Four Steps to Refresh Your Church Website This New Year

By: Luke Marzano
December 27th, 2018

Christmas seems to come and go faster and faster every year, and while this is often bittersweet, one good thing about it is we get to think about what comes next: the New Year! Yes, after all the Christmas festivities are over, we turn our attention to a new start. We focus on refreshing ourselves and our lives by planning our resolutions for the coming year. My resolution for last year? Well…. Let’s just say I didn’t make it long into 2018 without a few cinnamon rolls chasing me down (And let the record show, I have no regrets!) Maybe your resolution this past new year was about saving money, losing weight, getting organized, taking a trip, or chasing a dream. Hopefully you faired a little better than me in reaching your goals! But no matter what you chose or how it played out, the point of resolutions is usually the same… To make the upcoming year better than the last. Believe it or not, one of the best things you can do for your church is make a resolution to do the same for your website. With the changing of the year comes the changing of so many things at your church. The new year brings so much new information to share! So let’s make the upcoming year better than the last when it comes to your church site!

All About Website Migration

By: Luke Marzano
November 20th, 2018

We made a major transition in my family this year… No, I’m not talking about Lebron’s infamous move to Los Angeles (though I’m still dealing with the emotional impact of that one!). I’m talking about our transition from being a family of three to a family of four! We welcomed our second son this year. Of course he’s been the best addition to our little tribe, but all you parents out there know that this transition doesn’t always come easy. Dealing with a child #1 who’s used to undivided child #1 attention (And isn’t necessarily ready to share the spotlight!) Dealing with a child #2 who’s COMPLETELY different than child #1 (So going through it once doesn’t really help that much, does it?) Yeah. It’s a transition that takes some getting used to!   As parents, you go from zone defense to a man-to-man. Suddenly, you can’t pass off the baby and take a nap. Why? Because there’s another kid who needs you, too! (If you’re a parent of five, you’re laughing at me right now. But remember, there was day when you actually took naps!) Several months in, I think we’ve finally gotten the hang of this two-kid family thing. And here’s how we made it through the transition… We had help.
