Church Doors

Much work is done to prepare for Sunday morning. People show up and it’s worth it. But how many people are not showing up because your church website left them wanting?

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.
