Technical Arts

Technical arts (tech arts) at West Ridge include the teams that support all aspects of the audio, video, media and theatrical lighting at the church. Our role includes providing sound reinforcement for the pastors and speakers during their messages while also providing a well balanced, but exciting audio experience during worship. The team also records the message from each service and uploads this to the web site.

Another important function of technical arts is to project the words to the songs to video screens at the front of the church. We format and load the words of the songs into the computer and then, during the service, display the proper portion of the song at just the right time.

We'd love to have you join our team!  We'll train you1.  Want to learn more?  Just send an email to mentioning your interest in technical arts. You could also send any specific questions about what we do to the tech team directly (

Ministry Leaders: To insure we get your images, videos, PowerPoint slides, Bible verses, etc. ready for the weekend services, please send to (or if the file is too large to email - send a link to a file sharing site where we can download) as soon as possible.  Many times we've received content as late as Sunday morning that must be reformatted and by then it is too late to get it converted, tested and plugged into the flow.  God is in the miracle business so many times it has still worked, but just so you know it is a challenge and usually a stressful situation!
