The Oregon Conference is making available an incredible opportunity for you the church audio persons. A one-day training that consists of 4 two-hour training sessions. Every session includes a “lab” for students to practice newfound knowledge and skills on provided training equipment.

David, the trainer, has a passion for the audio ministry in churches. He says “if the audience does not know you are there then you are doing your job. You all know how distracting it is when there are audio issues. Especially if it happens regularly and throughout an event. We want God to be heard not the issues with the sound system”. David has vast experience and knowledge. He has been the Chief Sound Engineer at New Hope Community Church up off Sunnyside Road here in the Portland area. He has mixed several of the live performances that Adventist Health brings in for their Celebration of Thanksgiving and has toured and worked with many top Christian recording artists. David does not just bring equipment for each student to do their own mixing, teach the technical jargon, and theory, but he also brings the spiritual aspect to light throughout the day. Why we do this ministry. “We are audio disciples. God has called us to use our talents”. David also gives advice on how to deal kindly with disgruntled listeners. Like that one person who comes up to you and says “the audio is too loud”.
