Audio specialist Sennheiser announced that it has launched Praise Pack: a special new microphone bundle focused on the small to midsize house of worship (HOW) market.
The new bundle, which consists of four e 835 dynamic vocal microphones along with four pouches and mic stand clips, come snugly packaged in a specially embroidered, road ready Gator case.
The new bundle, priced at just $349 (a savings of more than $100 if each mic was purchased separately), represents a great opportunity for churches to realize clear audio reproduction with four of Sennheiser’s best selling microphones. Each e835 microphone comes with a 10-year warranty and fits neatly into the black Gator case, which has ‘Sennheiser Praise Team’ embroidered on its exterior.
A turn of the century church gets an Allen & Heath audio upgrade
“We are a very energetic and dynamic congregation, there is a lot going on in our Church on Sundays, and every day of the week” says Stephen Wolgamott, Worship Pastor of The First Baptist Church of Leesburg, Florida. Since the church was founded in the 1880’s the congregation and its activities have steadily grown to a population of over 1200 individuals and families. “Our three Sunday services include a twelve piece orchestra, a seventy person choir and six individual praise vocalists. Oh, yeah, and a five to six person contemporary band” says Wolgamott. Energetic and dynamic would seem an understatement.
This past year the Church completed a thorough renovation of its main sanctuary, which now includes an Allen & Heath ILive T112 console for front of house and an Allen & Heath GLD 80 mixing board for the adjacent broadcast/audio recording center. As with many older buildings, there were untraceable noise feeds happening in the audio chain. Challenges not easily overcome with older, analog consoles.

About 15 years ago I was a Worship and Arts Director at a fast growing church in Seattle. It was the very first church I’d ever led worship at, and I was the “director.” The average attender was maybe 24 years of age. The body mostly consisted of new believers, or believers who hadn’t attended a worship gathering for a number of years prior to discovering this new service. The band performed rock and pop music during the worship portion of the service, but without the typical repetitive choruses that are common to many contemporary services around the US – mostly because we weren’t familiar with many contemporary songs, and the few we did know didn’t seem to fit what we were doing. Instead, we wrote new songs and rearranged many old hymns.
The 600-seat River Oaks Community Church, in Goshen, Indiana, holds contemporary worship services, and on any given Sunday, serves 1,200 of its congregation. With a rotating pool of 25 musicians, a standard worship service consists of 5-10 members on stage. The church recently retired its aged analog console and upgraded to a new Yamaha CL5 digital audio console and Rio 3224-D and 1608-D input/output boxes, purchased from Mid-America Sound in Greenfield, Indiana.
“We had an analog console for about ten years that outlived its welcome”, states Tim Blaum, Program Director at the church and who installed the CL. “We realized we needed to have additional control and mixing space.”
