Equipment Rental

Our knowledgeable and experienced staff will help you select the gear that fits your unique event needs and budget, and provide creative solutions to build systems that work for you. We feature the latest digital consoles, line arrays, moving lights, ground-based and flown rigging systems, live video equipment, and more to enhance any message, engage any audience, and execute an event of any size with excellence. We obsess over the maintenance of our gear- we diligently clean, test, and retest production equipment to ensure it looks and performs as new when you rent it.

A/V/L Support + Staffing

We provide professional operators and careful craftsmen for each part of your event. Our system technicians are skilled in using technology to meet the goals and overcome any challenges of your next event. We are creative problem-solvers who delight in saying “yes.” We are about supporting ministry first–and if that means stacking chairs, well stack chairs. You will find our team courteous, creative, and willing to go the extra mile to help bring your vision to life.


If you’re planning an event–large or small–consider bringing Access Audio on board to assist with the production details. We’ll walk alongside you through all the little specifics that add up to an unforgettable show, an engaging presentation, or an inspiring worship service. We can introduce you to our time-tested partners in audio, lighting, video, rigging, and special effects and bring all of these services together to work for you. From tight budgets and confusing riders to training volunteer staff, we’re glad to offer our help in whatever way supports you best.

Equipment Sales

Whether you’re buying a replacement cable or outfitting an entire church, we’re here to help. We’ll take the time to understand your needs, your existing gear, and any problems you might be having. Then, our staff will work with you to meet those needs. We will work within any budget, but we will never sell or recommend junk, and we don’t disappear after the sale either. Need help setting things up? We’ll be there. Volunteers need training on the new console? We’ll meet with them. Gear breaks one day out of warranty? We’ll go to bat for you.


Access Audio is a team of people who are in this for people. Our courteous and experienced craftsmen excel at thinking critically and creatively about design and function within A/V/L production. We hold ourselves to a standard of excellence, servanthood, humility, and problem-solving.
