A landing page is any web page, like the electronic display panel, that displays a specific PR (public relations) for a certain ministry or an event when people land on the page by their searches through the search engines, like Google. People are no longer memorizing church names, nor interested in religious practices. The traffic volume for “churches near me” is plummeting to non-existence in most regions. We need a new evangelism strategy to help people start a journey of belonging to a community rather than asking them to believe first to initiate their spiritual journey as a member of a congregation.
FIRST, the church websites won’t survive without being constructed with a responsive design. The main browsing platforms will be of more mobile devices. It will be safe to have designs and features geared toward smartphones with the capability of displaying the contents responsively on other devices like desktops and tablets, not the other way around.
Now’s is the time that all churches should be reviewing their digital ministry analytics, if there were any related projects, and see what worked for them over the last year. This analysis should be a starting point when you plan digital ministry in the new year. I have done my part of reviewing the web ministry analytics for 2019 and produced web ministry 10 commandments.

growing your church.
This guide will take you through the website design process and explain the benefits of
using WordPress as a website platform.
