Make a big impact for less than $500
"We've looked everywhere. Someone must have 'picked up' the wireless microphone." Not the words I wanted to hear five minutes before the service.
Our church hosted the Judson University choir on Sunday. The platform had been cleared, and everything was set up the night before, except our lone handheld wireless microphone. That's the microphone that the choir director requested to allow him the freedom to speak from different places.
