Today was an interesting day. The best part of my job is that I get to work with volunteers. About two weeks ago, I got an email from one of my long time volunteers asking if I would speak at a career day. He is an assistant principal at a middle school and was looking to fill some slots. When a volunteer who has served in the tech ministry for a long time gives you the opportunity to help him, you jump. So I spent the morning speaking to eighth graders about my job as a technical producer and a web developer. Certainly not the way that I had planned my first day off in three weeks.
Each time I think that I have other things to do, God lets me know where I need to be. I was paired up with a graphic designer and we spoke to six different groups for about 25 minutes each. Being that my week was crazy, I didn’t have much time to prepare my talk. During the first session, we each gave a short description about our jobs and then asked for questions. The question was asked if there was anyway for them to start learning about graphic design, web development or technical production. What a great opportunity to invite the kids to church and become a part of the tech ministry! That same opportunity presented itself for the remaining five classes. Just where I needed to be.
