Learning about church site software and church site software web development
How I learned about church site software, using church site software web tools, combining internet ministry websites with a business internet opportunity, all for church site web building.
An internet business opportunity introduced me to building church websites.
Here's how it happened: A phone call came offering me a new career opportunity. A wealthy church layman was interested in a business internet opportunity. He wanted to offer church web hosting and asked for my help.
He had some ideas for starting a new family friends ISP (Internet Service Provider). He asked what I knew about church site software, church site software web, and church site development.
All I knew was from using Microsoft Office products. Most computer owners already have MS Office products and would do well to build upon what you have and know by buying products called "add-ons" to enhance them.
For example, you can Enhance Microsoft Office with Plugins, Templates and Photos for PowerPoint, FrontPage, Outlook and Excel
CrystalGraphics is the leading provider of add-on products and services designed to enhance your Microsoft Office projects. CrystalGraphics' PowerPlugs add-ons for Microsoft Office are award-winning products that will add a more professional look to your presentations, emails, websites, spreadsheets and other documents! For more information, please visit www.CrystalGraphics.com.
Let me get back to my change career story. Using this type of software product (best church site software is often what you already own) fit right into my future employers dream.
His dream? Making church site software web friendly and give each congregation the opportunity to build church web site communities. By offering a free church web site, he wanted to create Christian web communities.
Another great source of church site software would be individual software developers, the little people in the website software world, yet they produce thousands of programs just as effective as Microsoft products.
Take a look as this church site software resource to see what is available in having an affective church office.
New Ministry Career: Director of Ministry and Technology
So launched my new ministry career with the title of Director of Ministry and Technology, a job overseeing web site development for ministry groups -- church websites, ministry group webites, Christian nonprofit websites, and other faith based group websites.
How I wish that I had available for me back then what is available to those desiring to build a highly visited ministry website, namely, the
Reference Center for Churches and Ministries.
His offer to me was this: would I come help start a web hosting business, specializing in church websites as well as offering small business web hosting and nonprofit corporation web hosting, in addition to church web hosting.
He had already made his fortune in home and business security systems. His goal was to add another income stream to his very successful business enterprise and at the same time fund ministries through the internet by hosting church web sites.
What I Know Now That I Did Not Know Then
Church Site Software Draws Traffic With Words With Spiritual Impact
When it comes to church site software web developers fail to view websites as a tool to share their message in terms non religious people would click on.
Church site software, while not written from a spiritual perspective, should be a tool that can reach people with the power of words.
Create Church Websites That Endure
Unforunately, whether using church site software or other commercial web building software, church webmasters are usually here today and gone tomorrow.
Even the church my daughter worked for, with attendance over 1000 each Sunday, could not get into their own church website to make changes. The reason? The person who built it has moved on!
Churches often fail to see the internet as a business internet opportunity. I've heard church leaders say it is wrong to view the church as a business enterprise.
But then the same enterprising church leaders buy property, often promote and sell books, charge for attending concerts and retreats, and even purchase the very offering plates used for the collection. Buying and selling is what businesses do, and so do churches!
So let's own up to the business side of ministry. Why not have a website that promotes the businesses of your church attendees? Or use your website to promote services? You will take an offering, won't you?
Avoid Building Church Websites That No One Visits
So many churches have websites that no one visits! Some are very pretty -- beautiful but ineffective websites -- so that when it comes to the one thing we like to do -- count people, there is no one to count!
So what's the solution to church websites with no traffic? I would suggest that for the best church site software, you click on
How to create a church website with traffic.
Now you know how to build an effective church website. I know of no better church site software that is more effective.
Effective church site software will help purpose driven churches declare their message to thousands, even when the doors of your church building are closed.
With a highly trafficked website, your church facility is always open, declaring your message of faith!
