Champion Forest Baptist Church’s steady expansion over many decades has recently accelerated, inspiring the launch of satellite locations around its central Houston, Texas location. CFBC’s services are decidedly contemporary, with an energetic praise and worship band that’s unleashed at inspiring volumes and supported by full production video and theatrical lighting. Instead of receiving a simulcast from the central campus, each CFBC satellite has its own live pastor. The pastors at the different campuses work together to deliver a common message on a given Sunday. Based on their timely and professional work in the past, integration firm, Clair Solutions, installed the AVL systems at CFBC’s newest, 800-seat, satellite location as well as the student building in North Klein, Texas.
“We put in a new line array system manufactured by our sister company, Clair Brothers, along with a new DiGiCo console at CFBC’s main location many years ago,” explained Mike Mason, regional vice president at Clair Solutions’ Dallas office. “The Texas-based AVL consultants at Idibri designed that system, and we’ve worked with Idibri on numerous other successful projects in the Texas region and around the country. The folks at Champion Forest were really pleased with how that job came together, got exactly what they needed at a fair price, and it has continued to serve them well. They launched their North Klein location a few years ago by initially renting space in a school. When it grew to a size that justified its own building, CFBC again hired Idibri to design an awesome AVL system and Clair Solutions to make it a cost-effective reality.”
