Making full use of the internet helps churches broaden their community outreach efforts, publishes churchdev.com
Mooresville, NC -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/13/2015 -- An estimated 70 percent of Christians reveal they turn to their online resources when searching for scripture and inspiration, many of these home bound or otherwise unable to attend conventional sermons. In contrast, less than 40 percent of churches currently utilize the internet for reaching out to the public. Leading church website design firm ChurchDev.com was established to create websites for churches in an effort to help bridge that gap, delivering schematics geared toward the specific needs of churches.
As the company's latest service in their sector, spokesperson Angela Beard has launched a new design option. Beard confirmed, "The latest addition to our professional church website design selection is CD120, which showcases church ministries. As with all of our designs, our team will fully customize the site and delver a complete website. Once it's complete, anyone from the church can manage the site using our drag and drop page builder and fill in the blank sermon, event and staff systems."
While businesses each hold a range of requirements for their websites depending on a number of elements, churches have a particularly unique set of needs. Various administrators and additional staff members are typically involved in updates; therefore, multiple users require access to the system. Since these are often volunteers with diverse levels of technological knowledge, websites for such organizations must offer functionality while remaining user-friendly.
Religious blogs are crucial to optimizing community outreach efforts and devotionals, which means an easily accessible blog updating function is necessary for pastors. Having the ability to present and update event calendars provides a much needed guide for members of the church and its surrounding neighborhoods whereas photo galleries allow staff members to display memories from past occasions. Such proceedings are generally funded by tithes and donations, so incorporating an online giving portal provides the establishment with a broader reach in this capacity.
Concluded Beard, "We provide a complete website for our clients. Our design team will work with the church to customize the site so it meets all its needs. Anyone interested can view all church website designs we offer on our designs page, http://www.churchdev.com/designs/. Our hope is that our new CD120 design, as well as our other layouts, will further help churches take full advantage of technology and foster their ability to make a positive impact on the world."
