Revamping or Creating a Church Website

How does a church create or revamp its website?

Andrew Norton, Business Manager at Grace Church (Lititz, PA) where I had been for 10 years previously, had asked me how Topeka Bible Church is revamping its website. While there are my avenues to take, our church decided to go with a new upstart that seems to have a slick solution designed just for churches.

So here is a quick 5-minute crash screencast video in how City Gates is assisting our church by hosting and giving us a great user interface to manage our website. They've taken the technical part of creating a website out of the equation and giving more access to the common man - which should produce easier updating to more users, but maintaining a pleasant uniform look, feel, and navigation.

Head over to City Gates to see how they aren't one of those cookie-cutter web solutions. It's designed and built just for churches by real people.

TBC's site should launch soon.


  1. Any church thinking of revamping its website might like to use this church website self-assessment tool to find ways to make the site reach outsiders in the community.
