Van Buren First Assembly of God

Van Buren First Assembly of God

The Van Buren First Assembly of God (VBFA), located in Van Buren, Arkansas, United States, is currently the second largest Assemblies of God church in Arkansas. With a membership of over 1,000 and an average Sunday attendance of more than 3,000, it continues to grow predominantly in the Northwest part of the state. The church is also known for its state wide television broadcast and as being the first Assembly of God church to broadcast every service live over the Internet. The church is more than 100 years old, and the current pastor, Bobby L. Johnson, has pastored the church since 1980.

Technology Features

The church is in the process of building a new state of the art sanctuary. Their media ministry is second to none in the state. The church offices are on a newly installed gigabite network consisting of several servers and dual-core workstations as well as several thin clients, making many of the church's operating duties incredibly efficient. Designed by Omrinet, Inc (a technology company located in Van Buren, Arkansas) the church continues to add new technology such as 20 new 50" plasma monitors rather than typical projectors seen in modern churches due to their extreme brightness and clarity. Additionally the church is installing a two-sided 60sf LED outdoor screen that will display its services live for passers-by as well as advertising events and activities. The 16 million color screen, capable of live video, is one of the state's first, especially for this type of application. All video and audio post production is also done in-house using a variety of software suites and platforms such as Apple's Logic for audio post and Adobe's Premier Pro, Avid HD Suite, and Apple's FinalCut Pro for video production.
