All Design and Installation of AVL System Major Technology Upgrade existing building
Council Road Baptist Church
When Council Road Baptist Church contracted Paragon 360 for a complete design-build sanctuary renovation, the goal was to create an environment allowing natural, authentic worship to take place. Everything from AVL to staging elements to interior design was updated, and the church was transformed into a space for all ages.
First Redeemer Church
“Beautiful”, “Modern”, and “Fresh” describe the renovations of First Redeemer Church, Cumming, GA. Paragon 360 provided modular staging, illuminated scenic pieces, strategically placed HD video projection, and lighting to create many versatile environments. The multiple uses of the same worship space is enabling the church to reach a broader audience.
Free Chapel Orange County - AVL System Design & Install
A two story former office building with 15ft ceiling trim height is not normally considered an ideal skeleton for a modern worship environment. However, innovative design and intentional execution by the Mankin team results in one of the most unique and engaging worship environments in the United States.
Free Chapel Spartanburg
Free Chapel approached us five months before opening their first campus in South Carolina, requiring a complete facility renovation. Mankin's proven process in broadcasting, multi-site church production, and executing large systems on expedited timelines awarded us the capability to hit a home run with this project.
Lakeside Christian Church - Taylor Mill Campus
Lakeside Christian Church recently planted a satellite campus in neighboring Taylor Mill. Purchasing an empty church building reflecting typical 1960's era A-frame construction, the renovation became a state-of-the-art video venue. The end result is a facility transformed and unrecognizable as the building leadership walked through 6 months previous.
New Hanover United Methodist Church
We completed renovations of our 220 seat Chapel in May 2016. This secondary worship space provides an area for various ministries. It includes a full house and stage lighting upgrade, a custom made cross, brand new tech booth, video system, and sound system.
Northeast Presbyterian Church
The primary goal of the renovation of this 30 year old sanctuary was a modernized space that equally served the needs of both traditional and contemporary worship styles. The results are stunning thanks to collaboration with the project architect and the innovation and attention to detail of the Mankin team.
The Bridge Christian Church
The Bridge Christian Church wished to provide a live experience for its congregation at its two campuses in Tucson, Arizona, simultaneously. Utilizing VITEC solutions, The Bridge now streams services between the main and satellite campuses, enabling worshippers to experience the service in perfect synchronization with error-free, low-latency video streaming..
