The First Baptist's media department, headed by Rev. Britt Dillard, Minister of Media, and his staff, oversees the church's live television production, audio productions, print media and public relations. The weekly broadcast over WSPA-TV, the CBS affiliate in Spartanburg, is made possible through the efforts of almost 80 volunteers, who are trained by the FBS media department. Technical positions, including directing, switching, graphics, FOH, broadcast audio and telephone ministries, are all manned by proficient volunteers. We'll have more about this later.
"We went to the digital world because of the flexibility it gave us," declared Dillard.
Our goal is to find low-end broadcast rather than high-end consumer gear because we've gotten so much more reliability," said Dillard. Related, he noted that FPS Senior Pastor Wilton has a key phrase "that he drives into our hearts in all situations like this: 'We want to pursue excellence but not extravagance'."
'Sweet Spot Of Service'
Not by the collection plate alone does a church survive. There's also stewardship. "Everybody must find their place of service," said Dillard. "We call it the 'sweet spot of service.' That service might be coaching a basketball team, serving in the soup kitchen and running the camera for the Sunday morning broadcast. It's about your gifts. And there's quite a diverse array of technical media volunteers. Dillard explained that, if you'd walk into the video booth, the person running the robotic camera is a customer service rep for Verizon Wireless.
We previously introduced the church's Minister of Media, Britt Dillard. He uses his strong radio and TV broadcast background for many duties within the church. Among the tasks: He's a show host at FBS-owned HangarRadioZ 104.1 FM in Spartanburg, a low-power station serving the region with a youth-oriented, contemporary format.
Dillard gave some highlights of the install. But stay tuned. After this electronic journey, we'll speak with project consultants and integrators. "We're very happy with Yamaha mixers. They've been very good to us," Dillard said. Yamahas were used in all mix positions.
Dillard said that the Snell & Wilcox Kahuna 4ME has been a "really good switcher with two work surfaces [panels].
According to Dillard, the Harris Nexio server has given some grand flexibility.
Dillard acknowledged that Blue Hat Design and System Design Engineer Mat Hathaway "did a terrific job and they have a real attunement to our ministry, which is different than broadcast.
Prior to the design, we had established with Britt to use an HD projector with a brightness level of approximately 18,000 lumens.

Britt Dillard, the GM, asked me off the cuff, if I'd be interested in "doing some radio? I presented my list of excuses; my Wife, our toddling son, and our start-up small business, but promised to pray it over. We did and in a few weeks I began hosting a weekly "Hard Music" show. The Zrevolution still airs each week, with my former co-host Phoenix carrying on the mantel. As time progressed the Z Music Director position opened up. Britt again asked if I'd be interested, and here I am.
The minister of Media at FBS, Britt Dillard, is no stranger to youth and media ministry focus. Minister of Media since 1983, Britt also founded the Sound of Light radio show in 1977 and later partnered with WLFJ 89.3 His Radio to reach out to teens and young adults with a weekly Christian Hit Radio show. As an advisory board member at His Radio, Britt continued to be host of the Sound of Light until he donated that brand to Crossover Ministries.

Britt Dillard, founder and host of The Sound of Light, was a senior in high school in 1977 when he and several friends approached local radio station WORD about airing a show early Sunday mornings featuring contemporary Christian music.
"The whole idea is that God is interested in every part of our life and for most of us music is more of a constant throughout our day that just about anything else," said Dillard."If you talk to students and teenagers, if they had to give up a meal or give up their music, they'd give up a meal anytime."
The show expanded and grew to a four-hour Sunday night program and eventually moved to WSPA radio in Spartanburg.When WLFJ-FM went on the air in 1983, The Sound of Light moved again."Our passion was to be in the secular marketplace with the Gospel, and so we were pretty convinced that was where it needed to be," said Dillard.
Dillard agreed to stay on as host, but syndication and nationwide exposure was the responsibility of Eason and Crossover Ministries.
