The C3 Church in Clayton, NC was growing but their audio gear was aging.

One thing was clear: the audio systems needed to evolve from analog to digital so their dynamic musical performances could continue to captivate the congregation.

The Digital World Awaits

Morris began the relationship with C3 Church simply as advisors. Over the course of a year, they sent several board demos and equipment quotes to the church before C3 enthusiastically chose the DiGiCo SD-10, along with the KLANG system,  which allows for more dynamic, distraction-free communication and ministry at C3.

Troy Payne, Production Manager at C3 said it boiled down to 3 things: quality, user interface, and scalability. The DiGiCo SD series of consoles has proven itself to be one of the best for all types of live production. “The user interface is well laid out and easy to set up for a team of volunteers to operate comfortably,” he says.


Morris complimented the console upgrade with three SD racks with 56 inputs each, operating at a 192 kHZ sampling rate. This adds endless possibilities for musicians and vocalists performing at any of C3’s four services. The personal monitoring systems give increased control to the church’s talented artists and musicians. The SD series consoles range from the rack-mounted SD11 all the way up to the SD7. “As we grow, the plan is to have all venues using an SD console for continuity and ease of training,” Payne says of the multi-venue church campus.

It’s Personal

Morris Integration values personal relationships. Every church, every client is unique so Morris strives to understand who they are, what is important to them, and what they need to thrive. C3’s aging technology created distraction and frustration for the staff and congregation. Philip Hagood, Morris Integration General Manager, believes THE choice to take the time on the front end to make sure C3 had the right products resulted in the outcome…total satisfaction.
