Grace College to Sponsor Free Sound Tech Training for Local Churches

Friday, April 21, 2017

Grace College’s worship arts program will host free sound tech training for Kosciusko County church tech teams on Friday, May 12 from 6 – 10 p.m.  The training will be led by Rick Stewart, senior sales consultant for Advanced Systems Group, at Christ’s Covenant Church, 2090 E. Pierceton Rd., Winona Lake, Ind.  Pre-registration is not required.

“One of the needs I hear most often from local pastors is training for volunteer audio and video tech teams at their churches,” said Walter Brath, assistant professor for worship arts at Grace College. “This event is for worship leaders, pastors and tech teams who want to grow in all aspects of mixing sound for worship teams. It is the first of what I hope to be several events sponsored by the worship arts program at Grace to assist local churches.”

Stewart has worked for over 25 years serving churches, schools and performing arts centers. He has degrees in music business and business administration in addition to many industry certifications in AVL and acoustical design. His experience includes designing and installing sound, lighting and video systems for hundreds of facilities, theme parks, cruise ships and bands across the country. Stewart understands the unique needs and desires of churches and utilizes all available audio/visual components needed for effective communication.

Grace College is pleased to host Stewart and help provide relevant training for local church worship leaders.  For questions or more information, please email Wally Brath at
