Removing the Speakers in Front of the Stained Glass Window?!

As those of you at Leawood know, there are two large speaker arrays suspended to the right and left of Jesus. Recently an acoustician who leads a firm that rigs speakers for concerts approached us saying he might have a speaker solution that would eliminate the need for the current speakers, replacing them with speakers that hugged the ceiling.

We tested this solution earlier this year and invited feedback. The feedback on sound quality was overwhelmingly positive (85%) but the acoustician took the critiques, identified the locations, and further tuned the system. There will be further tweaks if we purchase the new system, but we feel our month of testing demonstrates the system would meet the needs of our congregation.

We have half the cost of the new system built into the Leawood Generation to Generation campaign (we had planned to install hoists to raise the speakers before and after worship – these funds would not be needed for hoists and could be redeployed for these new speakers, but this would only cover half the cost of the new speakers). The question is if we can raise the other half of the cost of the new speakers. If we could, they can be ordered and installed before the end of the year. I know that for many of you, there has been a deep desire to have an unobstructed view of the window. If you would like to help make that possible, please let us know by clicking the button below. The cost to do this, over and above what we have built on for the hoists, would be $250,000.

Generation to Generation

Throughout scripture God calls one generation to pass on the faith to the next. In this campaign, we’re seeking to ensure our buildings and programs faithfully connect with and care for all people of the church and community, from the oldest to the youngest. Thus, ensuring our ability to pass on the faith from generation to generation. To learn more, click the button below.
