How your church website looks on a phone matters. Not only does it have to be polished and easy to navigate in order to keep your members (and visitors) engaged. It has to be up-to-date and have useful information on it.

I’ve been that church seeker after a move or another big life shift that spent hours online looking for my next place to land. If I had seen your church’s website would I have wanted to visit? Or would I have chuckled at how it looked like it was stuck in the 90s along with AOL, Geocites, & MySpace?

I started work on my first church website in the late 90s. It was an exciting experience for me. I still remember how amazing it felt to be publishing something on the Internet that could potentially be seen by anyone with a computer and online access.

I spent more than the last decade working at a local church in Chicago managing their website ministry. It was recognized as an excellent example of local church design by the national conference of churches more than once! That means top-10 out of thousands of other church websites.

The technologies and methodologies of website design have changed dramatically since then. It has been a roller coaster trying new things to find out what works best for congregations around the globe. I want to share my decades of experience with you so you can avoid some of the mistakes I’ve make and skip right on into the successes.

Not everything will be easy or perfect on your first try, but I’ll be here to guide you through the process from start to finish.
