Describe a group that you would like to lead, including the type of group, it’s size, inclusion criteria, and whether or not it is open or closed:
I would love to form and lead of group of volunteers in implementing a task group to coordinate a children’s outreach ministry celebration. The group in its core should have at least 8 team leaders (not including the leader): event coordinator (leader), budget/finance director, volunteer coordinator, marketing director, talent recruiter (chilfern’ entertainmen), city ordanices liaison, food coordinato, security coordinator, and should have at least a minimal knowledge of working with event organizing and knowing the dedication it demands, which is essentrial to its success.
Identify the Group’s Purpose:
As with any implementaction of a task group it’s sole purpose is to give the participants an opportunity to to share ideas and exchange information (Jacobs, Shimmel, et. el, 2016) grow and develop in each area you may not be familiar with. The purpose or particular event we are developing is an outreach (ministry) to children, between the ages of 2-12 years…as Jesus said in Matthew 19:14″suffer little children and forbid them not to come unto me; for such is the kingdom of God” (KJV).
What topics will be covered?
Each team leader will share with the group his/her responsibilities in the position or task he/she is assigned. The catering coordinator will share the different avenues and suggestions as to a menu of possible foods for the children, who and where are the best deals for this event, and the volunteer coordinator would inform us as to how many workers (volunteers) would they recruit as to the expected number of attendees. Since the church is located in an inner city neighborhood where most households are below poverty level, we could discuss an approximate 1 1/2 mile radius around the church for attendees, what date and what time. Each team leader has their task to form.
How often will the group meet?
In coordinating an event it is essential the group start meeting at least 3 months in advance, the second month every other week, and the third month at least once a week. Each session should last at least 1-1 1/2 hours. Then the event.
