    TueTuesdayFebFebruary19th2013 Faith Baptist Mill Creek
    byDavid Pohlmeier Tagged Portfolio 0 comments Add comment
    Last week, iMinistries helped launch a new website for Faith Baptist Mill Creek in Geneva, IL. Along with the website, iMinistries was hired to design a new logo and provide the church with a branding strategy.

    Visit Website

    Check out FBC Mill Creek's new website.
    Be sure to view it on different devices as it's a responsive layout.


    Faith Baptist has a simple, yet important mission, "Our prayerful hope is to see self-reliant people become God-reliant disciples." iMinistries wanted to creatively represent that vision with this new logo. Thus, the concept of the fishhook was born. The idea originates from one of the most famous verses in the Bible, Matthew 4:19:

    “Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”

    Jesus was calling for his first disciples.



    Grant Diamond, the senior pastor at FBC said these kind words about the logo/branding. "iMinistries offered very competitive pricing for thier design work and worked up a logo for us that has already started a number of conversations about our church even though we've only had the logo rolled out for a week! Looking back, investing in iMinistries to not just build our website, but also customize it through logo and color work was no doubt the best decision we could have made."
     


    Grant also had this to say about the website. "As the Head Pastor of a growing church I knew our church needed to drastically improve our web presence, but I also knew that I didn't have much time to dedicate to the project. Enter iMinistries. I truly cannot sing the praises of iMinistries loudly enough. David and the rest of the staff walked me step by step through the process and along the way turned me from a doubter, that building and updating an incredible new website could really be as easy to learn and use as they claimed, to a believer. Stop looking for the company that's going to build your new church or non-profits website, you've already found your best option in iMinistries."

    The website for FBC Mill Creek is a customized version of our free template called Bethany. This church website template is easily customizable and is a responsive design. A responsive website scales and adapts to meet the resolution and size of any screen it's being viewed on.

    WedWednesdaySepSeptember19th2012 First Family Church Website & Branding
    byDavid Pohlmeier Tagged Portfolio 0 comments Add comment


    Just recently, iMinistries finished a complete logo and branding package along with a semi-custom website for First Family Church in Antioch, California.

    The logo and branding design incorporates a few specific elements:
    • The abbreviation for the church 'FFC'
    • Simple/clean logo mark
    • A logo mark that is suitable for social media
    • New colors that incorporate an existing color scheme
    The color and branding was then applied to one of our free website templates called Jericho. iMinistries helped create some of the imagery on the website as well.

    MonMondayAugAugust6th2012 Wheaton Bible Church Responsive Website
    byDavid Pohlmeier Tagged Portfolio 0 comments Add comment

    Wheaton Bible Church launches new website.

    Wheaton Bible Church is a "nondenominational church that has been serving DuPage County for more than 80 years. For all of those years our desire and passion has been to see people’s lives changed by God."

    Their new website design is responsive. This means that no matter the device or screen resolution it's being viewed on, their church website will look great. It even changes layout to look better on narrow screens. Go ahead and see for yourself. Try looking at the site on your phone. You'll notice the content stacks in order to adjust for a vertical layout.

    We designed this website in partnership with Wheaton Bible Church and this same site is available for all to use that have their website on our church CMS. We call the website template Bethany. The colors are different, but all the same functionality exists. Read more about Bethany and another new responsive church template we released called Cana.

    iMinistries is the best possible partner for Wheaton Bible Church! They're flexible, understanding people who have one of the best content management systems I've ever worked with—and on top of it, they're a forward thinking company who always open the door for our website to be on the cutting edge of technology. We could not have found a better ministry partner!

    SatSaturdayOctOctober1st2011 New Ministry Website for Harvest Bible Chapel
    byTravis Hickox Tagged Portfolio 0 comments Add comment

    Long time ministry partner Harvest Bible Chapel has launched a new ministry website using the iMinistries Church Website Content Management System (CMS). They call it Harvest 5G



    Harvest wanted site visitors to be able to pray for their staff members. To accomplish that, we used our new ToolTip which creates a simple hover affect. We populated it with additional details about each staff member. It provides a great user experience.



    We also created a page for them which displays a lot of great media that they produce using our Light box. In this screen shot, we have selected one of the videos from their Senior Pastor, James MacDonald.



