Issue At Hand   The JKUATCU has had challenges with our sound system in the recent past due to the following reasons:

  • The current sound system is worn out due to continuous use over time (minimum of six times per week) since 2005
  • We have had an increase in population, hence changing number of Sunday services from one to three.
  • We have annual missions which use our entire sound system.
  • Frequent movement of the equipment has increased wearing out

Due to this, difficulties have been experienced during the fellowships and meetings. There have also been challenges when it comes to outdoor ministry during the annual missions.   We therefore saw it prudent to come up with sound project aimed at doing an overhaul of the entire sound system at a cost of 1.5 million by April next year (2017). So far we have been able to raise 1.06 million.   Currently, to enable the normal running of the Christian Union pertaining to sound, the Evangelistic Teams instruments are usually borrowed. For major events, however, the Union has had to hire instruments from different organizations which is very costly.   Sound Project   From the critical analysis of the current sound equipment, it is evident that there was a need to do an overhaul of the whole sound system. The sound project was formulated to cover the whole process of budgeting and ways of raising money towards funding the project.   Project Budget   After serious deliberations, a target of 1.5 million was projected as the total amount for the budget.Various Sound Committees over the period of time have devised ways of raising the amount. Progress   So far we have raised 1.06 million and we really thank God for mercifully helping us raise this amount though it has not yet hit the target. After deliberation it was seen fit to import the Public Address and then get the backside instruments locally. This is done with the advice of lawyers to ensure a legitimate and efficient process.   We really need a new sound system before we go for annual mission in April 2017.   Recommendation   This is our plea to all brethren in the Lord: 2 Corinthians 8:7 – But as you excel in everything – faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all earnestness, and in our love for you – see that you excel in this grace also.   Current state of our equipment   The information in this table was obtained after evaluation the sound system and describes the current condition of our equipment.
