The WAVE Story

What's with the waves, bro?

Wave Saturday Service Edits-73.jpg

In 2005, two friends set out to equip churches with better sounding rooms. Their offerings grew with their passion, and WAVE was born. 

What separated WAVE from others then is the same thing that sets our work above and beyond now: customization.

 

We believe that every church's environment should be as authentic as their mission.

 

This is why we design and deliver customized solutions, not just gear. Every project is as unique as the vision and mission of our client. 

We create innovative spaces for you to create powerful experiences for others.

If you ever meet our founders, it won't take long to guess which one spent his teens in a surf shop. While only a few of us surf now, we all share the coastline vibe he passed on: relaxed and relational.

 

We've found a little time together can go a long way in our custom work. We get to know your culture, understand your needs, find solutions within your budget, and support you even after commissioning. 

This culture unites us as storytellers who design and deliver innovative worship facilities. While our team is made of designers, engineers, installers, and project managers, our passion is all the same: bringing your ministry to life.
