Websites are the “front door” for congregations, and having a web presence is no longer optional. Visitors often search for a new church home online. Savvy congregations even use their websites to gather information from people.
Investing the right resources in a website can help your congregation attract new visitors and better interact with members. Ask yourself these questions before jumping into your website project.
- What is our budget?
- What are our goals for the website? Examples: To share information, gather new information, reach new people, interaction, advertise, etc.
- Who will maintain the site and can they devote enough time to this work?
- Based on who will be maintaining the site, what type of training do we need?
Considering those questions will help you find the right web-solution for your congregation.
