Decatur, GA––When Messenger Media Systems of Covington, Georgia was called in to do the audio for the New Life Church, the primary challenge was providing a powerful system for a spacious sanctuary on a limited budget.
As Senior Systems Engineer Christopher Bragg, puts it, “The client had purchased an old high school which they used for administrative offices and built a large sanctuary behind it.
