The church began its history in 1920 with a congregation of 12, and now, three campuses later, has grown to a congregation of over 25,000. The new location was required to fill the need for a larger worship space to accommodate the growing congregation.
“We were chosen as the church’s design/build partner for audio, video and lighting, including systems for the sanctuary as well as significant performance systems in auxiliary spaces such as a chapel, conference rooms, youth and the children’s area,” states Doug Hood, Owner/President, CSD.
A major undertaking, the 3,000-seat contemporary gospel northwest campus features a choir, band, praise team and for most sermons, has 120 members located on the stage. Its new audio system is centered around a NEXO GEO S12 line array consisting of 14x GEO S1210s and 27x GEO S1230s all in white, Yamaha PM5D-RH digital audio console at front of house, and M7CL-48 used for monitors.
“CSD and Eastern Star Church were looking for a high output yet small-format speaker system that could keep up with the high-energy worship style of the church, and we knew the NEXO system would be a perfect fit,” says Hood.
Hood noted that Yamaha consoles were chosen for this location, as was the case with the first two Eastern Star Church campuses.
