Jacksonville, Florida’s Celebration Church is one of the nation's fastest growing churches. With attendee figures of more than 12,000 per week, the services held in Celebration Church's state-of-the-art, newly constructed worship arena feature an energetic, next generation praise and worship experience that infuses diverse genres and styles.

The Church wanted to make the audience feel a part of the onstage experience through lighting and is using over 100 Chroma-Q Inspire premium performance, color-changing LED house lights to provide an 'immersive' environment during its worship services.

Featuring an installation of 96 Chroma-Q Inspire fixtures above the auditorium's seating areas, the unit's extensive RGBW color-mixing palette provides a seamless lighting transition throughout the room, from the stage to audience.

Synched via DMX with the stage lighting and controlled via a Jands Vista L5 console, the Inspire's fully homogenized beam provides mixed washes of soft pastels and vibrant, bold saturates, as well as clean whites

“The worship arena is the new hub of the ministry, and we wanted to approach this project with out of the box thinking to make sure we addressed key lighting specific to our worship experience,” says Alex Castro, Design and Logistics Director at Celebration Church. “We wanted people to have an ‘onstage’ experience when worshipping at the Church, to ensure they’re part of the action.”

Trey Smith, Lead Lighting Designer at Celebration Church, continues: “With the Inspire houselights, we are able to create a fully immersive worship

environment that makes the congregants feel the emotion and intensity of the experience no matter where they sit. With over 200 LED fixtures and almost 50 moving lights onstage, the Inspire houselights seamlessly carry the look and feel from onstage to all around the Arena.” Next page
