Victory World Church (VWC) is a vibrant multi-cultural organization and multi-campus facility located in Norcross, Georgia. Victory’s main campus welcomes more than 8,500 people from over 100 nations each weekend, and the ministry has expanded to include church affiliations such as Victory North in Kennesaw; Classic City Community Church in Athens; and most recently, its new satellite campus, Victory @ Hamilton Mill in Buford. In 2010, former R&B singer-songwriter and record producer Montell Jordan joined as lead worship pastor, boosting its membership exponentially.
The initial challenges that prompted the upgrade were multi-fold, says Kevin Entrenkin, Director of Engineering for Clark Over the years the integration solutions company based in Dallas and Atlanta has helped VWC update their technology needs including building a broadcast video suite in 2009, upgrading the PA to full Meyer system in 2010 and adding a Webcast Studio and console in 2011. In 2013, Entrenkin and VWC’s Technical Director Nathan Williams laid out a plan to update VWCs main auditorium consoles, securing a DiGiCo SD7 at FOH, a DiGiCo SD5 at monitors and another SD5 in its Webcast Studio—144 Inputs and 112 Outputs over the entire system—with local DiGiCo SD Racks at each location. Two additional SD Racks were added on stage to handle the I/O for stage inputs including wireless Mics, and In-Ear Monitor Systems. All of the consoles are running on a dedicated Optocore ring implemented specifically for the consoles.
