Arguably, the single most important goal of any worship service is to communicate the message. What if the congregation couldn’t understand the words of that amazing sermon due to excessive echo? What if they aren’t moved by the music because they are distracted by how harsh or loud the room sounds? In many churches, the acoustical environment can be the difference between someone receiving the message or leaving unfulfilled.  Room acoustics can either assist you with communicating the message or become an obstacle.
