My name is Paul L.
Garner and I am president and owner of CSI: Christian
Installations. I would like
to thank you for allowing me to introduce
both myself and my company.
my experience spans
over thirty five years in the music industry. I started out playing at
the age of twelve and played professionally with local and touring acts
for many years. Over the years,
I found that I truly
enjoyed mixing and
producing. So at the midpoint
in my professional music career, I left
the stage for front-of-house productions (FOH). With my own touring
sound company, I have worked with many renowned artists and groups
including Sam & Dave, Rare Earth, Smokey Robinson, Spyro Gyra
and many more.
years of being
“in and out” of churches trying to find myself, I
truly found Christ in my thirties. I left the nightlife and everything
about it for a new career in the construction industry. I started out
in the electrical trade working my way through apprenticeship and
towards a three year journeyman program to become a master electrician.
I started my own electrical firm in Tampa where I provided electrical
construction and services throughout the community. In the
1990’s I merged with two former business associates and
formed one of the Tampa Bay area’s largest electrical
companies. While working in this industry, I began volunteering at
local churches providing sound engineering/mixing for
years later, I expanded
my knowledge in the construction industry and became a division manager
for a Tampa based general contractor. After one year, I decided to take
that knowledge and combine it with a “Service
Attitude” and form a new company within the construction
industry that would put “Service” first. With that
commitment in mind, Millennium One was born. After years of providing
construction services to the southeastern states, which I am still
involved in, I’m now also a part of FishHawk Fellowship
Church’s Worship Praise Team.
“Service” commitment still planted firmly in my
life, I opened CSI as a way to help other Houses of Worship with their
audio and video needs. The purpose of CSI is to provide the best audio
design, video design and engineering solutions available while
remembering that it’s all for the glory of God. While many
churches purchase systems from the internet or
“supermarket” type stores, they quickly discover
that the money they thought they saved is far surpassed by the
additional items needed to make the system work in their situation
and/or un-planned technical help required for the proper installation.
And many times they find out that they simply purchased the wrong
equipment for their needs.
CSI, we like to start our
relationship with you with a personal meeting. At this meeting, we will
help guide you through the critical step of establishing a proper pro
forma to thoroughly and accurately assess your needs. Once your needs
are established, we will discuss some of the possible limiting and
contributory factors such as budget, physical building constraints,
future expansion, etc. We will then make suggestions that will be as
truthful and honest as can be to provide you with a system that will
provide years of trouble free service. We have on-staff
drafting/engineering capabilities along with leasing and financing
options to provide truly complete packages.
sincerely hope that you will
give us the opportunity to provide you and your organization with our
“Service above Self” dedication. We will always
strive to provide outstanding service, products and design at the best
