Worship Arts Ministry – Scheduling

I’m using a service called planningcenteronline.com and it’s actually a really nice service. You can send out requests to people to serve on a given weekend, and they can confirm or decline your request which is nice, and can be a very efficient way to communicate with people and do scheduling.

However, it is in that technology world that many have not ventured into, or are not completely immersed in yet. Some people don’t check their email more than once a week, some don’t have email, some have dial-up, some don’t even have a computer.

I’ve never been fortunate enough to have a tool like this in the past, so I’m faced with a new, but good problem. I’m not sure how to confirm in a way that I can know for sure out in the future that people will be there. With paper schedules, possibly people were less likely to back out because it required a phone call, but with email, it seems like people are more likely to back out at the last minute. I know this will fall in line with expecations, when I start asking things of people, but not it’s kind of a catch-22. I have a tool to help me schedule, but it’s kind of making it more difficult in other ways.