    It was a great project to work on and we are excited to see how they continue to use their website for the Glory of the Lord.
    TueTuesdayAugAugust16th2011 Free Church Website Design Selected By Harvest North Phoenix

    Long time customer Harvest Bible Chapel of North Phoenix recently made a huge improvement to the look and feel of their church websites design.

    They began by selecting one of our latest designed free church website skins that we offer Bethsaida, and customized it by adding in their own custom CSS via their control panel. That effort and time that they spent on creating beautiful graphics for the home page and ministry page headers has paid off in spades as their site looks excellent! Our hats are off them them.

    Selecting the right church website provider is important. 

    Our latest customer, Harvest Bible Chapel of Barrie, Ontario, did their research and moved their church website over to the iMinistries Church CMS from Clover.

    Once their website was live, we asked them why they decided to switch. They told us that they were looking to save money, and liked that we offer so many features right out of the box. They were also excited about getting an iPhone app for their church.

    We also asked them what they thought of working with us to bring their website to life. They told us that they loved our project management and thought that we were very professional and timely. They also appreciated that we provided helpful insights to them along the way.

    Harvest Bible Chapel - Portland Maine, selects iMinistries for their new church website!


    It was a pleasure to work with Senior Pastor Bill Foss to get their new church website setup on the iMinistries Church CMS. Like everyone, he wanted to be sure that his church website truly reflected the region in which the Lord has placed them in. We were able to get this design accomplished because our designer was humble enough to learn from Bill what truly represented Portland, Maine instead of creating a design based on a mid-westerner's point of view.

    Harvest Bible Chapel - Oakville has been a loyal customer of our Church Content Management System (CMS) for several years. They use many of the great features that come with our Church CMS and have even been responsible for the creation of others. Because they understand the value and reach that it provides them in their community, they have committed to investment in their web presence.

    On the internet, an organization's credibility can be helped or hurt by its website. Because of that fact, Harvest has modified their look and feel almost yearly to keep it current. It has certainly been fun to watch their progression over the years and we are grateful to be able to provide them with a CMS that can be transformed on demand.

    Should Believers in the Lord Jesus Christ be willing to gamble?

    If we were betting men and women, we wouldn't get nervous betting on you wanting a church website that is visually appealing, affordable and extremely flexible. One of the many great features of the iMinistries Church CMS is the ability to change your look and feel with ease. Harvest Bible Chapel of Granger, Indiana has done just that by purchasing the Malta Premium Skin for $75.

    Take a look at the Before and After screenshots below. Yesterday, their website looked like Before. Today, their website looks like After. Here are a few reasons why this is so important.
    1. Time/Cost Savings
      Because of the iMinistries skin feature, there wasn't a need to recreate a new church website. They simply had to choose a different skin and click save!
    2. Training
      By remaining an iMinistries customer and changing their skin, the staff doesn't have to relearn how to manage their church website using a new CMS. The back end tools remain the same, so they can continue to post news, blog posts, and so much more.
    When they made the switch to using the Malta Premium Skin, they also purchased the ability to collect Event Registrations by Fellowship One.

    In today's economic times, if you were to ask any church leader what their highest needs are, they would say additional staff, more money, and more time in each day.

    Harvest Bible Chapel of North Indianapolis, Indiana has been a customer of iMinistries since fall 2007. A little over a month ago, their website and newsletter administrator LiaAnn Ellis contacted us to discuss upgrading their look. They were interested in getting a custom design for their website created, but after investigating our website more, she uncovered our new Premium Skins for only $75.

    She reported that after showing her leadership team this design, they wanted to move forward, saving thousands of dollars and time. Just like anyone, they were curious to know if they could make a few tweaks to this design to make it their very own. LiaAnn presented us with a few mock ups that she created and after we reviewed them and coming to a mutual agreement, we were able to implement their design choices.

    I’d be remiss to not thank Travis and David both for all the work and help you gave throughout these couple of weeks. It was a ridiculously short turnaround and I would not have been able to help make it happen if you both had not been so quick in responding and making edits as necessary to the code. The skin is amazing; the tweaks done to make it more personalized are amazing! It is definitely clear that IMinistries is gifted in furthering Kingdom work by helping others further their Kingdom work!

    Truly, the process was easy, the timing was great, and the quick help was awesome. Not to mention, I learned a ton about your CMS which will really help me later on when I add new content!

