Harvester Christian Church

St. Charles, MO


Harvester’s main worship space has been designed with WAVE’s VenueFLEX process.  This combination of show control systems, surround audio, and integrated video, and lighting systems allows Harvester to deliver content to their audience in a modern and clear way.

Our Approach

WAVE worked hand-in-hand with Harvester to implement a fully-immersive experience throughout their new facility.  Every detail, from the visual and aural experience in the auditorium, down to the integration of information systems in the administration suite, was meticulously planned on paper and then implemented.

Audio Design

Audio Design

The main auditorium features a high-impact audio system, providing VenueFLEX surround sound in every seat.

Acoustic Design

The acoustics of the space are optimized to enable contemporary worship, with tight bass and high-impact audio.  Throughout the design stage, sound isolation was key to the design strategy, allowing the auditorium to operate in a crowded commercial development and adjacent to residential property.  Noise control is key, providing a quiet, controlled environment for live recording and broadcast.

Video Design

Video Design

Dynamic visuals are provided by a large upstage projection screen, complemented by side screens in the space.  Media servers provide automated playback and content management across the system.

Lighting Design

Lighting Design

Every fixture in the sizable lighting rig is based on LED sources, providing both color mixing and automation as well as significant operational savings.  Moving lights are controlled via a network-based lighting control system.  Full integrated control of media servers and synchronization via timecode is provided throughout.  All house and architectural lighting is integrated into the control system, will full color mixing throughout the audience, breaking down the “fourth wall” and immersing the audience in color.

Full Campus Design

WAVE’s AVL design extends outside the main auditorium and into the facility as a whole.  A show-control system provides an immersive experience throughout the lobbies, integrating digital signage, color-changing LED lighting, and audio through multiple zones.  The same design strategy extends into the Children’s theaters and throughout the offices.

Information Technology

The entire WAVE AVL system is integrated into a WAVE-designed enterprise IT network, supporting both the real-time production uses and the office user and server systems.  WAVE implemented a fully-intelligent wireless network, and coupled the entire facility to the internet and to a dedicated fiber-optic network between campuses.
