  2. 2. COVENANT’S VISION It was important to Covenant Presbyterian Church to keep with the aesthetics of a traditional sanctuary. Bringing in modern audio and lighting technology was important, but they did not want the equipment to detract from the worship service.
  3. 3. It is priority for ESB to listen to a client’s concerns and find a suitable option to meet their needs. We designed the speakers and other AVL equipment to visually blend with the beautiful sanctuary. The custom audio system allows for modern AVL equipment to integrate well with the style of Covenant Presbyterian Church. E S B R E S P O N D S

  9. 9. Before I arrived, we only needed the occasional volunteer to help with a few microphones at the pulpit and the piano. We wanted to add musical instruments on stage, soloists and better sound quality. Help was needed as the project grew, such as a Tech Director on staff and ESB to add professional insight to our goals. They came in and made the sound in the sanctuary come to life. Our congregation noticed right away with excitement! ESB made sure the “dead spots” in the sanctuary could now be heard clearly. Many people wondered where the speakers were installed because they could not see them! ESB also designed a new line for signal flow under the stage, so all equipment could be utilized to its maximum potential. The initial project was basically a down-payment for what our church envisions in the future, so scalability was kept in mind with the design. Rick Barnes, Director of Musical Arts
