MINISTRY SPOTLIGHT OF THE WEEK
SOUND & TECHNOLOGY
Contact: Frank Dosier; [email protected]; 828-252-1249
This ministry benefits everyone that attends St. Eugene's services and events. We have a state-of-the-art sound system as well as the finest inductive loop system in Western NC, serving those with hearing loss. People can receive audio transmitted directly to the T-Coil-enabled hearing aids. Those without T-Coils may use wireless body packs, available from one of the Hospitality Ministers.
In addition, due to the pandemic, this ministry has played a bigger role through the live-streaming of masses and other events. We reach individual and families in our community and throughout the country. We welcome people with experience or interest in audio, video, recording, webcasting, or wireless networking to join our group. We provide training, and the commitment per week is minimal. We would love to train the next group of sound engineers in this vital, ever-growing ministry.
