Host a 2015-2016 Fulltime team

We are planning our next year of fulltime ministry and we would love for that to include sending a team your way!

 

We would love to partner with you and serve your organization by providing a program of music, testimony and drama built upon the foundation of the Gospel.  Teams are available for one-day, weekend, or multi-day ministry opportunities including:

 

Church services

Chapel times

Youth groups

Outreach events

Adult or Youth retreats

Worship nights

Campus ministry/fellowship meetings

Small group worship & sharing

Community organizations

Worship teams

Missions conferences

Other ministry/events

 

Consider booking a CTI team for your upcoming ministry calendar!  Booking now provides the most flexible options for when a team will be in your area.

 

Have some questions first?  Gretchen would be happy to answer those and send you some more information on utilizing a team.  E-mail Gretchen or call our office.  We look forward to serving you!

Speaker Replacement Project Update

We've received over $6,300 towards our speaker replacement project so far, which is enough to complete the first phase of the project!

With these funds, we've purchased 2 subwoofers and 4 main speakers.  Each of our fulltime teams will begin using 2 of the new mains and 1 subwoofer starting with their upcoming Spring tour.  Audiences can look forward to a much gentler / less "harsh" sound, broader frequency spectrum, and lower visual impact from the new systems.  Thank you to everyone who has helped make this possible!  

We're working on the second phase of the project now, which we hope will allow us to purchase two more subwoofers to complete each team's system in time for the Fall touring season.  The total cost of the second phase will be about $2,800, and we've got about $2,500 to go.

Speaker Replacement Project

You are invited to help with a specific funding need for CTI:
 
Our stateside main speakers are tired.  They've each seen about 150,000 trailer miles and their share of some 3,000 performances.  They've helped us through 8 summers as training systems and have endured 9 years of fulltime team rehearsals.  Not bad for their second life (they were donated to us in 2006 having previously been used for an unknown amount of time.)  But it is time for us to retire them and treat our U.S. audiences to the smoother sound (and gentler aesthetic impact) of newer technology.
 
We are planning to replace our 4 Mackie 1530z speakers (which don't look nearly as nice as the picture below at this point) with QSC K12 mains and KW181 subwoofers:

The total cost for this upgrade will be about $9,000. 
 
An anonymous donor has put up $4,000 in matching funds towards this project, which means we only need to raise about half of the cost.  But we still need $4,000 in contributions to claim the $4,000 in matching funds!
 
If you'd like to contribute to this project, you can do so online, or by sending a check to our office with the note "Speaker Project."  And consider passing this along to a friend who might share an interest in this kind of a project.
 
Thanks for considering this - we hope you get to hear these speakers in person at a CTI event sometime soon!
