Christ Chapel Looks Up to L-ACOUSTICS

Electro Acoustics specifies and installs four-array KARAi/SB18i rig for main sanctuary

Christ Chapel Bible Church knows sound. The 30-year-old church in Ft. Worth has steadily expanded since it was founded in 1984, adding new buildings to its evolving main campus and recently opening a satellite location, and all of the main venues have state-of-the-art sound systems from a number of iconic brands.

Like many contemporary houses of worship, Christ Chapel Bible Church recognizes that delivering a powerful message requires a sound system that can offer utter clarity for the spoken word and clear, clean sound for a strong music program. In order to achieve all this and stay at the forefront of sound system technology for its main sanctuary, Christ Chapel Bible Church chose to purchase and install an L-ACOUSTICS KARAi line source array system – the version of KARA specifically tailored for the fixed install market.

Educational Training at Church Media U

Church Media UChurch Media U is a one-day seminar for HoW media volunteers and pro’s that tours the country helping to equip churches to understand and use their visual media technology better.

Changes in projection technology, lighting and content development have created a huge opportunity that the HoW have only just begun to tap. It is more affordable than ever to literally transform a room into a truly sacred-feeling place as we lift eyes, voices and hearts in worship to God. It is also easier than ever to create a lot of visual noise that distracts from the purpose of ministry.
Church Media U wants to help you embrace the one and avoid the other.

The two questions they hear most are these: What equipment hardware and software does our church need now? And/or: Now that we’ve got all of this awesome equipment, what in the world should we do with it?

A Dozen Tips to Better Church Sound & Team Work

by Hector La Torre
RhemaChoose Wisely: Ready to upgrade or purchase a new sound system? Make sure always to check credentials when choosing sound contractor-installers or equipment dealers. Are they really experienced audio professionals or inexperienced A-V salespeople in sheep’s clothing? How much professional experience do they have? Does your equipment dealer offer service and assistance or just a lower price? Choose a qualified local sound contractor whenever possible. Ask for contact information of other church clients, and make sure you attend other churches where the contractor has installed systems. It’s all about due diligence and good financial stewardship.
