UK TEAM BUILDERS

David’s Tent exists because of the 400+ Team Builders who serve diligently on various teams across the site and help steward people into the presence of God. As a member of our team, we invite you to help us host an environment that is excellent, full of fun, changes the lives of everyone that comes and leaves a smile on Jesus’ face. Shifts are typically 4-6 hours on event days. Team Builder benefits include:

  • Special Discounted Ticket Price (£75)
  • One free meal in our catering tent on days you serve (Thu-Sun)
  • Free team t-shirt
  • Free tea and coffee throughout the event
  • Access to special Team Campsite (new for 2020!)

WHAT IS A TEAM BUILDER?

As a Team Builder you will play a unique part in our incredible family of volunteers, helping to build the culture of David's Tent and create a space where Jesus is glorified and delegates can worship Him unhindered.

The Team Builder family is incredibly diverse - people from all over the world, representing many different denominations and church streams, come together to serve at David's Tent. Our minimum age is 16 and we have no upper limit!

Team Builders are assigned to a Team in one of seven different areas. On the application form, you can to tell us about your skills and experience and give us your top three choices.

Every day of the event begins with a short morning Team Meeting at 8:15am. You will be asked to do one shift each day, typically between 4 and 6 hours long. We try to spread your shifts over different times each day, so no one is serving every evening, for example.

TEAM CHOICES
Teams at David's Tent are grouped according to different skills required. WHEN YOU APPLY YOU CAN CHOOSE THREE OPTIONS. (Please note that your choice is for a group of teams, and not a specific team within that group). We can't guarantee your choice - the earlier you apply the better chance you have of getting on your team of choice! WE PRAY OVER EVERY APPLICATION TO DISCERN WHAT TEAM WOULD BE THE BEST FOR YOU TO SERVE ON

    This team arrives early (by 11:00 on Wednesday) and leaves late (17:00 on Monday).

You'll be free to enjoy the event for most of Friday and all of Saturday and Sunday.

  • SITE STEWARDS

    Site stewards play an important role in welcoming people into the various tents and venues, and keeping the whole site safe.

    • Big Top

WHY SHOULD I SIGN UP?

Being a Team Builder is great fun!! It's an amazing way to make new friends, be part of the DT family and get involved behind the scenes in hosting the event. Plus you get a discounted ticket, free team t-shirt, a free meal each day, and free tea and coffee throughout the event. Because the worship is 24/7 you still have loads of time to worship in the Big Top and hang out with your friends, alongside serving on team.

Frequently asked questions
See our Knowledge Base HERE for more general info on everything about this year's event

  • HOW LONG ARE SHIFTS? WILL I STILL HAVE TIME TO WORSHIP IN THE TENT?
    A typical shift is 4-6 hours so there is plenty of time to worship as well alongside serving on team. We try to make sure we spread your shifts over different times each day during the event, between about 7am and 11pm, depending on your team. We will only put you on an overnight shift if you indicate you are happy for this.
    If you are coming with children or dependents you can let us know about this on your application and we will take this into account when arranging your shift times.
    If you are serving at DT with your spouse or a friend, you can let us know about this and we will do our best to match up your shift times, although we can't promise! (We also can't arrange your shifts around your favourite worship leader's sets!)
  • DO TEAM BUILDERS NEED TO ARRIVE EARLY?

    Yes - all Team Builders need to arrive on site on Thursday 27th August between 11:00 - 13:00 and leave site no earlier than 15:00 on Monday 31st August. We expect TBs to attend all their shifts on time and attend the  daily meeting for all Team Builders (08:15).

    If you can't arrive by Thursday lunch time and stay until 3pm on Monday, then we are sorry but we won't be able to accept your application to be a Team Builder. Please consider coming as a delegate instead.

    If you want to apply for the Set Up and Tear Down team, we will need you to arrive by 11am on Wednesday 26th August and stay until 5pm on Monday 31st.

  • DO YOU PROVIDE accommodation FOR TEAM BUILDERS?

    David's Tent does not provide accommodation for Team Builders. It is every Team Builder's responsibility to bring their own tent (or arrange to share with friends), book off-site accommodation, or book a glamping tent (insert link). If you are coming on your own and would like to share a glamping tent with others (you just pay for your own spot), you can email [email protected] for more information.

  • What's the address?

    Address: Wiston Park, Steyning, BN44 3DZ
