Dear Church Leader,
YOUR CHURCH NEEDS A GREAT WEBSITE
Your site is your new front door and church lobby. Newcomers will visit website before showing up in person in order to help them feel oriented to your congregation. They will form a first impression that will cause them to visit, or to move on.
What impression are you sending about your church community through your current site?
Your church has a great opportunity to send a clear message and accurate first impression about your community to potential guests around the clock.
YOU NEED TO HIRE THE PROFESSIONALS
Do you have the time and expertise necessary? Unless a congregation is blessed with a great Web strategist and designer who also has development talent and the ability to donate their time (that confluence is exceedingly rare), a small church ends up missing out on this great opportunity by having a counter-productive Web site.
Most church websites are counterproductive.
Through lack of design and communications expertise, or lack of acknowledgement of a need for help, you will drive potential guests away by failing to accurately communicate who your congregation is, and the welcoming community that you are.
It might be hard to hear, but it’s usually pride that fails to admit this lack of expertise and need at the root of many counterproductive church Web sites.
YOU NEED TO HIRE MERECHURCH
We know your world.
The MereChurch team is led by Matt Heerema, a co-pastor at a very average local church (~300 in attendance). Matt understands the economic realities and needs of a small congregation. We have also done work for mega-churches and international ministries, so we understand the technical challenges and needs of ministry at every scale.
We are an expert team who have handled many world-class projects. And we can work with you at a budget that is feasible for a small congregation.
Thank you for the opportunity.
Pastor, Web Consultant, Musician, Husband, and Father of 4.
