How Loud is Too Loud? - Participant Instructions

Piles of thanks to all of you who responded to my request for an extended discussion on volume levels in church. We have some great folks coming together to talk, study, and write. At this point, the count is 11 of us, which is probably about all we can manage, but if you really want to be a part of the discussion, please let me know by commenting on this post.

Now, for all participants, I need you to take care of a little administrivia.

First, I'd love to know a little bit about you ahead of time. Please send me an email at dwilcox[at]covlife[dot]org with the following info:
  • Your full name
  • Your church
  • Your role in your church's sound
  • Your blog address, if you have one
  • Pick your top two preferences for the weekly discussion time: Mondays@2:00p; Wednesdays@8:00p; Fridays@1:00p; Saturdays@10:00a; Saturdays@1:00p (all times EST).
We'll be using tokbox for our video chat, so sign on up. Once you sign up, select "Find Friends" in the upper right, then "Search the Tokbox Directory" and enter David Wilcox. Then select "Add as Friend" so that we can easily connect with each other. You can video chat with me any time if you have questions about tokbox, want to test your connection, or just want to talk.

I'll be trying to use undistract to keep everyone aware of the chat links, etc. However, if you are a twitter user, you can follow me to get up-to-the-minute info on the video chat.

I can't wait for this dialogue to begin. I believe that God is going to use this to clarify our thoughts and convictions about volume levels in our churches.

Our worship pastor,Josh Hughes, told me about the, "...Too Loud", forum and I was looking forward to possibly participing. Unfortunately, I just don't have the time to commit to fully participant and I am probably too late in responding anyway.
I am, however, looking forward to seeing any posts or other outcomes of the discussion and hope you share them frequently.
Thanks so much for hosting such a worthwhile event.
