Church websites play just an important role in church revitalization. Today we discuss some basic tips on how to best use your church’s website to help in revitalization.
- The first place a prospective guest visits is your church’s website. It needs to be updated and mobile friendly.
- Stock photos are ok for your church website if you need them, but don’t use photos which don’t represent what your church really is.
- Church website text needs to speak to guests. Cut down on or eliminate church insider language.
- Remember: the primary audience of your church’s website is potential guests. Focus your content on them.
The seven website tips we discuss are:
- Quality is still necessary.
- The site should honestly reflect the church as it is today.
- The website provides a good opportunity to invite guests and the community to join the revitalization efforts.
- Church website 101 still applies: time of services; physical address; etc.
- The site provides an opportunity for others to give toward revitalization.
- Keep the site updated!
- Remember the priority of guests at your website.
