USA - Radiant Church, a thriving multi-site church located in Tampa, Florida, has recently overhauled the AVL system in its dedicated space for elementary-aged children. This included the installation of 37 ADJ lighting fixtures to create a vibrant and versatile rig designed to provide a fun-filled and contemporary backdrop for Sunday services and midweek events hosted by the church’s lively ‘Radiant Kids’ ministry.
Planted by Pastor Aaron Burke and his wife Katie in 2013, with a vision of creating a life-giving church that would transform a community, Radiant Church has quickly grown to spread across five locations in the Tampa Bay area. With an attendance approaching 4,000, it was placed at number 5 in Outreach Magazine’s 2020 list of Fastest-Growing Churches in America. Throughout this growth, the church has continually invested in the AV technology they use to present vibrant worship and engaging teaching, both for those gathering in person and watching online.
Their latest project was a complete technical revamp of the dedicated space used for ministry to fourth and fifth graders at the church’s flagship South Tampa location. The technical supplier for the new audio, video and lighting system was Atmospheric Productions, a company with a long history of working with Radiant Church. Owned and operated by business partners Andre T Miller and Jay Parmenter, who have over 20 years of collective industry experience, the company was established in 2015 and specializes in church integration projects.
“Radiant Church has been a client of Atmospheric Productions since the very beginning,” explains Andre, “however up until now most of the work has been smaller upgrades and replacements. This was the first project for them where we essentially designed and installed a complete AVL system for a space from the ground up. The technical setup in this room was previously very basic, so we really started from scratch although we did utilize a few Mega 64 Profile Plus LED pars that were already there. The leadership at the church essentially said to us: ‘here’s a budget; we need front light, house light, effect lighting and we want it to look cool for the kids.’”
With the church’s remit in mind, the first fixture Andre settled on for the project was ADJ’s Focus Beam LED. Andre chose to position two on the stage itself to shoot beams upwards and to rig another pair to the ceiling in the centre of the room.
The other fixture that Andre settled on early in the planning process was ADJ’s Focus Spot 4Z, a moving head spot that has proven particularly popular in the house of worship market. Four of these units are rigged to an upstage bar with the Mega 64 Profile Plus units that were already in situ positioned in between.
The lighting package on stage is completed by six of ADJ’s UB 12H linear LED wash fixtures. Four of these units are lined along the back of the stage, with two further fixtures positioned at either side of the stage pointing inwards. Another fixture that is extremely popular with church integrators, the UB 12H is powered by twelve 6-Watt HEX (RGBWA+UV) LEDs and features magnetic interlocking end caps that make it easy to quickly and precisely align multiple units to create a continuous line of LEDs.
The final lighting product Andre specified for this project was ADJ’s compact, high output, low-power MOD STQ LED wash fixture
To complete the system, Atmospheric Productions supplied a MAGMA PRIME hazer from ADJ’s sister company Magmatic.
“The senior kids’ pastor was very excited when he first saw the new setup,” confirms Andre. “The ministry likes to keep things fresh and exciting for the students by having different themes throughout the year, so they decorate the space accordingly. This new lighting rig makes that super easy.”
