‘Departments’ define how your volunteers are grouped. In your music team, for example, you might have smaller groups that work together – like the band, the singers, the tech team, and the backstage crew. Each of these smaller groups should be a sub-department. Volunteers are the positions inside your sub-departments. Your band might include keyboard, guitar, bass, drums, and strings.
Setting up Services
‘Service Types’ function as a template for the different services held within your church. Your Sunday-morning service, for example, is probably at the same time every week. Its structure and volunteer list is probably similar too. Setting up a service type will save you time every week by pre-filling some of those details.
We recommend setting up a service type for any regular event your church runs. For example, if your Youth Group meets every Friday night, set up a service type with a typical run sheet and the necessary volunteer positions.
