Web Development

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.

The big differentiator you will find in working with Faith Growth is that while we have excellent technical abilities, we also have experience in serving on church staff or serving in church staff leadership positions. 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.
