Sound Engineering for Churches

I am by no means a recording professional, nor am I in a position to be running a school on sound engineering. I am, however, quite a bit more experienced than many sound guys in small churches, and I want to be able to share my experience and knowledge with everyone who is eager to learn. Good sound engineering is not easy, nor is it something you can learn in a day. There are certain aspects, however, that can help you get on your feet in a short period of time. These building blocks are fundamental to running sound in any environment, and as a sound engineer, you would be lost without them.

I am creating this section of my blog to make these lessons I have learned accessible to you, whether you have stumbled across my page by accident or whether I have specifically referred you to it. My aim is certainly not to give a university-level course about the ins and outs of sound but rather to make a series of instructions to make sound an activity with purpose, done with a ministerial mindset to reach this world for God.

This section of my blog, as with each of my blogs and their respective sections, will be a work in progress. My attention may shift to and from them as the weeks, months, and years go by, but I hope to have this section in particular ready for a full basic coverage of the world of live mixing within the next year or so. See the Nav Panel on the left-hand side for movement between articles within this section on sound engineering, and the bottom of the page for completed articles to date.

I hope you find this information as valuable in your situation as I have found it in mine over the years!

P.S. If you wish to share this blog with others, which is highly encouraged, please give them the link to this page rather than individual articles within this section, as I may be changing the URLs as time goes by. This page’s URL will remain as it is for the sake of consistent access to these materials.
