Years ago, I made the decision to completely put my life in our Lord's hands and to be as devoted a servant as I possibly can be. To that end, I have decided to try to utilize the talents He has given me in the most productive ways possible, so I'm offering my 25+ years of experience in audio, video and music, in an effort to save you the grief and suffering that nearly always follow the first two options described above by Don Davis.
Having designed and built professional recording studios where ANY/ALL outside interference is intolerable, it's been heartbreaking for me to install or try to fix previously purchased "systems" in churches that have already been built. They end up having to "settle" for a "little" hum & noise or "some" seats where the sound is too loud or unintelligible. Monitor systems feedback or the performers have to suffer the inability to hear well enough to give their best. I've been told many times "If only we had met you before "
The comprehensive system design I offer will not only solve these problems, but will also include methodology to "future proof", so that as you identify the need to institute upgrades, costs will be minimized. The key is consultation during the initial planning phase.
I have been blessed over the years to cultivate a team of specialists ranging from Grammy-winning audio engineers to licensed electrical engineers who specialize in the audio/video requirements (beyond most licensed electrical engineers!). I've also been blessed with the personal experience of recording, composing, arranging, playing, mixing, and mastering a multitude of albums/CDs along with years of both performing and mixing music in live situations. I've recorded Grammy-winning artists and Platinum selling artists in studios that I've designed, and I've done the audio engineering for their "live" performances as well.
If your church has had an unfortunate experience or you are simply READY for a professionally designed sound system custom-tailored to your specific needs, I am trusting The Holy Spirit to witness a "match" (your need, our team's abilities) in that you may call me for an initial consultation at no charge to you.
Obediently In Christ,
This speech was broadcast by legendary ABC Radio commentator Paul Harvey on April 3, 1965:
If I were the Devil . . . I mean, if I were the Prince of Darkness, I would of course, want to engulf the whole earth in darkness. I would have a third of its real estate and four-fifths of its population, but I would not be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree, so I should set about however necessary to take over the United States. I would begin with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: “Do as you please.” “Do as you please.” To the young, I would whisper, “The Bible is a myth.” I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I would confide that what is bad is good, and what is good is “square”. In the ears of the young marrieds, I would whisper that work is debasing, that cocktail parties are good for you. I would caution them not to be extreme in religion, in patriotism, in moral conduct. And the old, I would teach to pray. I would teach them to say after me: “Our Father, which art in Washington” . . .
If I were the devil, I’d educate authors in how to make lurid literature exciting so that anything else would appear dull and uninteresting. I’d threaten T.V. with dirtier movies and vice versa. And then, if I were the devil, I’d get organized. I’d infiltrate unions and urge more loafing and less work, because idle hands usually work for me. I’d peddle narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. And I’d tranquilize the rest with pills. If I were the devil, I would encourage schools to refine young intellects but neglect to discipline emotions . . . let those run wild. I would designate an athiest to front for me before the highest courts in the land and I would get preachers to say “she’s right.” With flattery and promises of power, I could get the courts to rule what I construe as against God and in favor of pornography, and thus, I would evict God from the courthouse, and then from the school house, and then from the houses of Congress and then, in His own churches I would substitute psychology for religion, and I would deify science because that way men would become smart enough to create super weapons but not wise enough to control them.
If I were Satan, I’d make the symbol of Easter an egg, and the symbol of Christmas, a bottle. If I were the devil, I would take from those who have and I would give to those who wanted, until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. And then, my police state would force everybody back to work. Then, I could separate families, putting children in uniform, women in coal mines, and objectors in slave camps. In other words, if I were Satan, I’d just keep on doing what he’s doing.
Paul Harvey, Good Day.

I asked God
I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.
I asked God to grant me patience.
I asked God to give me happiness.
I asked God to spare me pain.
I asked God to make my spirit grow.
I asked God for all things that I might enjoy life.
I asked God to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves
May God Bless You,
