Website Construction (CMS-Based)
Impact statement
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to grow our outreach efforts to the surrounding communities, as well as build our children/youth ministry for the increasing number of families attending our church services.

Project Details

What We Need
  • Development of a new website using a Content Management System (CMS)
  • Training to ensure Organization's staff members can update content and manage the site post-launch
  • Note: This project is for a website built with a Content Management System (CMS), such as Wordpress, Squarespace, Joomla, or Drupal. A CMS-based website can be maintained and updated easily (no coding required!)
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have an active domain name and website with a lot of content.

    We are currently working with various ministry groups in the organization to update their purpose/function and contact information.
How This Will Help

This project is important because our current website is visually outdated, has too much content/information, and doesn't reflect the current identity of the organization. We hope that the completion of this website redesign project will draw new visitors, and boost morale with employees, church members, employees, tenants, and rental customers.
