Victory World Outreach has been ministering in Colorado Springs and around the world for 40 years. A unique ministry with churches in the US and in 10 different countries, Victory World Outreach decided to modernize their AVL set-up and chose integrator and Elation Professional dealer Second Opinion Audio (SOA) for the audio, lighting and video upgrade.
With the knowledge that AV and dynamic lighting systems can positively impact the overall worship experience, the church chose a flexible Elation lighting system to raise its profile and help grow its ministry. Paul Jones, lead pastor at Victory World Outreach said, “Part of our decision behind doing a complete upgrade to the main auditorium was our desire to reach younger families,” Pastor Jones says. “Bob Langlois and Daryl Porter from SOA put together an AVL package and we loved what they came up with.”
SOA specified, designed and installed a state-of-the-art, all-LED Elation lighting system made up of Artiste DaVinci™ moving heads, DTW Par 300™ variable white Par lights, WW Profile HP™ warm-white ellipsoidal spots, SixPar 300™ LED Par lights with barndoors, and SixBar 1000 IP™ LED battens. Elation’s versatile and popular Colour Pendant™ downlight, capable of fully blended projections of color or variable shades of white light, is used for house lighting, allowing the church to complement what is happening on stage whether it’s a church service, musical performance or special event. The entire lighting system is under the control of a compact Obsidian Control Systems NX2™ console. A new 13′ x 25′ LED center screen, as well as side screens, were also added along with a top-grade audio system.
The new AVL system debuted with a grand opening celebration of the main auditorium in September 2019. Used in weekly mass celebrations and for on stage performances, it has made an immediate impact. Pastor Jones concludes, “We doubled our services in the smaller room to accommodate the crowds and then went to double servicevs on Sundays when we moved back into the new, larger auditorium. We immediately began to see more young families come in and there is an anticipation for our services. Thank you Elation for helping us communicate this great message of hope in Jesus Christ!”
