Creating a Learning Network for Kingdom Builders!

I've seen many church websites. They look like ordinary electronic brochures with ordinary organizational information. I don't mean to be fault-finding, but not many of them look business-like or professional, not very well organized or user-friendly, and nothing to attract an unsaved person to look for spiritual answers or attend the church. Can't I turn a website into a nationally and internationally powerful ministry tool (since it's out there on the world-wide web) and give people the answers they're desperately looking for even when they don't yet realize they're looking? Any ideas out there? How about I throw out a thought? Isn't a website a self-portrait of the person or organization it represents (just like a job is a self-portrait of the person who did it)? And in the realm of the church, isn't the person being represented Jesus Himself, and the organization His Body the Church? I realize I asked an intense question, but really, what are the best ways to have His Portrait, Heart, and Body show up?

My opinion as a web developer, is that a church website is in many situations a brochure for the ministry in question, as it is often used in that sense. However this approach is one sided. The other side to this approach is to realize that a website is more than just a brochure or tract, and that it can be utilized as a full time ministry tool where people looking for a church can get information, but the congregants and other members of the body of Christ can collaborate and support one another. In many ways a properly designed website can become a "living" entity, as the community around it grows.
Alright, Dan, what a tremendous thought to consider a church website as a living entity. That's an eye opener!!! I'd like to read further how you spell this out in practical terms. Bet it would greatly encourage many pastors and church techies.
Blessings, Dave
Church websites, christian community sites reach christians around the world.
Laura states a fact that I think a lot of churches miss. Your website has the potential to be seen by millions of people world wide. ..

That is why it is SO important that you show the true heart of the ministry the best way you can.
