Over the last few years, we’ve realized how common it is for one church leader to be responsible for everything “technical.” This includes tech for worship services, website, social media, graphics and more! Every week, I’ll be posting practical tools and educational resources on communications, media, and technology. Let me know how these resources are able to help you, and please share your suggestions, questions, or feedback!

Check out this article that explains different frequencies and how they affect each instrument and vocal in your worship mix!
