Dr. Ronnie Floyd is the Senior Pastor of the First Baptist Church of Springdale in Springdale, Arkansas. Under his leadership the church membership has grown to over 20,000. Thousands of people in Northwest Arkansas and across the world have been reached for Christ through missions, and in 2001, the church expanded to include a second campus in Rogers, Arkansas, The Church at Pinnacle Hills. With the addition of multiple sites, the church has become One Church in Many Locations. Recently, in order to strengthen their identity, the First Baptist Church of Springdale and The Church at Pinnacle Hills became Cross Church, with a third campus in Fayetteville that opened in January of 2011.
Paragon 360 has been working with Crosschurch since 2001 including multiple projects at the Springdale campus, the ground up construction of the Pinnacle Hills campus and now the latest store front satellite church in Fayetteville.
Systems designed and provided by Paragon 360 for Cross Church Fayetteville start up included an EV speaker system which included delay units and floor level subwoofers and EV stereo power amplifiers. The HD video system incuded Sony Cameras, Ross Switching, and Christie Projection. The church also has the ability to stream video services both to and from other Cross Church campuses and to the internet. The lighting system included conventional units and LED moving light units in addition to ETC dimming and Jands Vista control. Dimmed house-lighting was provided for the main sanctuary in addition to the lobby and children’s areas.
Multiple black curtain units were rigged along the strip mall style glass walls which provided acoustic solutions but also blocked light allowing for a controlled environment for video recording. The curtain was designed so that sections could be left open for certain events.
Paragon 360 also provided a thrust stage section and the main stage set that incorporated our signature Modular Cubes and I-Walls. These self illuminated wall units allow the stage background to be changed at anytime. Also included were screen surrounds that improve the look and feel of the video screens. The project was on a very tight budget and Paragon 360 was able to deliver on time and within budget.
