Chuck posted back in August regarding the launch of our first satellite campus, Resurrection West (affectionately known as “Rez West”). The staff of Rez West includes a campus pastor, campus associate pastor, operations director, children’s director, music people, etc. – 7 or 8 people altogether. They have been officing in a temporary space on the central campus since June.
Meanwhile, our Facilities folks found some space for lease near the junior high school where Rez West worships. For the last couple of months they have been working on tenant finish to turn it into usable office space plus a large general purpose meeting room and a garage for the A/V equipment trailer. Last week, while the tenant finish was nearing completion, it was our turn to come in and start assembling the technology: phone system, voice mail, Internet connection, firewall, network switch, file and print server, printers, and computers.
Everything but the printers and computers are being installed into one cabinet. Here’s Ian terminating the voice station wires into the patch panel (the guy on the right is our new desktop support guy, Jeremy, who doesn’t even start until November 13 but came out to help):
