3 Trends to Watch for in Church Audio, Video, and Lighting Design

October 16, 2017

When it comes to smart and elevated audio, video, and lighting (AVL) design for your church or other house of worship, it may be a good idea to stay on top of the latest trends. These days it seems you can go in many different directions with your interior church aesthetics, which can make things even more challenging! Gone are the days of simply shining a light on the pastor, today’s church AVL options can completely transform a space, truly taking your congregation to the next level. Thanks to advances in technology, we are able to use audio, video, and lighting to create memorable worship experiences on a regular basis. Here at 4Stage AVL, we believe in offering our clients the highest quality products and ideas to ensure pastors can get their message across effectively. Our goal is to help worship teams lead church services effectively, while giving attendees a purposeful experience at church at the same time.

When we started looking at the various trends in church AVL design, we soon realized how hard it was going to be to narrow down our favorites. There are just so many different directions to go in and a plethora of awesome ideas, all of which are designed to take your sermon to the next level. That being said, we think these three trends speak for themselves in just how transformational they are. Let’s now take a look at our top three trends to watch for in church AVL design:


  • LED Walls – This is one of our favorite ways to create a born-again experience for worshippers. In the past, churches had to rely on projection technology in order for screens to show up on stage. These days LED wall technology has given churches the opportunity to convey on-stage visuals in a much more visually-stimulating and effective manner. When combined with adding windows for natural light, this tactic can be extremely captivating.


  • House lights – You may be thinking, ‘OK, house lights are nothing new’, but they are when you use a red/green/blue (RGB) color theme. Since technology has changed, churches are turning to AVL companies like ours to help them give worshipers a better experience through lighting. With RGB lights, churches can change the scenery of a room and make it a more cohesive experience between the stage and congregation.


  • Outdoor Audio – Another favorite trend of ours is the move towards installing outdoor audio. This is a great way to create a unique experience for worshipers before they even walk through the doors. We are seeing more and more churches think outside the box and add speakers outdoors with the intention of streaming worship music to help get people ready for the service. First impressions are everything, and this is certainly one way to get newcomers on your side!