    We love having great relationships with so many of our customers. A long standing relationship has been forged with Tim Buczek of Hilltown Baptist Church. They have used the iMinistries Church CMS to run their church website for several years now. For the first couple of years, they used a few different free skins that we offer, but recently decided to upgrade to one of our new Premium skins. After working with Tim to change the skin, Tim redesigned his banners and created a rotating advertisement for his home page using our Rotator feature.

    Take a look at the transformation below.

    iMinistries Crew,

    Thanks so much for the newest look for our site! You guys provide a great balance of flexibility and structure. I can't build a site from the ground up, but love the ability to be creative and personalize what we want.

    I love the new Premium Skin. It's slick and modern, easy on the eyes, easy to navigate, and still leaves a lot of potential for us to develop at time and demand grows.

    Love working with you guys! Looking forward to the next opportunity.

    Having the ability to update your own website is a must. Harvest Bible Chapel Carson Tahoe pastor Jon Cox was sold on using the iMinistries Church CMS because it gives him both the creative and contextual control that he was looking for. As soon as he saw the new Sinai Premium skin, he felt it captured the woodsy, rustic look of Carson City.

    Jon has done an excellent job of using his church website to engage his future congregants both visually and textually.

    Because of a glowing recommendation from Jeff Terrell of Harvest Bible Chapel Kansas City, Masters Seminary theological professor Greg Harris came to us asking for help. After having four different websites that promoted his growing library of published books as well as a blog, he wanted to consolidate everything into one website. More importantly, he wanted to have better control of editing the content on his website.



    It certainly proves that word of mouth is clearly the best advertising...thanks Jeff!

    In customary fashion, after launching each website we like to get feedback so that we can learn from each one of our customers. This is what Dr. Harris had to say:
    I highly recommend iMinistries. They have been wonderfully knowledgeable about web design, and wonderfully patient with me who knows so little about it. There is nothing that I am aware where they did not follow through on what they told me--and often very quickly. There design was superb and professionally done.

    Now that we have done our updated website, I cannot imagine doing it with anyone else.

    Harvest Bible Chapel in Muskoka, Ontario recently came back to iMinistries after a short sabbatical. After initially signing on with iMinistries, Harvest Muskoka left for a local company, then tried the CMS Clover, before deciding to return to us. Harvest Muskoka staff raved about our "quick customer service" and that our websites come loaded with pre-built pages for easy start-up, which wasn't the case with their last two providers.

    The church went with an iMinistries Premium skin, which includes the addition of their logo and the customization of social media links, all for $75.


    We are super excited about our new website! We made the switch because we were finding that our previous [Clover] website was not very interactive or useful ... whereas [our iMinistries website] is almost limitless as far as functionality and ... [is] easier for everyone to connect with what's happening at Harvest Muskoka ... because a lot is happening!!

    byTravis Hickox Tagged Portfolio 0 comments Add comment
    Harvest Bible Chapel in Brampton, Ontario has been a customer for over a year and just upgraded their church website from a free skin to one of our new premium skins (they choose Malta).

    By choosing a Premium skin, we added Harvest Brampton's logo and linked the skin's social media icons to their desired destination.



    Harvest Brampton's Jameson Evendon, Worship Ministry Coordinator explains why they changed skins and what makes iMinistries stand out among other church CMS.

    Why did you want to re-skin your site?
    "A church's website is an important part of their profile with visitors and potential visitors, as well as regular attenders. Harvest Brampton has been on the map for less than a year, so we want to take extra care with our website to be sure we are communicating clearly and effectively with our community. Our website was functional, but it was very plain looking, and didn't communicate effectively what our church was like. We elected to re-skin our site in order to give visitors to our site a more accurate portrayal of what our church was like, and to make our website one which you would want to come back to."

    Why did you chose to go with iMinistries' Premium skins? Why Malta in particular?
    "We wanted a skin that not many other websites were using. Upon researching other Harvest Bible Chapel websites, we discovered that they were all using a similar template. At first we thought it might be better for us to use the same template, but when we learned that there was a new skin available, we were intrigued. When we saw the Malta skin, we loved it right away. It was the perfect mix of color and readability, and it brought our site that unique look."

    What was your reaction to seeing the new site with the new skin?
    "When it came up with all our graphics in place, it looked great! It was leaps ahead from our last website skin. I probably visited the site a dozen times a day for the first few days, just to look at it. We loved it."

