Default Mic placement challenge

I'm looking for ideas on how best to place microphones in my situation. All I've got to work with is two big condenser mics. I need to mic up the setup pictured below. Strangely enough, I'm not loud enough for church. We play from the balcony, and everyone else is running through the sound system, so I end up getting lost behind the PA. Any suggestions?

X/Y Coincident, pointing down directly over the back of the bass drum - about three feet above your head. That should do it nicely.

When I showed up to practice, the guitar player/ sound man had the mics set up at the same height as my hats and ride. One was kinda mid-way between my hats/snare/kick and the other was a couple inches in front of my kick, in line with my ride. Sounds great. When I get a chance, I'll play around with setting them up high, but they will do for now. Nice being able to hear my brush playing. I love playing the brushes and the piano player really likes them too, so it's nice that everyone else will be able to hear them now.
