Archives For volunteer staff

Our Guest Services Director, at Two Cities Church, has had the highest turn-over since we began this venture and it’s good. First it was Chris Loach. Chris knew the model of ministry and what a Guest Services team should look like within that. The problem with Chris Loach is that he’s just too talented and capable of doing too many things. We quickly moved him into other roles after he got the team set up. Then we asked Chris Hansen to take over the spot. Chris Hansen had spent some time volunteering on the Guest Services team at The Village Church in Dallas, TX. He excitedly and willingly took on the role. He brought a different perspective and was able to help us create a better, more welcoming, set up in our lobby. Chris Hansen just moved back to Texas for a new job. We already miss Chris H. and his wife, Lisa. As various volunteer staff helped me brainstorm on who we could challenge to this position, one name kept surfacing… I give you Brian Weber. brian and michelle 1 brian costume

I asked Brian to share a little about himself by filling out a brief survey. Here’s what he said:
  • What’s your full name and age?

    Brian Kenneth Weber, 34 (35 on Halloween!)

  • What’s your full-time job?

    Director of Customer Solutions – Decade Software; I leave a team that develops custom solutions for automating data management within regulatory agencies.

  • Tell us a little about your family.

    Wife of almost one year, Michelle. She is the glue in our family and provides a calming effect to all of us! We have a son, Braden, 7-years-old who is in love with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and showing his sister hot to do everything. Camryn, 4.5-years-old, is in love with her dolls making her older brother THINK he is showing her how to do things. She is wise neon dyer years. Both love reading in the Bible and asking great questions bout God. Finally, Michelle and I are expecting a baby boy due in October. We couldn’t be more blessed.

  • What’s your favorite things about Two Cities Church?

    Two Cities is a church for any person, God-seeking, God-loving, God-questioning. There isn’t any judgement at Two Cities, just come hang out and we can learn from each other.

  • Why did you accept the invitation to be on our volunteer staff team?

    I accepted the invitation to be the Director of Guest Services because I believe in the direction of Two Cities and I can’t wait to contribute to its growth.

  • What are your hopes and dreams for the future of Two Cities?

    I want Two Cities to fulfill God’s plan for our church. The size, revenue, or funding is not as important as impacting people’s lives as we can provide an outlet to build a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. I can’t wait to experience the ride!

We are excited to have Brian on the volunteer staff team and can’t wait to see what he brings to the Guest Services Director position. You can watch Brian and Michelle’s #WeAreTwoCities video here. You can read about our Volunteer Staff team here.

Before we began the journey of church-planting, Paul Haugen and I met with Steve Davidson, Co-Lead Pastor of Clovis Hills Community Church. I wanted to let him know that we appreciate the work he and Clovis Hills has done in our community and in many ways we “stand on the shoulders” of him and several other pastors in town who have paved the way for church-planting in our two cities. While picking his brain on the experience he had in church planting he told me to get as many qualified volunteer staff as possible to take on certain tasks and departments.

In that spirit and following my previous post Who is our Customer, I thought it would be fitting to introduce our volunteer staff at Two Cities Church. So here’s a snapshot of our volunteer staff positions. These are people who have decided they want to be a part of this to the point where they will put in extra time and use the talents they have to further the mission of leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. There are four main departments in terms of staff structure at Two Cities. Those are: Service Programming, Family Ministry, Group Life, and Ministry Services. Many of use wear multiple hats and in some cases, in multiple departments. Over the long haul that won’t work, but we will always be working to replace ourselves. In no particular order…

I imagine that in the coming months we will discover amongst our team a great Group Life Director, team captains for many strategic service teams and lots of fantastic volunteers! The people listed above are just the volunteer STAFF, not all of the volunteers, but the ones specific asked to fill a role that in the future, may be full-time, part-time or contract work. Every one of these people has filled these rolls before at different churches,
