The Summit Crew. Our team consists of former pastors, technical leaders, and volunteers. We partner with architects, engineers, and designers to help local churches leverage technology to achieve their vision.

Summit began its journey as a simple bicycle assembly business (Summit Assembly) and quickly transformed into a pro audio installation firm after Chris Rayburn and his bike assembly crew agreed to install 600 ceiling speakers in an office building. Since that first install, Summit has grown into a full-service Audio, Video, and Lighting firm focused on delivering the most engaging worship environments for the local Church.



Sometimes, when you set out on a journey, you don’t exactly know where you’ll find yourself in the end. When I started Summit 24 years ago, I never could have imagined where it would go and where it would take me. The impact on church communities across America that Summit has made will never cease to amaze me. Building Summit to what it has become in the last few decades fills me with hope and excitement for what the next 20 years will bring for the Summit team.

Thank you for being a part of this journey.
-Chris Rayburn
