Not Everything Has to Suck

August 9, 2004 by

A desire to improve church web design and unemployment prompted the growth of Great Church Websites, a web site founded by David Gillaspey. The site features screen shots of church web sites Gillaspey has deemed “great.” So far he’s reviewed about 5,000 sites and added 318 to his gallery. His site also includes basic web do’s and don’ts.

“The pastor or church staff has to have a vision for the use of a website to reach unchurched people,” Gillaspey said in a recent interview. “They need to view having a church website as an important ministry tool for reaching the lost.”

“I’d be happy if I accomplished nothing more with Great Church Websites than to wake church webmasters up to the fact that their website is out of date, but could easily be made acceptable by their simply eliminating the use of dated web design techniques,” said Gillaspey.
