Thomasville First Baptist finds the right touch


S&L Integrated Systems has installed an Avolites Sapphire Touch lighting console at Thomasville First Baptist Church. The systems integrator had been challenged by the church to supply a solution that was simple enough for the inexperienced worship team to use during regular services while meeting the vast technical requirements of the touring acts that often perform in the sanctuary.

‘When the church was renovated a couple of years ago, the lighting and sound systems were updated to accommodate small performances, as well as hosting professional touring acts,’ said Clay Byars of S&L. ‘The new lighting console had to be a proven workhorse and something that included industry-standard features and protocols. There are a wide variety of lighting fixtures that the console controls at the church, including LED ellipsoidals, movers, wash lights, and some conventional lighting fixtures, and the Sapphire manages all of their functions extremely well.’

The Sapphire Touch possesses 45 motorised, programmable faders and dual 15.6-inch touchscreens, providing enough control over the lighting rig for touring acts. In addition, the ability to save scenes and ease of programming allows the non-technical members of the worship team to use it.

‘I’m a musician and the worship leader, not a lighting guy,’ said the church’s worship leader, Jeremiah Spencer. ‘But I’ve been able to quickly learn how to program and run the console. Having used it for a while now, I love the flexibility it offers.’
