The day turned out pretty well. There weren’t any keynote sessions today; just breakout sessions. I went to sessions about video switching, video venues, and lighting. I was a little disappointed by the lighting session. It was advertised as “Creating Impact with Light”, but it was really just a product demo for a lighting manufacturer. The lights were cool, but I probably wouldn’t have attended if I knew it was a demo.
The day ended with a tour of a church about an hour away from the city. It’s called Grace Community Church in Noblesville, Indiana. They are in the process of creating some new sanctuary spaces in their building. I know the architect that designed their new space and was eager to see his work in person. It was very cool. He spent a lot of time designing the sanctuary to feel intimate even though it can accommodate approximately 1500 people. I’ll post some pictures of the space later this week.
I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s keynote. Mark Beeson, senior pastor of Granger Community Church will be speaking. I’ll write more about Granger later in the week as well.
