Founded by Bishop Patrick M. Schatzline and Lady Deborah Schatzline, with a congregation of just 50 people, today Daystar Family Church in Tuscaloosa, AL, has a congregation of over 1300. Now pastored by Patrick and Deborah’s son Scott and his wife Kristi, it is multi-cultural, multi-generational, non-denominational church with praise and worship that is energetic and passionate. However, this had begun to be hindered by a lighting system that was outdated and costly. For this reason, Nick Campfield of Narrow Road Pro was brought in to advise on a possible solution.

Nick was originally brought in a year ago because of a faulty dimmer. When he spoke to the pastors of the church he found out they were spending a significant amount of money on electricity, which is hardly surprising as they had 80 conventional pars and ellipsoidal fixtures in their roof at 750 watts a piece. Because of the problem with the dimmer, all of these were turned on full, for the whole duration of each service! As Nick continued the dialog with the church’s team he found out about a whole catalogue of other problems, which eventually led to them commissioning Narrow Road Pro to design, supply and install a complete new audio, video and lighting system.
