One of my favorite websites, Church Relevance, has a list of the top 80 church websites. Obviously websites are a great way to introduce newcomers to a church. When traveling or going to speak for a church, I always check out the church’s website before I go. I like to see the faces of people and try to ascertain what a church is about.What’s more, an ever-increasing number of people I know use the internet to choose which congregation they will visit as they look for a new church home. Here’s my question: What’s in a website? What can a church do to make its web presence useful? And what can be placed on a website that might make you visit one church rather than another? Could a church by any other website smell as sweet?
E-mail me or leave a comment and let me know what you think.
Along the same lines, I’m noticing a growing number of churches hosting church “services” on the web. You can go to church by logging on. What do you think about that? I can’t imagine that the fellowship diners are all that good.
