Second Baptist Church

Second Baptist Church, located out of Houston, TX, was founded nearly 100 years ago. One of the largest megachurches in the country, Second Baptist boasts six campuses and 85,000 registered members of the congregation. The evangelical church’s mission is simply to share the news of Jesus Christ. SBC seeks to accomplish this by expanding the reach of the church throughout the United States and creating a welcoming community to all Christians.

Our Work

The Project

The Project

The
Objective

Second Baptist Church was preparing to build two new satellite campuses that would be extensions of the main Woodway Campus and have very similar architectural and technological designs. CTS was chosen to complete total design-builds at the Cypress and Cinco Ranch campuses, including all AVL and acoustics. The most important goals of the project were to 1) integrate AVL systems with similar and compatible operational processes to the other campuses’ systems, 2) set the stage for unified system upgrades for these campuses in the future, and 3) design and build unique audio and video systems specific to a rare in-the-round worship center, all while fulfilling the aesthetic vision. The greatest challenge was space-planning related to the stage area and navigating limited trim height, locations of video screens, and line arrays. CTS was tasked with designing, building, and installing AVL and acoustics systems in a 4,000-seat worship center in the round, five children and youth worship spaces, and the audio/video systems distribution center.

The
Results

As a result of the work CTS completed, Second Baptist Church had brand new campuses with similar and compatible technological workflows, and aesthetic design features they appreciated from their other campuses. The project finished on time and stayed within the client’s budget. To this day, the AVL systems are efficient and align with the functionality of the other campuses’ systems. CTS effectively executed on a difficult and very particular goal of designing and constructing the AVL for a church with an in-the-round sanctuary, multiple spaces, and various building levels. The client was ecstatic with the Cypress and Cinco Ranch campuses and was very appreciative to us for partnering with them on this complex but very rewarding endeavor.
