Death Let Go. Jesus Won’t. The cross. This is the single point in history upon which our faith rests. The fact that Jesus sacrificed Himself and conquered death is what gives us hope and purpose. This year at Riv, Easter was a standalone service, so there was no need for our set design to fit […]
Philippians. It’s a book full of contradiction. Paul is in prison yet is writing of joy, contentment, and gladness over and over again. For this set we wanted to have this contradiction play out on stage in a visual way. The main contrast in this design comes from an order and chaos juxtaposition. We took […]
For our Christmas series this year, we decided to go with a wintry/Christmasy set rather than literal set tying to the topics being taught. We wanted to maintain the Christmas feel with this set while also pushing the visual concept of a Christmas tree. On the stage we have two variations of a geometric tree. […]
What we believe matters. What we believe about God matters most. With the launch of Riv’s fourth venue, we decided it was high time to build up our Set Design Team to include more than just the usual three guys. We put out an ask for volunteers to join the team and the response was […]

Coarse thread screws into the back of the structure hold the plywood on and finishing nails attach the three assembled sections to […]
Red Letter Ending, a series at Riverview April, 2011. This is the set for our Easter series in 2011. The structure against the wall is an assembled product from MIO called the Nomad System. The Two smaller crosses on the floor are built with a combination of steel framing track and wood 2×4. The larger […]
The Joy Paradox, a series at Riverview March, 2011. Our Creative Director, Kristie, designed a custom image for the background projection, we did not do a physical build. I must note, as I have previously, that she creates the projection which integrates with the sets for each series that we do.
The Main Thing, a series at Riverview February, 2011. Playing on the series title “The Main Thing” we decided to build a theater marquee. The prop is a 15ft x 10ft construction using steel stud framing with a recessed channel of 1/2in MDF and the primary screen area is hardboard. The top detail is 1/2in […]
