Jesus, Light it Up

David Little from Elevate Church in Morton, Illinois brings us this great design featuring a lit up Jesus sign.

To create this set they used 2’2 Coroplast panels affixed to each other with 1 1/2″ binder rings. The center section was rigged to a pulley system to raise up during worship to expose the drummer. The textured columns on the sides were made from aluminum screen material from Lowe’s – crinkled then lit with Chauvet Color Strips.

They had 3 WXGA projectors for the 3 screens – Epson EX7210’s 2600 lumens for about $500 each. The moving light fixtures in the picture were Chauvet Intimidator 250’s. They ran about $800 a fixture.

The stage was painted blue, with a metallic overlay, then clear coated with water based polyurethane. All water/latex based paints were used to reduce smell and dry time.

The “Jesus sign” is made from 4/4 poplar and had 2 and 3 foot t8 fluorescent light fixtures mounted to it. They had it hooked up to a cheap electric winch from Harbor Freight tools. They spent a total of about $650 for the whole element and got the idea from a Hillsong conference opener.
