Christ Sanctified Holy Church Campground Sanctuary, Perry, GA. This unique ministry conducts worship without a formal choir or preaching. Worship consists of impromptu group singing and testimonials of faith. The room acoustics required a live space with special emphasis on the platform sound's reflective properties. The sound system loudspeakers provide low frequency isolation to the pulpit microphone by using Filtered Array Technology, a technique developed by Jim Brawley for JBL Professional to control the directional characteristics of low frequency arrays.

Roswell United Methodist Church, Roswell, GA.
The church sanctuary underwent a major production technology renovation in September 2003. The ministry produces extensive music and drama events for Easter and July 4th. The Church is also the home concert venue for the Michael O’Neal Singers, a professional concert choral. The need to handle these events as well as traditional and contemporary weekly worship services indicated the need for expanded production capabilities.

Systems included: Loudspeaker systems, Production lighting, Rear screen video projection, TV Cameras and switching, In-ear monitor systems for praise band, and special LARES acoustic enhancement system to provide an electronic acoustical shell for the choir loft.
