Riverside, CA (April 29, 2008)--The Mission Worship Center in Riverside, CA recently experienced structural damage, which forced it to move services into its gymnatorium. Realizing that the gym was not going to handle the makeshift system from the worship hall, Terry Stewart of Simon Productions in Winnetka, CA worked with Pastor Justin Frailey of the church to get a new McCauley Sound iDESIGN installation into the space.
Justin Frailey, pastor of Mission Worship Center, explained that when a beam in the main sanctuary collapsed--the structural damange--closer inspection of the area revealed that the audio system was also on its last legs. "Once we started looking at a permanent install, we realized our equipment was inadequate," he said. "If it hadn't been for the structural failure, we probably wouldn't have upgraded our system--it was a blessing in disguise."
Turning the gymnatorium into a worship facility didn't happen overnight--more like a month. When Terry Stewart arrived, the space was just four walls, but working day and night, Simon Productions completed the installation in what he referred to as "record time. We constructed a custom stage, acoustic treatments, installed a new power scheme in the room, built three thirty foot lighting trusses and knocked it all out in one month."
The new McCauley system sports four iD112-4s, two iD208-26s, two iD108-26s, two AC288s and two SM72-2s. Once the main sanctuary is re-built, Mission Worship Center has already decided to go with a McCauley Sound line array based on its experience with the new system.
