Located outside of Kansas City, MO, LifeQuest Church has created an environment that invites everyone for in-person and now live streamed services. They did this by implementing three new Maxell MC-WX8265 LCD projectors to create a triple-wide display at the front of the sanctuary.
The Need for Upgraded Projectors
Living in the digital age, LifeQuest Church found that high-quality videos and graphics play a key role in speaking to its congregation. The church knew updating its projector technology would provide an enhanced experience for both in-person and virtual services.
Working with Shepard Media, LifeQuest Creative Pastor Jordan Mills wanted to provide the congregation with high-quality imagery to create an immersive experience. “We want to do everything with excellence and we want to do it right,” says Mills. “So when it came time for the church to upgrade its projector, we began our journey to finding a new one that wouldn’t just match what we had before but would instead enhance it.”
From immersive graphics to song lyrics, the vibrant display utilizing the Maxell MC-WX8265 LCD projectors is designed to welcome the congregation to join the service both in-person and at home. Along with standard features such as Perfect Fit 2 which make lining up the three projectors easy, the MC-WX8265 LCD projector has 6,500 ANSI lumens brightness and Accentualizer technology to provide vivid imagery for virtual and in-person viewers.
“The Maxell projectors fit all our needs as a church and our price range,” Mills notes. “In the end, the decision really came down to quality. Working with Shepard Media, we took up a special offering and cast the vision for our LifeQuesters on how updating the projectors can, and would, enhance the worship experience. We wanted to be sure that what we bought would make an immediate impact and we found the Maxell projectors would do just that.”
Prior to 2020, LifeQuest Church had been live streaming its services as an afterthought, thinking maybe someone would see it and show up in-person. Now, Mills says that live streaming the services is becoming an outreach opportunity, a way to share their message and services with those who may not otherwise experience it. With many worshipers feeling safest at home, live streaming allows those who are geographically far to join in and still feel connected to their congregation.
The new projectors, and triple wide setup, has opened creative possibilities for LifeQuest Church. Now able to project larger, clearer images and videos, the pastors and congregation have seen a noticeable difference. “I didn’t realize that video could be this sharp and clear until we got our new Maxell projectors,” Mills concludes.
