New Hope QR Code Now Available
You may (or may not) have noticed we have displayed a QR code on the big screen in the sanctuary the past two weeks. Pretty soon you will see this QR code on a card in the back of pews and in the church gallery. This code will give you access to the church bulletin, financial numbers, website, and app. All you need to do is open the camera on your phone and hold it over the code. An option to open New Hope’s information should display in a new window.
If you are trying to use the QR code on the big screen in the sanctuary you may need to zoom in your camera just a little for the code to be picked up.
Livestream Audio Issues Are Being Corrected
A month ago we began having issues with the sanctuary sound board. When we built the Livestream Studio at New Hope the one piece of equipment we did not upgrade was the main sound console of the sanctuary. All sound is run through the sanctuary console. It controls what you hear in the sanctuary and also runs a signal to the Livestream Studio for the sound to be mixed for the online audience. Simply put, we have been operating our current console at 100% capacity for over a year now. The demand we place on it, combined with its age, have caused glitches and other issues.
A new and improved sound console was purchased a month ago and was delivered over the weekend. This new console is fully capable of handling our in-house and online needs. If all goes according to plan we should have the Livestream sound issues cleared up before the end of the month.
New Part-Time Administrative/Facilities Coordinator
The elders of New Hope have hired a new part-time Administrative/Facilities Director to assist me (Pastor Josh) in the day to day operations of the church. Karyn Perry and her family are moving to Williamson County and will be joining the church staff in mid to late September. Karyn currently works in the same administrative position at her church in California. She and her husband, Marcus, have two toddler boys, Gideon (4) and Asher (2).
She will be managing New Hope’s contracts with outside vendors and overseeing the day-to-day operations of New Hope’s facility and congregation. This will involve oversight of the church’s maintenance, calendar, membership directory, and more. In addition, she will work alongside me to manage my work calendar, appointment schedule, email and phone calls.