    How would you describe iMinistries' customer service?

    "I was impressed at how accessible iMinistries' customer service is. It's easy to get a hold of someone for a troubleshooting issue, and any e-mails or Basecamp messages are replied to very quickly. We were also impressed at how iMinistries went the extra mile to have a look around our site for potential improvements and brought those to our attention, in order to better serve our people. It could have been a cold install of a new skin, but instead they showed they really care about their customers."

    "I was impressed at how accessible iMinistries' customer service is ... they really care about their customers."

    Harvest Bible Chapel Denver has now been planted and they too selected the iMinistries powerful church content management system to run their website. We won't clutter up this blog post with our thoughts for we think this quote says it all. Thank you Jeff! May the Lord bless Harvest Bible Chapel Denver in ways that prove that it is not man who does the work, but Jesus Christ!

    Travis, David, and iMinistries team,

    Thank you so much for your dedication, time, and effort of building a great site for our church. Your artistic abilities, timeliness, competitive pricing, and comprehensive approach were first class all the way.

    Working with iMinistries was a tremendous blessing. A functional and sharp website is very important and yet most of us do not have the expertise or the language to describe exactly what we want. During this project, everyone on staff took the time to help me understand the process and made me feel like my project was of the utmost importance. The entire staff worked very promptly to get our website completed and beyond our expectations.

    Having worked with other web designers in the past who use their level of expertise to overcharge, procrastinate, and make you feel inferior, I was nervous about this project. To my great delight I found working with the staff a great encouragement. I would highly recommend iMinistries to anyone who desires affordable web pricing, a great design, a personable staff, a high level of expertise, a system that is easy to learn and adapt, and a group of people who truly love the Lord and desire to use their gifts to serve Him.

    I look forward to staying connected with all of you and appreciate all you have done to help us launch Harvest Bible Chapel Denver!

    God’s richest blessings,
    Jeff

    Harvest Bible Chapel in Peoria's design team wanted a new look for their website. They created a custom skin and worked with us to make it as interactive as possible.

    Images at the top of the page emphasize Harvest Bible Chapel's values of Worship, Walk (with), Work (for), and Witness (for) Christ. And links in the middle of the page link to the church's online sermons, location, and mission. They've also utilized the Rotator Feature to display banners their design team created.



    Travis,

    Just a quick thanks to let you know how much I appreciate the website. We have received many oohs and ahhs and we have not really pumped it yet. Next few weeks we will be directing our body at the web more and more as events are coming with sign up and we now can do it online!

    Anyway, organization, features, simplicity of use for my staff…all great. Thanks.

    In Him,

    St. John's Ev. Lutheran needed a website that could host information for both their church and school. Using iMinistries' Ministry Feature, they were able to create ministries for their church and display their school's classrooms. The result is two sites in one.

    They chose the Simple skin for a clean, classic look and added a customized image on their front page to make it pop.



    The “buzz” is starting… the “word” about the site and the 3/31/10 launch date continues to spread… many people are getting VERY excited about the website coming to fruition!...

    Thanks...for helping Gary, Millie, and I build a strong, solid foundation for this website and making it become a reality.

    We started the project for Harvest Bible Chapel Tampa's website on March 15. We had the website populated and launched by March 25.

    Utilizing the Harvest skin and customizing it to Senior Pastor Rich Culp's specifications (Culp went with the pewter and red accent colors of Tampa's NFL franchise, the Buccaneers), and our comprehensive Harvest Church Plant Package, site setup was a snap.



    Not only is the website beautiful, functional, and versatile, [but] you and the folks at iMinistries are incredibly patient and helpful. As a preacher, I would rather stand up in front of 3,000 people than touch a single widget of a website. Before going into this process, I did not even know what a URL was or for that matter what three words begin with U...R…L unless they meant “U R a Loser Rich” when it comes to websites.

    Now I am conquering website administration…I even know how to set up a Rotator...

    You guys have been more than long-suffering to work with me over the phone because I could not even find the HELP button much less understand the lingo in the support desk. All that to say, iMinistries well reflects the servant-heart nature of our Lord. He said that the greatest in the Kingdom is the one who serves. Thanks for serving the Kingdom with great websites.

