Training Required

Join the techies who make the audio-visual elements of BPC worship services possible. After training on our equipment and programs, project the lyrics, videos, and other images used during musical worship and other elements of the service. Volunteers can serve on a rotating schedule so they do not have to cover every Sunday.
