Conversations between Church Eleven32 and Paragon 360™ started in 2012. Design work began in 2013, construction started in mid-2014, and Church Eleven32 opened its new facility in August of 2016. This young, contemporary church seats 600 in a very flexible environment. “When we walked into the space for the first time, there was a wow factor” says Benjamin Thomas, Associate Pastor at Church Eleven32. “The final product just exceeded our expectations.”
Lighting systems feature over 120 fixtures, with the bulk of them being LED units. Additionally, the house lighting system features over 30 LED units throughout the Worship Center. Over 250’ of trussing was used for lighting positions, while control was provided by High End Systems consoles & architectural lighting control stations. The audio systems were driven by Midas digital consoles, JBL speakers, and Sennheiser microphones.
Additional Bose outdoor ground speakers were used around the perimeter of the facility. Video systems were highlighted by three Da-Lite 14’ wide screens driven by three Digital Projection 7,000 lumen DLP projectors. Several 60” and 80” LED flat screens were used for confidence monitors throughout the space. Cameras used include Panasonic manned cameras and Vaddio PTZ cameras. Other equipment included video switching, digital signage systems, and distributed audio throughout the building.
“Paragon 360 has been great at bringing us that multi-sensory experience that we were looking for on Sunday mornings” explained Donna Kent, Operations Director at Church Eleven32. “They seemed to really understand our DNA and the multi-generational appeal we have.” Pastor Thomas added “I think Paragon really understood our vision and our heart throughout this whole process. They helped us create an AVL experience that aids us in connecting with the Lord. It’s certainly not the focal point, but it truly enhances what God is doing in our space.”
