In my previous post, I talked about the three distinctive characteristics of a Mobile-friendly church website: 1. Responsive; 2. Faster; 3. Continuous-flowing. Now, I’d like to talk about creating a Mobile-friendly church website faster.

Even though there are many venues available for constructing a website, I strongly recommend using the WordPress platform. It is not only free but superior when it comes to a Mobile-friendly church website. There is a ton of designs and solutions available for the use of the church website. The design of a site is referred to a theme and the solutions to the plug-ins in WordPress. There are free themes and certain paid themes targeting at a vertical market sold. Good news is that you don’t necessarily need those ones that you have to purchase. There are great themes for free that inherit the three distinctive characteristics of a Mobile-friendly church website. Check out my post on the top three (3) free WordPress themes for a good church website in 2018.

These themes help you get your site up and running faster. They are designed to be responsive to most devices and browsers, and user-friendly. The best part is that all the front-end design work is already done for you. The themes are being maintained periodically by a group of professionals. It’s like to hire a professional web-developer for free. The use of a right theme will reduce the website construction time by 90% or more. All you need to do is to learn how to create your own contents to be placed in the site. If you don’t have time for it, there are so many well-trained WordPress specialists competitively available in the market. One Google search will find them for you. My organization maintains a pool of such WordPress specialists toward churches’ web ministry. Use the form below to contact us for your needs in web ministries.
