Setting your congregation up for the perfect Sunday morning experience is a difficult task for any church’s sound person to accomplish. After all, you’re responsible for setting the tone and getting your congregation in the right mindset to engage with the LORD. It’s not an easy thing to accomplish, but with a little bit of effort and some creative thinking, you’ll set yourself up for success.
Whether you’re the sound guy, the worship leader, or the lead pastor, you can be thinking about ways to improve the experience that your congregation has each Sunday morning. From tweaking your church sound systems to finding the perfect worship mix, there’s always something that can be done. Luckily for you, in today’s blog, we have three ideas to get you started off on the right foot! Keep reading to learn more.
A Few Suggestions for Your Church Sound Systems
Ask for Feedback
It doesn’t matter if you have the best ear for sound and know what technically sounds great if your congregation isn’t feeling it. Perhaps one of the best things you can do at your church is to ask random people for their genuine feedback on the sound. You might be surprised at what you hear.
One thing to note is that you might get conflicting feedback. The elderly couple who always sits in the front row might think it’s just too loud no matter what you do, while the 20-something couple hipster couple might think you need to turn up the bass. Both opinions are completely valid, so be sure to take everything with a grain of salt, knowing that it will never be perfect for everyone.
Another thing you can do to make your church media fresh is to mix things up. If you have the same worship band performing every week, it might be time to start tryouts for a second band. Perhaps you could swap between an electric band and acoustic sets or invite members of your congregation to make suggestions.
Either way, figuring out creative ways to interact with your congregation and see what their thoughts and opinions are is never a bad idea. Perhaps you could even recruit a team to learn all about church audio to get some fresh ears for your worship mix!
Try Something New
Sometimes it’s the simplest things that are the most effective. Maybe you need to add new songs to your church’s pre-service playlist. Perhaps you could change up the order of your service, saving worship for the end as a response to the day’s sermon.
It’s the little new things that go a long way towards keeping things feeling fresh and exciting for your congregation!
