Designing a new sanctuary, with an audio system that would both bring the pastor closer to the congregation and at the same time be able to provide a broadcast-quality feed to send to their sister sanctuary.

Two and one-half years in the making. The Lambs Chapel has opened their new campus in Burlington, North Carolina. The church’s campus is the second for the non-denominational Evangelical Christian church, with the original campus 10 miles away in Haw River. With the county population continuing to grow, the church decided to build the new campus and will continue to operate both facilities.
The Burlington campus spans 36 acres and includes a family life center, recreation facilities and an educational complex with children and student ministries, along with toddler and infant centers.
The main sanctuary is 90,000 square feet with seating for over 2,000 on the main floor and large balcony.
During the two years of design and preparation, Lambs Chapel relied on Kernersville, North Carolina-based AVL Environments for consultation and implementation of their audio and visual needs.
As Pastor Brian Biggers has described, “We use all sorts of technology to support our pastors and worship ministry team on a weekly basis. At The Lambs Chapel we love worshiping our Creator through the artistry He has given to each of us.”
With said importance, when it came to providing a solution for the chapel AVL Environments owner Brandon Munger noted, “our approach to design is based on two components – a comprehensive needs analysis and people,” noting of the latter, “Each system we design and install is based on face-to-face time with the client determining how technology can be leverage to engage people in the desired manner.”
For the new sanctuary, Munger had to look at a system that would both bring the pastor closer to the congregation and at the same time be able to provide a broadcast-quality feed to send to their sister sanctuary.
That was accomplished installing a 4K video production system comprised of two Sony XD Cam stations coupled with two Sony PXW automated cameras operated with a Vaddio Production Crew camera controller and ATEM 1M/E production studio switcher.
