You can get dimensionality just fine without more fixtures. The goal is to get the offset for each lighting area at as close as possible to 45 degrees. The vertical level of the lights makes no difference as far as flattening the subject. All that really matters in that respect is horizontal split off of center (center being the center of the area).
Where vertical angle comes into effect is in the eyes and on the background. Too high and you get "raccoon eyes" (black holes where the eyes should be), too low and you get splash all over the back wall.
What you do get without back or top light is that on video your subject might appear to "merge" with the background instead of standing out from it. Those huge windows should prevent that though.
Have you thought about moving your lighting position forward and using 19 degree or 26 degree fixtures (which are cheaper than 10 degree units)?
I would dump the 24 channel controller and look at Chamsys MagicQ and an Enttec USB dongle on a good, stable PC. This solution (sans PC) will only run you about $125 and provides infinate expandability, rather than the limiting of 24 channels, which most churches outgrow very quickly.
