Lighthouse World Outreach Center welcomes all with Digital Projection


Georgia’s Lighthouse World Outreach Center has updated its technology to better convey its messages of hope and praise, selecting Digital Projection as a solution via AV specialists, Strata. Having served the community for nearly 30 years, its congregation was growing, and its displays were dim and outdated, with the central chapel resembling a theatrical auditorium as opposed to a traditional church.

The unique, angled front sanctuary seats 1,000. Pastor Raymond Hardy explained: “We’re fortunate to have a very unique congregation with people from all walks of life. This area has seen a lot of cultural and racial divisiveness, so Lighthouse began as a means to reconcile that separation. We sought out to build a community first more so than simply build a church.”

During the initial site visit, Strata quickly identified the potential that could be achieved with a revamped lighting and video solution. Co-owner David Roche described the project: “When we first saw the space, we realised the church could have a much more dramatic impact with a reconfiguration of the projections screens powered by much brighter projectors.”

Integrating two Draper 14-inch x 8-inch projection screens, the team increased the size of the side displays and moved them closer to the centre of the sanctuary’s upstage wall. When it came time to select the projectors themselves, Roche said: “Digital Projection was the perfect fit for the church’s budget and space and offered great lighting and visual capabilities.”

When the video upgrade was finished, the difference was said to be immediately apparent to both the worship team and its guests. As the congregation arrives, the two E-Vision 9000 WU projectors showcase church announcements, filled with vibrant colours and inspirational messages, inviting all who enter. Once service starts, Pastor Raymond Hardy and the choir are supported by captivating visuals on the flanking screens. Pastor Hardy describes the experience: “I like to preach illustrated sermons, so we use a lot of inspirational graphics, video, and maps, along with our song lyrics and mission and community updates. Projection has become a big part of our services and the DP units have allowed us to give people a truly engaging worship experience.”
