When Experience Matters.

Experience Matters

The vision of WAVE is to design and deliver projects that enhance the unique story each church is trying to tell. WAVE operates under the understanding that God is calling each church to use their unique personality to reach the world.  The church is called to connect with the unconnected. WAVE’s calling is to maximize that connection.

We Believe Our Clients Are Partners

We see every church we work with as a partner in ministry. Much different than a sub-contractor, WAVE is most often hired because of our ministry related work in some of the most dynamic churches in the country. Because of the shared vision and collaborative design strategies we engage in, WAVE is honored to be a strategic ministry partner with the church. Our calling is to come along side you and help you achieve your calling.

How We Can Help

Our Strategy

Every project needs proper planning to be fully executed. We leverage our expertise and help guide our clients through a design process to accurately target needs, goals and objectives. It is never about being modern or hip, it is always about delivering an authentic experience, which is unique to each client, that utilizes current application.

Brand Experience & Environmental Storytelling

Our creative department is comprised of highly skilled story strategists, who are devoted to creating innovative ways to tell your church’s story in each and every environment used for ministry.

For the first time in organizational development, there is a way to combine your STORY, SYSTEMS & STAFFING into the same process. Simply put, we are able to help you think through your Guest Experience from the moment someone opens their car door, to the moment they close their car door; not just “the main event”.

Burn-In & Custom Shop

Our development team takes great pride in making sure your products are properly burned-in and tested and your project is laid out meticulously. Each piece spends time in WAVE’s burn-in room before it ever hits your project site. Detail is at the front of their priorities all the way down to the custom rack plates and floor boxes. If your project needs it, our team will create a custom application for you.

Our goal is for you to see and feel the amount of detail and care that has been put in to every piece of equipment we touch. Your ministry is our priority.

  • Custom Rack Layout
  • Laser Engraved Faceplates
  • Digital CNC cutting for precision fit & finish
  • Racks Prebuilt in Burn-In Room

“The Mobile Church team at WAVE exceeded our dreams, I never thought we could start with this quality of environment on day one. Thanks to WAVE, we were able to create the environment of a cutting edge big budget church while paying a price a church plant could swallow.”

David Jones
Lead Pastor, Relentless Church

SURFER

WAVE’s highest priorities have always centered around service and design. Although WAVE and its offerings have grown, those two priorities have not changed.   In a church culture where the use of technology is growing faster than the budget for staff to support it, there must be a process in place that gives both staff and volunteers the confidence to believe that they aren’t in this alone.

Introducing SURFER.  SURFER is WAVE’s remote access and system monitoring network. SURFER gives both clients and the WAVE – Technical Services Team the advantage of analyzing all aspects of IP addressable technology for performance, connectivity, and system changes from any location.    The SURFER network combined with WAVE’s FLEX product line will allow for peace of mind, real time diagnostics and rapid response to technical issues.    The Pastoral staff should not need to worry about technical systems operation while creating an unforgettable experience for someone to connect with God. SURFER was created so you can do what you do best and avoid worrying about technical problems.

Have Additional Questions?

How many current full time employees do you have?

What licenses are held by full time employees that are applicable in the state of Massachusetts?

Are there any licenses or certifications you'd need to apply for in Massachusetts to be able to effectively cover the scope of our project?

Our field teams hold Low Voltage licenses in many states.  Should that be necessary, we will apply for reciprocity in MA.

How does your model differ for integration projects based on church size or budget?

Our process is the same no matter the size or budget of our clients. From small church plants, to multi-site mega churches, we approach each client with the same respect and attention they deserve.

Each project has a unique application based on your story, ministry model, budget, and individual priorities. We have created strong on-going relationships with over 600 brands that allow us to choose the appropriate components that apply to your project. This assures that no matter your size or budget, we have a custom solution for you that achieves your priorities and maintains our high level of expectation of the performance of your entire system.

What percentage of your business is with churches of 2,000 people or less?

Approximately 40% of our current projects in their build phase are with churches of 2,000 or less.

What differentiates WAVE from other companies like Clark and Summit?

WAVE prides itself on finding ways to creatively and cost effectively tell the individual story that God is breathing into you. Metaphorically speaking, we are as interested in the picture you are painting, as we are with the amount of colors and brushes you have in your paint palette. This has not been the experience customers have had with many of our competitors.

In order to achieve this goal, WAVE not only employs degreed engineers and designers for their projects, but also employs a team of Creatives with years of experience leading ministries at some of the fastest growing churches in the country. This helps our team get a complete contextual picture of what God is doing in your church and how to strategically communicate that with our design. Simply put, we get more excited about the ministry capabilities of the finished product than we do the quality of the “show” on Sunday.

Clients that have moved to WAVE from other companies have come to us with experiences that seem to speak to the contrary of what we value. Below is a link to a testimonial of a church who moved from an aforementioned competitor to WAVE. This story does a great job in 3 minutes explaining why they moved from their previous firm and to WAVE.