    Lina AbuJamra, M.D., MBA, speaker, and Bible teacher, wanted a way to promote her ministry. She needed a ministry website that could showcase her blog, her upcoming speaking engagements, and provide a way for people to contact her. Even with a custom skin and look, AbuJamra's Live With Power website was set up and live within weeks.

    Now she has a website that hosts her blog (which automatically updates her homepage), her events calendar, her Twitter feed, and more information about her (including a photo slide show).

    This sharp, fresh skin will be available for purchase when we launch our new Premium package.

    Travis,

    Man you have NO IDEA how fast and Incredible this is. When I did this with my last church, it was VERY LABOR intensive, more complicated, more expensive and not half as convenient to work on and in my humble opinion did not look near as good. If you want me to do a commercial for you, I will! :)

    Thanks again for all your help and the quick responses!

    Potter's Field Ministries wanted an updated look and better control of their content. So they called us.

    We took one of our free skins, Grunge, and made a few custom tweaks for them, including changing the menu color to red. They added a new header themselves with their updated logo and utilized our new Rotator feature to display scrolling ads on the home page.



    After their ministry website launched, we asked Potter's Field Ministries' Steve Venable, "You've worked with different website companies in the past. In your mind, what makes us different?" 
    "Yeah, I have worked with a few. iMinistries customer service, administrative interface, and ease of overall use is what makes it a much better choice for setting up and maintaining a website! Customer service is top-notch and the set-up experience, especially your willingness to port over existing content, was great (as usual). Also, the follow-up on issues and other related site specific needs was timely and consistent."
    Nothing makes us happier than seeing another satisfied customer with control over their ministry website.

    For new Harvest Bible Chapel church plants, continuing the look and feel of founding Harvest is important to them. One easy way they can accomplish this on their church website is by customizing the Harvest skin to their ministry. Plants in Austin, Texas and Durham, Canada chose new colors, the images of their city's skyline, their pastors, and other themes, and a customized Harvest logo in their skin to give a fresh feel to an existing look.

    The Harvest plant in Calgary, Alberta, chose to capitalize on its city's (and country's) love of hockey and incorporate it in its skin. Pastor Trevor Peacock selected the deep red of his city's hockey team, the Calgary Flames, and used it as his website's background color and the team's arena home as its header image. The result is a site that pops off the screen and immediately relates to its city's people.

    With Peacock posting regular updates in his blog and with his Twitter feed embedded on his homepage, Calgary locals are sure to keep coming back.

    Hilltown Baptist in Hilltown, Pennsylvania has been a customer of iMinistries since January 2006. They wanted to freshen up their site and liked the look of our free skin, Colourise. However, they wanted to include their own background image in place of the "rainbow spectrum."



    The result, after adding a banner and ad that a member of their church created, is a custom-looking site for a fraction of the price. Hilltown Baptist and Harvest Bible Chapel Joliet are the latest of a few churches to take one of our free skins and put their own touch on it.

    Hilltown appreciates our many features and, that at a moments notice, you can give your website a dramatic face lift with a moments notice but without loosing existing content.

    I was working with Jen Hawkins of Harvest Bible Fellowship yesterday, and we were looking at some of our existing customers websites together. We came across Harvest Bible Chapel Milwaukee, and I must admit that when I saw it, I felt a little bit of pride.

    Harvest Milwaukee has been with us for two years, and they recently decided to put some extra effort into their website. They selected one of our free skins and had their worship pastor create a header for them. They also have spent a significant amount of time filling in the gaps by using highlights on various pages as well as trying to add as many thumbnails to their articles that they have posted. Their site has been transformed in a great way.

    I wrote their Senior Pastor to encourage him in what I saw, and he had this to say:
    "I love your product and would recommend it to anyone. It is disappointing to see some using the product, but not to its fullest potential. We still have a long way to go with blogging and groups...but we're getting there."

    We placed a fresh coat of paint on the site for Harvest Bible Chapel of Oakville. In this itteration, we went in a different direction than their last custom design. As their church has grown and they have placed a larger emphasis on communicating online to their church body, they have found that their website has been filled with tons of information. At times, it can be hard to find quickly find items.

    After plugging their Google Analytics account number into their iMinistries website, they found that a large portion of their viewers have larger screens than what they had just over two years ago. Because of this handy information, we were able to make the viewport, or the space that you see, much wider. This has allowed them to have more menu items and more content front-and-center without having to scroll down the page.


