Have you ever had a need for audio in an area of your church, but have no solutions on how to get it there? Do your patrons complain that the current audio system is unintelligible or too quiet? How have you maximized the experience of your congregants who do not speak the language of the sermon? Our worship houses are growing larger and becoming more complex. Many have audio needs in preexisting buildings where wiring cannot be run. Here are some great ideas about how to use wireless FM audio to meet your congregation’s needs.
- Low installation and maintenance costs
- Excellent sound quality
- Wide broadcast area (no line of sight issues)
- Will work indoors and out
- Allow for multiple channels to be used simultaneously and can be used in fixed and portable applications
- As many receivers as needed
As the communities become more culturally diverse, so does the need for simultaneous language interpretation in houses of worship. This saves time by integrating the church services and the congregation in cases in which they have been previously separated.
One example is Shadow Mountain Community Church in El Cajon, CA. The church has a congregation of 6,000 and used to have three separate services. Now interpreters provide real-time simultaneous language interpretation in Arabic, Spanish and other languages, with one channel dedicated to assistive listening. Worship services are now more fully integrated, as is their church, which is deeply satisfying to them all.
