Tithing is one of the most critical components of a healthy church. God calls His body to be diligent in the spreading of His kingdom through the contribution of their finances. Because it’s so critical, making giving as simple and prominent as possible should be a priority, and one of the best ways to do this is by utilizing your church website.
Do you want to know what I’m most excited about this spring?
Embracing technology is essential for today’s modern church. Of course, there are a few challenges that come with it. While tech solutions can make our lives easier, sometimes they just make our heads spin.
As the church administrator, you are the beholder of all the answers. People come to you asking where to give, how to sign-up, how to watch, when events are happening, etc. Answering questions like these is important because it helps your church members know what to do and how to do it. Often, however, the answer to these questions ends up being a list of different links, GoogleDocs, and in-person forms. Wouldn’t it be a beautiful day if you could send one link to everyone who asks you a question? Praise be! That day has come by using church software integrations.
No matter how hard you try to set and forget your church website, it will always need tweaks and updates. As design trends change, the life of your church moves forward, and your site gains traction, it’s inevitable that you will need to spend some time working through the details. What better time to do this than the end-of-the-year?
Now that the church is entering one of its busy seasons, it is time to double down and minister to your community through your website even more! Here are 3 ways that you can love your community through your website this holiday season.
Building a church website can feel like a huge, overwhelming task. Not only do you need to make decisions about which platform to use, what your church website goals are, and what the design needs to look like, but somehow you have to figure out what church website pages to include too.
This might come as a shock, but our world has gone digital on everything from grocery shopping to exercise (still trying to figure this one out)! This creates a unique opportunity for churches. Church websites are a great place to start, but why not kick it up a notch and start a church podcast to promote on that website, too?
Imagine yourself in this position: you are new to the area and looking for a church to visit. As you look through several church websites, you click through the pages trying to get a feel for who that church is and what programs they have available for your family. As you click on the staff page, what are you expecting to see? What do you hope to get out of this page?
Scripture makes it clear that we are to go out and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19-20). In an increasingly digital world, we can now use a variety of resources to pursue this mission online. Church live streaming is a powerful tool that can support your church’s efforts to share the Gospel.
