Team Demographics

Steve asked me in a comment on the last post about a recent work day,
"I was wondering, what are your demographics of your team? What are the avg. ages, % single & married, men/women, etc."
Well, here are some rough demographics...
  • About 100 people on the various teams
  • 25% Women, 75% Men
  • 35% High Schoolers, 65% Adults
  • 60% Single (including the high schoolers), 40% Married
  • 45% are serving as a family or with someone else in their family
I think the stats that excite me the most are the number of high schoolers serving and the number of people serving as a family. That tells me that these teams are both enjoyable and good for growth in character. The future looks good, thank to the Lord's faithfulness!

Here's what we have at CrossWay in Charlotte:

14 people
14% Women, 86% Men
29% High Schoolers, 71% Adults
50% Single, 50% Married

We also have two folks who handle the projection of lyrics, message reference text, and special video presentations, and a few regular younger helpers who aren't official team members.

It's interesting, but the team is also about 50% over 40 & 50% mid-20s & under.

Wow that's a massive team.
I'm interested in how you coordinate event needs and schedules.
Do you meet regularly with team leaders?
What do YOU do on a Sunday morning?

Thanks for sharing your experiences

Hi, Roger.

I'll try to touch on those questions in future posts. But as you can see, I post infrequently these days. Thanks for your patience.
