Your Ultimate DIY Guide To Mobile Church Equipment

It doesn’t have to cost you 25 grand or more to put together a mobile church setup. It just takes knowing what equipment you need and where to get it.

So if you are so inclined, go for it. Some people are pleased with them. However for me, that type of money was never available, and even if it were, I would want to spend it on outreach and investing in the new church rather than in shiny equipment.

Building Your Own Mobile Church Set Up

For me, and if you follow this guide, it makes a whole lot more sense to develop my mobile church package myself. You will save money. You will not be purchasing the equipment you do not need. You will understand how everything fits together. That makes a whole lot more sense to me.

So let’s take a journey and together we will set up a portable church equipment plan for you that will help you put together all the equipment you will need to start doing what God has called you to do, which is expanding His kingdom with your church

Portable Church Action Plan

The first thing you need to do is think through your equipment needs and how that equipment affects different parts of your set up and tear down process. You would be well advised to stay away from just putting any old system together and hunting down used equipment on Craigslist. It may be cheaper, but it will not be sustainable. It will cause more headaches than it is worth.


The first thing you need to consider is making things as easy as possible for your volunteers. Most of the people who will volunteer to help set up and tear down your church equipment will not be experienced in doing so.

That means you have to keep it as simple as possible. The more equipment, connections, and steps they have to take in making everything work, places a burden on your volunteers.

That is why I am going to recommend things that place ease of setup over the highest quality or latest fad. The last thing you want is to become the only volunteer that sets up the church every Sunday because the job is too complicated for an average person.

Going Wireless

The first thing I am going to recommend is that you cut the cables wherever you can. One of the most time consuming and confusing things to set up a mobile church is running all the cables.

Between all the mic cables, cables running to the soundboard, cables running from the soundboard to the power amp, and the cables running from the power amp to the speakers, and then the cables from your computers to your video projector or flat screen monitors. Cable hook up is a pain.

Eliminate all that time and frustration by going wireless. I will show you how further down in this article.

Storage And Transportation

Another consideration is how and where you are going to store all your equipment. If you have on-site storage, then your needs will be different than if you have to pack up all your gear and store it someplace else.
