University Baptist Church Builds New Worship Center

The Challenge 

From 2018 to 2020, University Baptist Church (UBC) experienced remarkable growth, with membership and weekly attendance increasing by over 250%. As the congregation expanded, the need for adequate space became a primary focus. In 2021, the church launched the Make Him Known initiative, which was an endeavor to reinforce the church’s disciple-making mission and included funding for constructing a new worship center and expanding the current facility. During the spring of 2022, University Baptist Church broke ground for the construction of a new 19,000 square-foot worship center. 

UBC was committed to using technology to better connect with people and to spread the gospel.

Project Overview: 

In 2022, UBC selected Ambient Productions to install a new AVL system in their Beavercreek campus. 

Our team orchestrated a comprehensive outfitting of UBC’s new worship center. We began by partnering with architects in the design process and walked through the entire building and process with the church leadership. We provided custom solutions to meet all of their AVL needs and trained their volunteers and staff on all their new systems.

Ambient did the full install of all A/V in our new 600+ person facility. We appreciated their big picture thinking, the kind & personable team, and the quality of work. This was a big job and had a lot of complications & Ambient handled it all with integrity, creativity, and follow through. Months after the job is done, they’re still a great resource for help, training & creative solutions.

AVL services

Ambient Productions employed the following Audio, Video & Lighting (AVL) services before and during this  project.  We are still involved today with ongoing maintenance.

  • Planning – Listened to the vision of the leadership and began proposing custom AVL solutions. 
  • Designing – Worked with architects to maximize aesthetic and acoustic design.
  • Infrastructure – Worked alongside other contractors to install an infrastructure to handle the proposed systems (electrical work, pulling cable, installing rigging points, etc.)
  • Installation – Implemented the proposed systems along the timeline of the project.  
  • Tuning – Fine tuned the audio, video and lighting systems to accommodate the new venue. 
  • Training – Trained staff and volunteers to be competent users of the new systems.

AVL Solutions at UBC

In the dynamic world of church services, audio-visual and lighting play pivotal roles in enhancing the worship experience. For UBC, achieving the right balance of visual spectacle and auditory clarity was of paramount importance. Drawing from top-tier vendors, our tailored approach ensured that every sermon, song, and sacred moment resonated beautifully, both visually and audibly. Below, we outline the key systems and vendors instrumental in this transformation.

Result

The new AVL system has allowed UBC to improve the quality of their audio and video broadcasts, and to reach more people with their message.

UBC began meeting in their fully functional worship center in April of 2023. Ambient Productions was involved in the project from the fall of ‘22 until the project was completed. Ambient continues to stay connected with UBC in order to provide routine system maintenance and further training on their systems.
