portfolio.
- 25% annual increase in average weekly attendance (2011-2013)
- In-service video content highlighting missions efforts resulted in cumulative donations nearing $500,000
- Executed the workload of a full-time position in a part-time role
