SO CHURCHES CAN FOCUS ON MINISTRY
WHY YOUR WEBSITE MATTERS
17 million adults who don’t attend church visited a church website in the last year.
Visited a church website in the last 30 days alone.
The majority of people spend less than one minute on any website.
What do people think about when they visit your website?
Because they are visiting and they are thinking something.
If it’s true that for some people interacting with another Christian will be the only Bible they ever read, what about the 12% of your community who are visiting church websites? Are they finding answers to their questions, help for their situations, and communities of faith that will welcome them into their fellowship? Or are they finding something else?
Maybe the better question is what do our websites tell the world around us about our God and do they reflect His heart and intention for them?
I believe that a church website can either be a great tool to use to help welcome those God is drawing to Himself, or it can be an obstacle.
Which one do you want your website to be?

Frequently asked questions
That depends. Are you happy with your site and the results it’s getting you? If so, then you might not have anything to worry about. But if you haven’t updated your website in a few years, it may be operating on outdated code or technology, let alone have a potentially stale and antiquated feel. You might not think that’s a big deal, but most people decide in a few seconds whether to keep reading or to run away! And if it’s not optimized for mobile devices, you’re automatically missing out on at least 50% of the potential website visitors you could be reaching instead.
Everyone has website hosting. Think of it this way: your website is your house, and your hosting is your address. Now some people host with a cheaper service to save money, which is fine until something breaks. Case in point, I met a guy last night in construction whose site has been down now for four months and can’t get any help from a support team. Guess which option he went with for hosting? That’s right, the cheap guys. I myself had an issue where my site went down here recently, and all it took was a quick chat with my support team and it was back up in less than five minutes. That’s the difference and why it’s important to consider your website hosting needs.
Not hard at all. In fact its so easy that even a busy Pastor with no coding skills can do it. Imagine what a trained staff person or volunteer could do! Better yet, it will even be impossible to break and mess up things on other parts of the site. Everything has been accounted for and we ensure you have a great looking site that is always updated.
Of course you can. But the problem with do-it-yourself stuff is you have to do it yourself. We take the pain and guesswork away so you can focus on what only you can do – the work of ministry with and for your people in your community.
