Technical Arts


The Technical Arts Ministry of Calvary Chapel Chino Valley is split into three groups of operation.

1. Live Sound Ministry
2. Production Audio Ministry
3. Lighting Ministry

All three are very integral parts of the operation for our services, events and other activities that take place here at CCCV. It is the desire and constant goal of CCCV that the Lord Jesus Christ is exalted and evidenced through every ministry. There are many buttons and knobs to know about, but more than any of those is the knowledge that Jesus is our Lord. That is the best technical knowledge you can begin with. No one is required to have prior knowledge in doing sound or lighting engineering. Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up. Be a willing servant for the Lord.

Live Sound Ministry
The main purpose of the Live Sound ministry is to amplify the teaching from the pulpit, to mix the worship and allow each person sitting in the service to hear all elements of that service. This ministry works with the worship teams and guest artists that come in to provide them with a comfortable atmosphere to minister to the congregation. Generally, the goal is to diminish as many distractions as possible for those in the service.

Where: Sanctuary, Chapel, and off-site activities
When: Sunday AM and PM services, Wed. PM service, brunches/breakfasts
Time Commitment: 1 1/2 hours before a service or event, through the service, and approx. 1/2 hour after.

Production Audio Ministry
This ministry is primarily responsible for recording all of our main services and events on audio and digital tapes. Everything from the Radio program masters of A Foundation For Living, to providing audio mixes for the overflow TVs. All the cassette tapes, videotape, audio, and overflow areas are mixed by this ministry. It is a similar function to a television production audio engineers’ job. Though these words sound big and scary it is actually very enjoyable.

Where: Production room
When: Sunday AM and PM services, Wed. PM service, weddings and many other activities.
Time Commitment: 1 1/2 hours before a service or event through the service, and approx. 1/2 hour after.

Lighting Ministry
This ministry is specifically for Sanctuary events that require lighting and includes our Sunday AM and PM services and Wednesday PM service. Other events have been steadily increasing as we see the Lord moving in our community using our grounds here at CCCV. One example was the Men’s Conference recently hosted here.

Where: Sanctuary
When: Sunday AM & PM services, Wednesday PM
service, special events
Time Commitment: 1 1/2 hours before a service or event through the service, and about 1/2 hour after.
