Too often, new technology purchases are focused on what the technology can do on it’s own, and not on how it can positively affect what it is you do or how your team will use it. This is especially true when it comes to designing new audio, video, and lighting systems for your church. In this session you’ll hear practical steps and stories from experienced technical directors and systems integrators as we share the 5 keys to making sure your audio, video, and lighting systems equip your team to do great ministry.
