My church is bi-lingual. We have a lot of English speakers but also Polish speakers since we’re in Kraków, Poland. Because of that, we have to do some clever things both in the service and online to suit both groups. This means making our church website flexible for different audiences is critical. I hope in sharing our use case you might get inspiration or ideas for your own.

We hope you’ve had a great experience going through the StoryBrand book with us. While I’ve shared minor annoyances about the book, they don’t matter as much as the advice. I hope you’ve found the book and the chapter reviews just as helpful. At the least, I hope it got you talking and thinking about how you communicate. I’m excited to review this chapter because of how helpful it is.
Besides prompts at the end of each chapter, Donald Miller includes suggestions for better websites. The website is important enough to dedicate a chapter to improving it.
Besides typical church services (experiences etc), every church, every now and then, will run an event. These events vary. Some are for specific groups or interests, and others more general.

This year, I made a New Year’s resolution that I hope will help me be a better person, blogger, and Christian. I’ve decided to take up the Bob Goff principle of quitting something and I’m going to shoot for quitting something every other week. The first thing I’ve decided to quit is a new website I was working on, a passion project that I simply could not give the time it deserved.
I was hoping to write two or three blog articles a week, something I was able to easily do for my old youth ministry website and something I can pull off without much effort for ChurchMag. But writing on the topic of faith and counseling is quite difficult. It requires research, understanding numerous positions of other people, and answering the question fully.
It’s becoming much rarer for a church not to have some form of a website, but there are still some churches which don’t have one. In addition, some churches websites are now getting old and dated, and at best, give off a bad impression, but at worse, aren’t mobile friendly (how most people access the web now) and have poor navigation, functionality, and rank worse in search engines. All this made me think of a little mini series of a couple of video guides how you (or anyone else) can set up a church website from scratch using one of two popular WordPress theme providers.