     

    In addition, Harvest Oakville is the first to use another feature that we just created a few weeks ago--the Quick Menu. This new feature helps users find things quickly on your website. With just a click of a button, a detailed menu slides down, listing links which jump to hard-to-find items. While you can kind of see how it looks in the screen shot provided below, we encourage you to check it out yourself by either clicking on one of the images or visiting http://www.harvestoakville.ca.

    "iMinistries has become an extension of our local church ministry. It's a partnership. We're more accessible now as a church plant because of our online presence.

    Harvest Bible Chapel of North Indy was in the same boat as Harvest York Region. They had been using a free skin for almost two years before deciding to have us help them with a customized look for their front page. We worked with their worship director, Luke Newton, to develop graphics that reflected their ministry and header for their site. Their primary desire was to have a mixture of larger graphics as well as text on their homepage that was published automatically as it was created.

    "Our website was in need of a fresh look and more user-friendly interface. With the help of Travis at iMinistries we were able to accomplish both of these elements all while staying within our given budget. iMinistries offered an amazing amount of insight and expertise to the design process all while using every resource at their disposal to understand exactly what we were looking for and delivering that to us. Not only has our site become a key communication piece in furthering the kingdom of God here in North Indianapolis, but it was also a joy to work with these guys and see their hearts for God in action. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a similar experience."

    In the fall of 2008, Senior Pastor Nathan DuPree began his church in the Reno, Nevada area. They signed up with us and had us modify one of our free skins that we offer. This is a great example of how one of our free skins can be customized to fit the needs of any church or ministry.


    "Working with iMinistries was such a great experience. They had the personal touch we were looking for in a website company, and it has made the difference in our relationship with iMinistries. Thanks guys."

    Harvest Bible Chapel in Prescott is another Harvest church plant that chose to use us to improve their web-based ministry. We created a custom look for them with loads of great images that pop off the page.


    "We LOVE our new front page! I can't say it enough. It has added such a professional image to our church."

    Because I was on staff with Harvest Bible Fellowship and was in charge of implementing a design that mirrored their latest brochure, I am unable to give a review of iMinistries. However, I can say that I really like this site because of the podcasting area which is found in the Resources section.  I believe that it really showcases our blog functionality for you can sort on a variety of authors or tags, years and even months. You should check it out.

    "I'd like to say thanks to Travis and his team their for their brilliant web communications tool. We're in the beginning phases of implementing this tool for our church, but it is definitely going to change how our church communicates with its membership and external audiences. This single tool has shifted our communications from a rigid top down structure (i.e. church leadership to membership) to a more open, flexible, horizontal structure that empowers key ministry personnel and lay-leaders throughout the church to communicate directly, increasing communication speed and accuracy. More importantly, this tool will help ease the burden on key full-time staff.



    "I am also extremely thankful for iMinistries’ robust suite of built-in communications tools--blogs, e-newsletters, forms/registrations, photo galleries, podcasting, shopping carts, and much more--all for one convenient price based on your church's size. As a vice president of a marketing communications firm that develops complex web sites for a living, I discovered I couldn't have my team develop a package from scratch, like iMinisties, for any less than $20,000 (far beyond the reach of my church’s web budget). For the price, the iMinistries tool is by far and away the best deal going.
    "I also, found the iMinistries site is completely scalable to suit our church’s needs. So, we can grow the site both vertically and horizontally as well turn web features (i.e. blogs, galleries, newsletters, etc.) on AND off as our church sees fit.

    "Best of all, thanks to iMinistries WYSIWYG content editing system – our church can maintain a relationship-building presence on the web without having a full-time web guru on staff. The content interface is very, very similar to a popular word processor, so populating and updating site content is a breeze. iMinistries even offers an array of how-to videos and searchable FAQs to assist even the most novice of users. But in the few instances I required deeper support, the iMinistries team was never anymore than an e-mail away.

    "I could go on and on about the power and affordability of the iMinistries’ tool. However, I’ll just leave it here for now."

    Harvest Bible Chapel Indy West was another Harvest church plant who turned to us for their web needs. We created a site for them that uses a similar format to our other Harvest plant sites, but still allows to show the church's unique personality.

    This site has a very bold customized look with many pictures and tons of information on the homepage. They have chosen to have newly created events jump to their homepage automatically, a feature that is easy to implement.
