So I’m looking into getting a website designed within the next year.
Our home on the web here in San Francisco needs to be top-drawer – let’s break it down …
I googled “Church of Christ” and found a few examples of what I DON’T want (no offense :p):
Here are a few examples of what I DO want:
It is a fact that most people today will visit a church’s website before they’ll attend an actual church service – especially in a city when you’re working with today’s middle class. It’s not enough to have a website just to have a website. If your site is sub-par, you’ll leave a lot of people with the impression that your church is sub-par. If your site is filled with irrelevant or outdated information, you’ll leave a lot of people with the impression that your church is irrelevant or outdated.
Think of your church’s website as the first smell that hits a guest’s nostrils when they walk into your living room. Is yours fresh-baked bread, or did somebody step in something?
Having a site could do more harm than good, or it could be something that’s awesomely beneficial to your ministry. I prefer the latter.
Any suggested resources for me?
UPDATE: Check out the website I had designed for Lake Merced Church: www.lakemercedchurch.com
I went with FaithHighway, and they did a great job designing according to my specifications.
