ADJ transforms Radiant Church’s children’s ministry


With five locations spread across Tampa Bay in Florida, Radiant Church has updated the AVL system in its dedicated space for elementary school children aged 9–11 years. The HOW has continually invested in AV technology to keep its worship vibrant and engaging for those gathering in person or online, and its latest project was to overhaul the space used for children’s ministry at the church’s flagship South Tampa campus. Atmospheric Productions supplied the new audio, video and lighting system.

“The technical setup in this room was previously very basic, so we really started from scratch, although we did use a few ADJ Mega 64 Profile Plus LED PARs that were already there,” said Andre T Miller, co-owner of Atmospheric Productions. The first new fixture Miller settled on was ADJ’s Focus Beam LED. He positioned two on the stage itself to shoot beams upwards and another two on the ceiling in the centre of the room. “I didn’t want all the lighting to be onstage; I wanted to have some beams out in the room, over the kids’ heads,” stated Miller. “I think this helps them to feel more involved with the worship and everything that is happening.”

The second fixture Miller chose was the Focus Spot 4Z, placing four on an upstage bar with the existing Mega 64 Profile Plus units. The lighting package onstage is completed by six UB 12H linear LED wash fixtures. Four are lined along the back of the stage, with a further two fixtures positioned at either side of the stage pointing inwards.

“The UB 12H bars really serve two purposes,” explained Miller. “The room is only around 3.3m tall, so those four bars at the back really fill up the stage with colour. Then the two on the side provide colour fill to give depth to the lighting of the pastors and musicians onstage. Not only do they create nice primary colour washes but the UV element of the HEX LEDs allow us to create some fun moments as well.”

The final product is the MOD STQ LED wash fixture. “We considered various different options for both front and house lighting but, in the end, decided on the MOD STQ because of its flexible lens system,” added Miller. “We used the 20° option for a tighter-focused front light, with three fixtures positioned in the centre of the room usually set to white and a further pair of fixtures positioned further out to allow their use as colour fill. We then used the 60° option for fixtures that serve as house lights, which allows them to fill the whole room evenly. Being able to do multiple functions with the same fixture gives maximum flexibility to the church for the future.”

To complete the system, Atmospheric Productions supplied a Magma Prime hazer from ADJ’s sister company, Magmatic. Miller programmed a variety of different looks and effects that can be selected by the volunteer lighting techs who run the equipment on a weekly basis.

“The senior kids’ pastor was very excited when he first saw the new setup,” confirmed Miller. “The ministry likes to keep things fresh and exciting for the students by having different themes throughout the year, so they decorate the space accordingly. This new lighting rig makes that super easy; they can completely change not only the stage lighting but the house lights too, to a colour scheme that matches the current theme.”
