Welcome to the Connected Church News!
This news item is part of the weekly top 5 news bulletin (from Week 1, Oct 2023) specially packaged for leaders of Nonprofits, Churches, and Faith-based Social Ventures.
A new event venue called Sphere opened up in Las Vegas last week, raising the standards for live events and shows. I wanted to bring this to your attention because I know many of you churches and non profits are in the live event space. Every church service is like a live event. So it’s important for you to understand when a big media shift happens in the way live shows are conducted. This venue is the world’s largest spherical structure, 366 feet tall and516 feet wide. It has the world’s highest and the largest resolution LED screen with more than 250 million video pixels. So it is quite an amazing LED screen that just wraps around the entire event venue. You can basically project anything you want. I will link to the website which has some incredible pictures. Check out these details. Maybe some of you are inspired to create a structure like this for your church or ministry.
