Church Website Design Without Hiring a Web Designer (Video Guide)

Church Website Design Customization

Custom church website design is an expensive service. In the old days if you wanted a unique look for your church website, you needed web design skill. If you couldn’t code, you had to pay a church website designer to do it for you. Those days are over for many churches.

Our church WordPress themes take advantage of one of the best features in WordPress, the Theme Customizer.

You can customize design elements like colors, fonts, logo and more using the Theme Customizer — no web design skill required. Changes are shown in a real-time preview. This lets you experiment and get everything right before unveiling the design customizations to actual website visitors.

How to Add Social Share Buttons to Your Church Website

Social Share Cover

Update: We no longer recommend this plugin. It was acquired and the new owner made changes we are not happy with. See our new recommendation.

When someone enjoys a sermon or blog post on your church website, will they share it on Twitter or Facebook?

Make it easy for them to share by adding social share buttons to your content. The easier something is for someone, the more likely they’ll do it. The mere presence of social sharing buttons also acts as a suggestion to people who otherwise would not have considered sharing your church’s content.

I’ll show you how to add social sharing buttons to your church website.

Finding Answers Just Got Easier

Question Kid

We decided after finishing the new Exodus theme that it would benefit all to improve our support resources. The first task was to improve Common Questions by expanding and reorganizing them.

I started using a new service recently and had about ten questions over the course of a few days. I was delighted to find they were all answered in a neatly organized and searchable section of their website. This is the experience we want to provide for you.

Three common problems with church websites are cost, ease of use and design quality. Most church website solutions are expensive. Poorly built systems are hard to use. Outdated designs abound. Does your church website suffer in these ways?

I’ll tell you how you can get a better church website for about $24 per month. You can decide if you want to join thousands of other churches, big and small, that have already done it.

The response we’ve gotten from the new website is just overwhelming.

How to Choose a Church WordPress Theme

Sticky Questions

There are many church WordPress themes available today. You might think the only difference is how they look. After all, that’s what WordPress themes are supposed to be for — giving your church website a certain appearance. But there is more to consider when choosing a church WordPress theme.

Here are some questions to get answers for when looking at any church WordPress theme. Some answers may be easy to find. Others may require asking the theme seller specific questions.

WordPress Users: Avoid the Theme Lock-in Effect

WordPress Theme Lock-in Effect

How easy will it be for you to switch WordPress themes in the future? Most theme users probably don’t ask themselves this question. Why would you? WordPress lets you switch themes with a few clicks so things should work smoothly. But that’s only the case if your theme was developed following WordPress standards in order to avoid the lock-in effect.

Much has been written for WordPress theme developers on the lock-in effect while hardly anything has been aimed at theme users like you to explain what the lock-in effect is and how to avoid it. I feel this is necessary because there are still many themes built without consideration for your ability to switch in the future.
