The Next Level of Campus Worship : LifePoint

I am truly amazed.  I have been out at the Stewarts Creek Campus of LifePoint several times already – and was already aware that we would be lowering a screen on the stage during the sermon to show Pat’s sermon in full size – but I wasn’t prepared for what I saw tonight.

The video you see above is not of Pat…well…not really.  (For those of you who aren’t aware, “Pat” refers to Pat Hood – Senior Pastor at LifePoint Church.)  It is actually a video that is cleverly done of Pat broadcast on technology that leaves the viewer feeling like Pat…is actually there.

The technology was designed and implemented by DW Productions.  I got a chance to talk to owner Danny Whetstone tonight while we were holding the open house at the Stewarts Creek Campus.  Danny has been on the cutting edge of production technology for years- and has used his expertise to take our satellite campus to the next level.

I can remember two years ago blogging about two years ago about having holograms in worship.  The tasteful and precise manner that Danny’s team has set up this virtual-sermon setup is ranking right up there with holograms.  As the live worship set ends, a enormous screen is lowered – covering the entire stage opening.

The 100% black-painted sanctuary and lighting gives the appearance that there is no screen present at all once the projection starts.  As you watch the stream – it is easy to forget that you are in the presence of technology.  But, then again, isn’t that the point?

Sure had my daughter fooled –

If your church is interested in planting church campuses – or if you are interested in the technology for your own church – contact Danny today.  Click here for more information.

    When we walked in the front door, Katie asked "Will Pastor Pat be here?" I answered, "Well, I HEAR him", b/c I was, of course, hearing the very transmission that you show here. I glanced into the sanctuary … and for about 2.5 seconds, was certain that he was standing on the stage. Wow. Eric went up on stage to measure … he is almost exactly life sized. And Lloyd says he's not even in HD yet. 😉 I was blown away tonight, not just by that amazing bit of technology, but by the entire campus. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but it wasn't this. I should have expected nothing less from a church with a core value of excellence … and I am very, very, VERY thankful to be a part of such a church. Everything … Soul Station (can we have those t.v.'s @ FBC, please?), Creation Celebration, the preschool wing, the student lounge … EVERYTHING was amazing. Nicely, nicely done.

    We're STILL trying to convince Amber that he wasn't there. I know of pastors that have long-since left this world that would leap for joy to know that this kind of technology even exists.

    I talked a lot in my article about DW Live – and they deserve it…
    …but one other group that CANNOT go without mention is our entire Worship Arts department and creative team. They never cease to amaze me with the advances they make.

    Thanks for sharing, Amy. lol…Crystal was sad when I told her you guys weren't coming out there. She saw you walking with the kiddos from the playground and said "are they coming out here?" She looked a little disappointed when I told her no. She wants to see more familiar faces there.

    The truly awesome thing, though, about that campus…is that it already feels like home. We've been up there only about six times…yet we feel like we've been there for years. It is a good feeling to have.

    And…no…you can't have the hi-defs from Soul Station. 🙂

    The cool thing is….this video was shot on my 3.0 MP cell phone – so the quality stinks. If you want to see the real deal….join us September 13th!
