Technical Arts is a relatively new term in the realm of church ministry. It has evolved the audio/visual department into a ministry with a broader focus that includes multiple technological and creative disciplines. We’ve moved from using analog sound boards to digital consoles that contain more processing power than the first space shuttle to land on the moon. Lyrics that used to be projected onto the wall by overhead projectors have now been replaced by computers running specialized software that can deliver a projected medium with moving backgrounds and eye-catching visual elements. The audience of a sermon preached on a Sunday morning has now expanded from just those who were in physical attendance in the building to anyone in the world, through the use of the internet, which provides the ability to stream our worship services live and provide video/audio archival recordings. Audio/visual technicians have now become technical artists, and with the recent advance of technology comes a learning curve that has been met by a team of talented individuals, who have a passion for helping others to pursue and grow in their relationship with God.
The Technical Arts ministry at East Gate Alliance is always at work behind the scenes providing audio, visual and technical support for our worship services and other church events. In nearly every space on our campus, we are hard at work! Projectors, televisions, projection screens, computers, networking equipment, speakers, microphones, stage lights… it’s all technical, and it’s all presented to the Lord as a form of worship.
We are more than just technicians though! We strive to be servant leaders who use their passion for technology to support the message of the Gospel and make a difference in the lives of people who attend or visit our church. We strongly desire to serve God and His church with excellence, and we have embraced the challenge, raising the bar and being relevant to an increasingly technology savvy society. We strive to use the tools available to us to not only make our church attractive, but also to effectively communicate clearly the message of God’s grace and mercy.
"How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?"
— Romans 10:14
