That's what staff members from every campus of Houston's First and our Faith Centers will focus on when they come together on February 8 and 9 for Team First — their annual professional and team development event. This year's gathering, however, has gone through some changes as leaders took steps to adapt to the challenges of COVID-19.
The event was originally slated for January but church leaders opted to postpone it to February, allowing time to pivot and adjust the format. Rather than meeting in person as in recent years — at the Cypress Campus in 2019 and the Downtown Campus in 2020 — everyone will remain at their campuses and connect virtually via webinars and Zoom. Staff will gather with their work teams or campus teams in 14 different rooms at campuses across the city.
Main Sessions will be webcast live from the Worship Center at The Loop Campus including messages from Pastor Gregg and worship through music. During the Breakout sessions, employees will get on their own devices and join the sessions of their choosing via Zoom calls (see list below). To ensure the day goes smoothly, each team room has a designated Team Captain who will coordinate room set-ups, lunch distribution, and other tasks along the way.
