ATLANTA, GA—Discovery Church in Atlanta has come up with an innovative way to get the worship band onto the stage during the pastor's closing prayer: a transporter.
Once thought to be the stuff of science fiction, the transporter is now a reality, thanks to the ingenious tech guys at Discovery. The team is always looking for ways to make their services smoother. The worship band has to creep up onstage while the pastor prays, running the risk of the congregation seeing them. But now, they can warp in instantly.
"Beam me up, sound guy," worship leader James Archer said Sunday as he and his team prepared to warp onstage.
"I can do zat!" the sound guy, an immigrant from Russia, said as he prepared to teleport the whole worship band onto the stage while the pastor prayed.
Unfortunately, the transporter's trademark sound alerts the congregation as the worship band warps to their position. The tech guys are still looking for a quieter solution.
