Mobile Church Children’s Ministry Equipment
For a portable children’s ministry, you will want to put together a children’s ministry cart. What I mean by that is that you will want to take an AV cart and convert it into a portable children’s ministry center. That way your children’s workers will be able just to roll everything they need to the room they hold the children’s ministry in.
You should probably include things like….
- A flat-screen TV
- A video player or laptop computer.
- A children’s church paging system to notify parents in the sanctuary if they are needed.
- Plastic storage containers for all the supplies.
- Sunday school curriculum or Children’s Church material.
- An AV Cart
Ask your Sunday School teachers or Children’s Church workers what they will need to serve their kids.
Mobile Welcome Center For Church
The same is true for a portable welcome center. You can use an AV cart like this one that folds out into a table top and has a place for a computer keyboard.
If you want it to look a little less spartan, then you can always put a cloth skirt around the front of it.
You will want to equip it with …..
- Brochure holders and brochures
- Visitor gift bags
- Other supplies like pens, name tags, etc.
- Moreover, of course, the cart I suggested above.
You may also want to equip it with a laptop computer so you can track attendance or gather new visitor information for follow up contact.
Putting Your Mobile Church All Together
After you have gathered all your supplies for your mobile church, make sure that everything can be packed up and placed in some protective container if possible.Although your mobile church will probably not look like the one in this picture, you still need to take time to put it all together.
Use plastic containers, hard shell instrument cases, and hard shell cases for your audiovisual equipment. Go so far as to color code or number the containers and mark each piece of equipment with colored tape corresponding to the case or container they go in.
You want your mobile church to be able to be boxed up and ready to be put in a trailer or pick up. Once again, this will save you time and heartache in the future.
Well, there you have it. I hope that my first-hand experience in portable mobile churches has helped you get your mind around how you can put together a mobile church yourself. I think you will find that if you follow my advice, you will have saved yourself thousands of dollars in equipment and thousands of staff hours in setting up and tearing down your mobile church.
