Deadline Approaching for 2008 WFX Solomon Award Applications

The deadline for the 2008 WFX Solomon Awards is coming up soon! Worship Facilities Expo will be taking applications for the awards until August 8, 2008. The WFX Solomon Awards recognize church teams and individuals who have been instrumental in achieving excellence with their facilities design, management, marketing, usage and audio visual production. Sixteen categories give churches of all sizes the opportunity to share their achievements with WFX attendees and the readers of Church Production Magazine and Worship Facilities magazine.

Winners from 2007 include:

Most Innovative Church Facility: Crossroad Christian Church

By using world-class creativity and stewardship principles, including several innovative strategies derived from the theme park, entertainment, and event center world, Crossroads Church (Corona, California) appears not as a massive structure, but as a village-like composition of towers, metallic cornices, portals, and graphic walls intended to evoke a Mediterranean hilltown.

Best Special Project: Lake Tulloch Bible Church

The church set out to design a room for youth that would promote excitement and stability. This room, which has been named "Crosswalk" has incorporated lots of multimedia to enhance the ministry of worship, preaching, and discipleship. This project is a teenager's and youth pastor's dream come true.

Best Tech Director: Bill Swaringim, Windsor Crossing Community Church

Bill Swaringim is the Technical Director for Windsor Crossing Community Church in Chesterfield, Missouri. Bill’s gifting is as much about the people as it is about the technology. His gift for building teams and creating connection make him a gifted technical director.
