Don't expect God to knock down walls for you, when He has given you the key to the gate!
It is time to take a hard look at our changing forms of communication. No longer can we simply paste up a static digital 'Church Sign' and expect results.
People use the Internet to find answers to their questions. When a family moves into town, they will hook up their computer, and open an Internet browser and type in the question: 'Churches in this town that are . . . ?'
It has been shown that 8 out of every 10 visitors to your church have already visited your church on the Internet; and decided based on what your Church Web Site showed them, that they would give your church a try!
Have you asked yourself what new people are looking for when they want to find a church?
Now the next question you need to answer is
"Does my Church Web Site provide that information where a first time visitor to the site can easily see what they are looking for?"
If a person has to keep clicking through layers to find information, you may never see them walk through your doors.
Transforming Church dot net suggests that your web site should answer these questions on the main page.
What will happen this week?
What are the service times?
What is address? How do I get there?
What is the suggested dress?
Is there childcare for every service?
Why should I come to your church?
They will want to learn about the church’s Beliefs/Mission/Values.
Have a look at this web site that we built specifically for one of our partners. http://www.kennettfirstag.org/
Here is a link to learn more about what you need to do to make your web site interactive instead of a static bulletin board.
You can use our advanced Partner Syndication system to automatically load and renew content from Global Christian Center to your own Church web site.
