On Mission with Steve Murray

City on a Hill would not exist without the many faithful volunteers who love Jesus, love the church, and are actively on mission with us to Know Jesus and Make Jesus Known. Today we continue our On Mission blog series by meeting another one of our awesome volunteers who gives generously of their time and talent by serving in various ministries and teams throughout the church.

Today we meet Steve.

 

What do you do? (Outside of serving at COAH)

My background is split between two different industries: Corporate IT and Film/Television. Following a few years working IT jobs, I decided to switch streams, and ended up studying filmmaking in New York. After this I worked in production in some local film and television projects, however these days I work as a freelance writer, and have recently completed a TV script that is being considered for production. I also volunteer as a writing mentor at the Brotherhood of St Lawrence, for asylum seekers who need assistance in telling their own personal stories.

You serve as part of the Production Logistics team that helps setup and pack down all the sound and lighting equipment for our Sunday services. Why is your team critical to the mission of City on a Hill?

The Production Logistics team helps create the physical framework around which the Sunday services are based. Attending a City on a Hill service is both a visual and audio sensory experience, and while God's word is absolutely at the heart of each service, we want to compliment the pastors and worship team by providing the best sound and lighting setup possible, when they deliver God's message to the audience.

What does it look like to serve on your team?

The Production Logistics team assembles at 7am on a Sunday morning, and begins unpacking all of the necessary equipment from storage. Then the team goes about setting up the lighting, sound, and visual displays for both morning services. The setting up also includes liaising with the worship and communications teams, performing sound & light checks, and fetching coffee. Then, once the 10:30am service has ended, the team begins packing down all of the equipment before taking it back to storage.

What do you enjoy most about serving on your team?

I really love the sense of fellowship and teamwork that exists between all team members. There is something special about meeting together and helping out at 7am on a weekend morning, when most of the people you know are sleeping soundly. I also enjoy contributing to the overall production of a Sunday service, knowing that I am serving both my church and my God, even in this small way.

What opportunities currently exist to serve on your team?

Due to the amount of equipment and moving parts, there will always be an opportunity for people to serve in this important area. A larger roster of people helping out would cover absences, holidays, and some other duties that team members have to perform.

 

Their are many opportunities to serve at City on a Hill, and each of these opportunities exist because they are a crucial part of our mission to Know Jesus and Make Jesus Known. If you are not currently serving at City on a Hill, or you know someone who isn’t, now is the time to sign up to serve and be part of the mission. If you’ve got an interest or skills for this team then join Steve on mission by serving as part of the Productions Logistics team!
