MONTREAL and CHICAGO -- Sept. 20, 2012 -- Haivision announced today that it has been honored with a WFX Solomon Award at WFX 2012 for its Internet streaming ministry project at the International House of Prayer (IHOP) in Kansas City. The WFX Solomon Awards recognize excellence in the creation of outstanding and meaningful projects reflecting the vision, goals, and aspirations of churches.
