Founded in the early 1980s, CCF (Christ’s Commission Fellowship) in Manila, Philippines, has grown from a 40-member evangelistic Bible study group to a true mega-church with membership in the tens of thousands and numerous satellites across the globe.
Last year, the church opened the doors to its new world headquarters, CCF Worship and Training Center, a 750,000-square-foot facility that’s home to offices and a school, a youth and sports center, a 10,000-seat chapel, and a 2,000-seat overflow hall.
Audio for the huge chapel space was designed in part by Vance Breshears of the San Diego, CA offices of Acoustic Dimensions, and installed by Manila-based Joint Venture Sound, Light, and Entertainment Concepts.
The main system utilizes 36 Renkus-Heinz STLA/9R line array loudspeakers, with front fill provided by 40 Sygma Series SG81-2R compact 8-inch two-way loudspeakers. A dozen DR18-2R dual 18-inch subwoofers deliver low-frequency reinforcement.
The smaller (relatively speaking) 2,000-seat overflow hall is covered by 16 R-H CF101LA-52R compact modular point source line array speakers, with 26 more SG81-2R cabinets covering front fill. Four DR18-2R subs supply the low end in the room.
“The new CCF church headquarters is a breathtakingly beautiful architectural space, and Renkus-Heinz is proud to have been selected to provide the sound for their new, state-of-the-art chapels,” states R-H senior VP Ralph Heinz, who assisted engineer KK Tan in commissioning the system.
