Digital Ministry Coaching
In our 90-day coaching program, we help churches develop a solid process to handle their digital presence and attract more members without tech overwhelm.

In this is a rapidly changing arena – it is important to work with a partner who is up to date on the tools are as well as their most effective use. We understand the tools and best practices.

We are a one-stop shop for all of your web-site needs. Whether it is a simple ‘refresh’ or a complete revamp – we have the experience and capability to handle the project. All of our websites are built using the WordPress platform. After doing the research, we have found that WordPress provides the best overall tools for design and maintainability of small to medium size websites. WordPress makes it easy to add the content to your site to keep the information up to date.
Because we build on WordPress, you can rest assured that as your congregational needs change and grow, your church’s web site can easily meet the new needs. Since WordPress is a standard web development platform, your site is not a one of a kind custom site – it grows and changes right along with your congregation.

We understand the unique needs and challenges faced by the church and how digital media can be used to support the mission of the church.
Our value is not just in our areas of expertise, but in our proven process – Assess, Dream, Develop the plan taking into account the particular situation, goals and available resources, Implementation and Follow-up. A key part of the plan is the training to insure success. We are with you all the way!
We bring it all together. We speak ‘church’! We speak ‘geek’!
