AVL Ministry

The AVL Ministry contributes to Countryside’s ministry of the gospel through live audio and video production of our worship services. This benefits our local congregation, and those who worship with us remotely via our live video stream. We have a wide array of service opportunities and provide training to help volunteers develop and refine their skills.

Our mission is to enhance the proclamation of the Gospel message in a clear and non-distracting way to the local congregation as well as to the world by amplifying the Word of God as taught and sung through the use of high-quality production methods.
