I have seen many different people wonder what to use for a church’s website and there are a ton of options out there, including E-zekiel that has a great product for you to go from nothing to something great, quickly and easily. My own push for some time was for churches to have blogs on their site and of course the default blogging Content Management System out there is WordPress.
The unfortunate part is that I gave them a great idea, but the solution of installing and maintaing it was on someone else.
WordPress Driven Church
WordPress Driven Church may be the greatest thing for a someone who wants to recommend a church using WordPress without actually doing it themselves. Not only do they provide a detailed and simple step-by-step guide that starts with picking a theme to adding content, but they have great examples of well done WordPress church websites in their gallery and a blog with plugins that may be very relevant for your church. Their tagline is:
Your guide to sharing your church’s story with WordPress, the world’s Number One web publishing tool.
While I would not necessarily push everyone to use WordPress, especially churches without a goal of blogging consistently or a church without someone that will maintain the website, WordPress can be a great, cost-effective solution for any church.
What other tools and resources have you found that are great for churches who want to use WordPress?
