Web Sites Hook Young Families

February 10, 2005 by

An article in Church Executive Magazine is a good reminder of the value of web sites, especially in hooking tech-friendly young families. The author takes his time getting to the point, but then it’s good stuff:

1. If you’re not on the web, you don’t exist.
2. The first impression of your congregation will be from the web.
3. A poor web site will actually turn people away.

    This is very true. I was hired in 2002 to remake my church’s website. (http://www.portcitychurch.org/) In the first few months after it launched that summer, I was shocked at how many people were telling stories of how they chose our church because of the website. I mean, I don’t even like our site anymore (actually I’m in the process of developing ver. 2), but just having an appealing and helpful web presence can mean alot to prospective attendees.

    I agree with Tom – we redid our website in April and implemented a search marketing strategy,and have seen great results – we are averaging 4 visitors per week from it (average attendence is 125 per week). We are now working on enhancements to make the site a place to come and stay awhile.
