TOP 5 FEATURES OF A HELPFUL CHURCH WEBSITE

Happy Easter from your friends at Church Plant Media! As your team prepares for Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday services, we wanted to encourage you to take a fresh look at your church website. According to LifeWay Research and the 1,000 Protestant pastors they polled in 2012, Easter Sunday has the highest attendance every year. With this in mind, will your website serve all of those new visitors?

Over the past few months we have shared some thoughts on Tim’s blog about the 5 primary features that every church website should have. As we unpacked these features we repeated the phrase: a church website = an online building. Our hope is that this brief phrase will help you think more strategically about the Internet. To learn more about these 5 features follow the links below to the blog posts that explain our thinking in detail.

  1. The CORNERSTONE proclaims the gospel of Jesus Christ.
  2. The FOUNDATION utilizes a Content Management System.
  3. The FLOORPLAN organizes pages, sermons, events, etc.
  4. The EXTERIOR shows your design style & code structure.
  5. The ENTRANCE answers questions: who, what, when, why.

You may also be interested in the Church Plant Media ~ A La Carte post we did a number of months ago. In that post we collected links to a few of our other entries about website costs and various content strategies. Although every church is different, we believe every church can have a truly great website for gospel ministry.

If you are an avid reader of Tim’s blog, you may notice that our upcoming sponsored posts will have a different flavor as we answer some Frequently Asked Questions. With that said, if you have a website question that can not wait, feel free to call us at the number below.

  • Managing Kingdom Causes with Sound Business Principles 

    This week the blog is sponsored by Redeemer University. The word “management” conjures up images of executives leading large corporations with the goal of generating wealth for shareholders.

The person who has suffered the loss…
