LET THERE BE LIGHT

Church lighting is about enhancing the worship experience, not distracting from it.

Shine Through.


Church Lighting Design.

From the moment people walk into a church, the first thing they'll see (quite literally) is the lighting. Lighting sets the atmosphere, plain and simple. Proper lighting design can take a large room and make it feel like an intimate setting. From hazers to movers, par cans to dimmers, house lights to atmospheric lighting and everything in between... Summit has you covered.

From The Stage To Your Eyes

Stage lighting is crucial in creating a dramatic and dynamic worship experience. It not only catches the attention of the human eye but a well-lit stage produces higher quality video as well. The types and quantities of fixtures, as well as the lighting design, are carefully considered to craft the specific worship experience each community aims for. Ultimately, the goal of lighting is to create an experience that puts Jesus at the center of the room by using visuals that physically draw the eyes in.

Details, Design, Definition

Much like our approach when it comes to creating sound systems, the details are in the design. Our Project Managers work with Summit’s team of in-house designers to plan out lighting plots, making sure every aspect is covered. This defines a guideline for our Install Team so they know where to point and focus lights to provide the best visual experience possible.

Intricate designing like this allows us to greatly expand the possibilities of your lighting system. With the rise in availability of LED house light fixtures, we are able to help you create a space where the house lights mirror what’s happening on the stage giving you the ability to erase that dividing line between stage and audience. We believe that cohesive and well-designed lighting can break people out of the physical space they are in and help move them into deeper moments of worship.

Versatility - Because Everyone Likes Options

We design our systems with what we call a “scalable infrastructure”. This means if you decide to change your stage for special occasions or events, your lighting package has the ability to scale with you. We also make sure that our designs are capable of going beyond the initial install. We make sure that if you want to add more lights, by all means, you can add more lights. Adaptability and versatility are key in a time where technology is constantly changing.

To Haze or Not to Haze... That is the Question!

Haze in the air is what makes sunrises and sunsets beautiful. Without haze, a sunset is still beautiful, but it loses a certain depth that is created with even a small amount of haze. Many churches are hesitant to add haze because they believe it turns the service from worship to “rock and roll concert.” We definitely empathize with this perspective. While adding a haze machine or two is optional, when done correctly, it takes the worship experience to the next level. But we also acknowledge that too much of a good thing is not a good thing at all. Ultimately, the decision is completely in your hands. All of our design decisions come down to one thing: “Is this the right decision for this church and their DNA as a church community.”
