stocktonFirst Baptist Church in Stockton
USA - An extensive package of ADJ lighting fixtures has been installed in the new contemporary worship centre of First Baptist Church in Stockton. Amongst other fixtures, Vizi CMY300s serve as the main moving head luminaires, creating beam effects and GOBO projections on stage, while COB Cannon Washes cover both stage colour and house lighting duties.
When the opportunity arose for the thriving First Baptist Church in Stockton, CA to acquire a neighbouring building they embraced it to create a dedicated space for their growing contemporary worship services. The church’s leadership worked with local supplier Nor Cal Pro Audio to specify a modern lighting system that would allow maximum flexibility for the space, allowing it to be used both for services and as a community centre.
Headed up by Jorge González, Nor Cal Pro Audio specialises in providing audio and lighting installation services to a wide variety of establishments - but especially churches - throughout the North California area.
“To work out exactly the right moving head fixture for the job,” explains González, “we organised a shoot-out at the church’s new building. I arranged for a number of different lighting manufacturers to bring along their products, and Saul and the pastors decided that the ADJ Vizi CMY300 was the option they wanted to go for.”
González and his team installed six of the fixtures on an upstage truss. This allows them to project Gobo patterns down onto the stage, create mid-air beam effects above it and also generate washes of colour anywhere they are required. In addition, two further Vizi CMY300s were installed on a front of house truss, which can serve as spotlights. These fixtures are also fitted with custom Gobos of the church’s logo, which can be projected onto blank walls at the sides of the auditorium.
To add static colour washing to the stage, seven of ADJ’s popular COB Cannon Wash fixtures are mounted to the upstage truss between each of the moving heads.
In addition, eight of the COB Cannon Wash DW versions of the fixture - which feature variable colour temperature white LED sources - are used to provide in-fill. 
This extensive lighting installation is rounded out by eight of ADJ’s Dotz Par tri-colour COB wash fixtures.
