Located a short distance southeast of Baton Rouge, Word of Life Christian Center is dedicated to changing people’s lives with the Word of God and equipping them to evangelize the word. Guided by Pastor Leroy Thompson, the church recently upgraded several of its facilities, including a new sound reinforcement system that included selected WorxAudio® and ULT series loudspeakers, a StudioLive® Series III digital console, EarMix® 16M AVB networked monitor mixers, a SW5E 5-port AVB switch and more—all drawn from the catalogs of PreSonus® Audio Electronics, Inc. (www.presonus.com) of Baton Rouge, LA.

Word of Life Christian Center’s new SR system was coordinated through Guitar Center Professional of Baton Rouge with I Am Music, LLC (also of Baton Rouge) handling the actual installation. Jason Lindgren, GC Pro’s Account Manager and Amos Singleton, President of the AV integration firm I Am Music, LLC, spent considerable time consulting with church management to ascertain their requirements for the new loudspeaker system. Ultimately, the decision was made to deploy a combination of PreSonus WorxAudio XL1i-P line arrays, V5 line arrays, X1M line arrays, and TL218SS sub bass enclosures. Completing the package, PreSonus ULT10 loudspeakers were also utilized. Both Lindgren and Singleton discussed the project.

Ruptured pipes irreparably flooded the 1,100-seat sanctuary at a cost of over a million dollars in damage. “Luckily nobody was hurt,” says a thankful Lee Wiggins, head pastor at the church.

The renovation was major, and it changed the physical design of the space. Improvements were made at all levels, which rendered the budget to complete important final details relatively low. “Money was an issue but we all felt we still needed to offer our congregation the best possible worship experience, especially the level of quality of the audio production that delivers our sermons,” points out Pastor Lee. So, who got the call? “Clair Brothers, of course,” he says with a smile. “And it was the right decision.”
