Dual Purpose

FishHawk Fellowship Church in Lithia, FL came to InteRise with a unique project: the church wanted to build a space on a cash-only basis to remain debt free. Together with InteRise, the project was completed in several phases, over the course of two years.

The scope of the project was unique in design. InteRise set out to create a hybrid space dually used for both worship and a gym. Of course, this presented design challenges for several reasons, but chief among them was no one wants a scoreboard in their place of worship.

The Solution

InteRise installed Christie projectors that doubled as scoreboards with the InteRise custom designed Q-Sys automated sports interface. Additional items were needed to protect the gear when it was in use as a gym.

Using Technology to Create Connection

Decisions made during this phase were also made with the dual applications of the space at the forefront of planning. The cornerstone of the sanctuary’s audio package was was the DiGiCo SD9 console. The console purchase was made in addition to a d&b 10AL line array system, 8S fill loudspeakers, and 18S-SUB subwoofers. The new FishHawk line array delivers scalability, flexibility, diversity and maximum efficiency with dedicated rigging accessories. With their dual horizontal coverage and accurate pattern control, they are appropriate for both sporting events and worship service audio applications.

“InteRise was very supportive and customized a schedule to help us stay within our financial goals.”

— Matthew Leach, Pastor of Worship at FishHawk
