  • Backstage Team: The Backstage Team is for those who love to be behind the scenes. This team will serve through setup, teardown, and audio-visual.
  • Variety Team: The Variety Team will play an important role during MDWK Worship and special events through leading all things “upfront.” Students on this team will help run games, interview others on-stage, make announcements, lead large group activities, etc.
