Book: Sound, Lighting and Video: A Resource for Worship is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Resource! I'm a worship pastor and I got this book to get good info on some purchases for the future. Not only does this book dive into the history of church technology but gets very specific and sites many examples. I found it extremely helpful for research and to better my knowledge on tech ministry. A must have for you and your team!
