This Month: All About Church Websites

This Month: All About Church Websites

Posted April 30, 2018 by Bryan Haley

One of my favorite things to do is to talk with churches and help them solve problems. Often, the same general issues arise as I speak with churches. Church communicators and leaders struggle with how to be more effective in how they’re communicating. They wrestle with being efficient in their work and with having limited budgets. They desire to improve, but their time for learning is limited because they’re too busy maintaining to step away and learn anything new in-depth.

This month we’re going to focus all of our resources around one topic that seems to come up more often than most others. Church websites. Because churches are so often overwhelmed by their most pressing and recurring communications tasks (e.g. daily emails, social media posts, bulletins!), their church website often falls by the wayside. And it’s no surprise because website development and maintenance are often far outside of the expertise of most staff.

But the prospect of building or revamping your church website doesn’t have to be overwhelming. All throughout May, we’re going to feature articles to help your church create a website that meets the needs of your church and community. We’ll recommend new resources and tools as well. Here are some of the resources we’ll be publishing this month:

  • How to post sermons online
  • Creating a mobile-friendly, or mobile-first, website
  • Design trends
  • What needs to be on your church website
  • How to identify your website audience
  • Webinar on creating a website for your church
  • Top platforms/Content Management Systems for churches

With a variety of articles, webinars, and other resources, my hope is that by the end of the month, you’ll have a deeper understanding of the website development process, some new tools, and a renewed vision for your church’s website.
