Last year in this post I shared with you my thoughts about the importance of having a good website for your church. Here’s an excerpt:
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 If your site is filled with irrelevant or outdated information, you’ll leave a lot of people with the impression that your church is irrelevant or outdated.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?
I’m pleased to be able to share today a slice of fresh-baked bread – check out our new website:
We went with FaithHighway in putting this together. There are still a couple of kinks to work out, but overall I am pleased with their work.
excellent website, but that may be that i’m partial to blues, only improvement / addition i would suggest is to add older members to the mix, they’re not as likely to be surfing the web (although that is changing, more rapidly than we might think) but even young adults and college students (more likely to be checking out the church’s website) need to know they are a part of a family, just my thoughts, great job!
We likely will add some pictures of older church members here and there as we go along since they do represent a segment of our congregation. We did, however, intentionally target the look and feel of this website at college students, young singles, and young families.
Good look. Making it look inviting to the 20-30 age group is a wise decision.
I like it…I’ll send you an email, as I have some questions (nothing bad) you may not want to answer on your blog about your website development as I look to find a new website for the Randolph Church of Christ.
Sure thing – email@example.com
Site looks good. Nice Work!
