Our home state of Tennessee has more megachurches (that is, churches with a weekly attendance of 2,000-plus) per capita than any other state. Often called the “Buckle of the Bible Belt,” Tennessee is home to 67 megachurches, behind only California, Texas, Georgia, and Florida. Ed Stetzer, Executive Director of LifeWay Research, predicts this number will double over the next 10 years.
Just how big is 2,000 people? The average church size in America, for comparison, is 186. Megachurches represent less than half of 1 percent of all churches in this country, but account for over 10% of all U.S. church-goers.
A church of this size — heck, any building of this size — requires a tremendous amount of upkeep and overhead costs: air conditioning, electrical, water, etc. But in order to effectively carry out the mission of a church, first and foremost, the parishioners need to hear and see what’s going on. A/V systems are therefore tremendously important tools in communicating and engaging with the audience.
Some churches are pressured into buying the shiniest, most expensive A/V equipment, whether or not they actually need it. At SCAV, we’ll tailor a solution around both your practical needs and budget. Like all of our services, we’ll build something that works for you — nothing more, nothing less.
SCAV designs AV solutions for houses of worship all over the country. From microphones and speakers to projectors and sound walls, we’ll ensure that even those Johnny-come-latelys in the back pews will witness the service with absolute clarity. Whether you work for a brand new megachurch or an old, smaller parish, find out how SCAV can help improve the quality of your services. Give us a call or visit one of our locations today!
