Crosspoint Community Church
This growing congregation has been a
"portable church" for the last seven years. This facility just
south of town is their
first permanent home. It was a heavy equipment sales and maintenance
facility. The now 350 seat worship center is also equipped with classrooms,
offices, kitchen and nurseries.
AR&D from Peoria, IL were the architects. PJ
Hoerr of Normal IL served as the construction company. Jordan Audio
Consultants of Joplin, MO completed the necessary engineering and wrote the
AV specifications. Fulkerson Audio Inc. was the winning AV contractor.
They did an excellent job. Everything worked great from the first day!
A large "fortress of technology"
was built by members of the church to serve as the AVL control booth. It
houses the audio console and support equipment, video control
equipment, and stage lighting control at the rear of the seating areas.
The main audio system includes an array of
Electro Voice two way speakers and a pair of under stage Concert Systems LLC
sub woofers (dual 12".) A pair of monitor systems are available for
special events. The Sunday and Wednesday worship band utilize six channels
of IEM (in-ear-montiors) with wireless receivers.
Several components from the congregation's
portable system were reassigned in the new permanent system including some
amplifiers, floor monitors, equalizers and microphones. Other parts
were assigned to a small system in the junior church area.

and straight forward. A single 5500 lumen, 1000:1 contrast ratio LCD
projector was installed to fill a 16:9 ratio electric projection screen.
Available video sources include computer and and Blueray/DVD deck.
Inputs for other sources are also available for special events. The
audio and video signals also route into the junior church area for use as an
