Christian Faith Center in Seattle is one of the latest large houses of worship to elevate the sonic quality of their services, concerts, and seasonal productions with XL8, the flagship digital mixing system from Midas.

Pastored by Casey and Wendy Treat for 28 years, Christian Faith Center has one of the largest and fastest-growing congregations in the United States. The church is located on two main campuses in suburban Seattle-one of which is a state-of-the-art facility completed in September 2007-and 8,000 people a week now attend services at the two sites.
