New York (February 22, 2007)–Mention the phrase “traveling ministry,” and lots of people conjure up a sepia-toned vision of an old-fashioned revival tent pitched on a dusty field. That concept is just as outdated as the sepia, however–today’s ministries hit the road with modern audio equipment and deal with issues based very much in the 21st century. For example, Just for Him Ministries is a faith-based ministry that travels nationally, aiming to assist families in need by helping them connect with their local church. It does this through events it holds twice a month, all of which make use of its WorxAudio Technologies TrueLine line arrays.
According to Ken MacPhee, CEO of Just for Him Ministries and former stage manager for The Benny Hinn Ministries, his organization promotes spiritual wellness through music, games, food, clothing, and numerous additional support services-with much of its attention geared to helping youth gain focus in their lives. “Our events feature music, food and drinks, clothing, along with special praise and worship guests, and it’s all free,” he said. “Being able to project our message is a huge part of who we are and what we do, so the need for a capable sound reinforcement system goes without saying.”
MacPhee chose his organization’s WorxAudio Technologies TrueLine V10 line array: “I remember hearing them for the first time and being just blown away with the power and clarity of the system. We took delivery in October, and it has really changed the way we operate. I love having a powered system. For starters, we needn’t concern ourselves with the hassle of matching the speakers with suitable power amps, and it also simplifies our wiring considerably. The powered V10s create a much more streamlined system. We run six elements per side, and when we need a larger system, we take advantage of WorxAudio’s TrueLine networking solution.”
The WorxAudio Technologies TrueLine networking approach enables operators to subcontract the services and equipment of regional sound companies. “We’ve worked with Knoxville, TN-based Sound Ventures for some larger venues,” said MacPhee. “JR Sanders and his company also have a TrueLine system, so when we’ve needed more capability, we’ve worked together. In addition to the V10s, we’ve added some TrueLine TL.218SS subwoofers to the rig, and the sound is just incredible. It helps us get the message out, and at the end of the day, that’s what really matters.”
