These past few months we have continued to serve a diverse group of ministries with full custom designs and new design styles. A few of our recent favorites were for a large Methodist church in Texas, a large evangelical charismatic church in California, a brand new Acts 29 Network church plant in Australia, and another A29 church in California. We also did our annual re-launch for our good friends over at the Exponential Conference, the largest gathering of planters on the planet. Lastly, we did a full color customization for ChurchWorks Network, a brand new Baptist church planting network based in Texas.
At Church Plant Media we have served hundreds of churches for over 10 years. In this time we have learned a few things about what a great church domain name should look like and how it should function. To help you sort through the options and opinions, we present these 5 tips for you to consider when making your domain name purchase.
On Friday, April 8, 2011, at 11:30am, our Partner Support Specialist, Tanner Hubbert and his wife Lisa, welcomed their very 1st child into the world. Lyndon weighed in at 7lbs, 3oz. The brand new Momma, baby, and Poppa are all doing great.
Some months ago we posted about our highly anticipated CMS Refresh. Since then we’ve been remodeling and reworking what was already an easy-to-use system, into an even easier-to-use system. Good things take time and great things take more time. So while you are waiting for the upcoming CMS goodness, we wanted to give you a few more screenshots to let you see what we have cooking in the kitchen.
Kevin Giddings loves the gospel. Anyone who knows him has experienced his deep love for Jesus, his family and his local church. Although Kevin has been serving as our Partnership Director for more than a year now, his relationship with our team dates back much further than that. Along with his full-time sales duties with Church Plant Media, Kevin has also been on staff part-time with Harvest Community Church. Harvest is a multi-site church in the Southwestern region of PA.
We usually wait a number of months before featuring our favorite designs, but we did not want another day to pass without sounding the horn about the new full custom design for our friends at The Master's College. A little over 1 year ago, we were given the opportunity to redesign their Undergrad Admissions site and a sister site for their Resolved Conference. Although we have only been providing the designs for their team to build, we have built a lasting friendship with their team. We are currently in the process of a redesign for Grace to You, John MacArthur's radio ministry. We'll be sure to give a shout out once that design is live.
One of the primary differences between Church Plant Media and other web development companies is that our team has made a commitment only to serve gospel-centered churches and church-based organizations. After years of serving churches from different denominational backgrounds and heritages, we felt that a litmus test was needed to define our partnerships. So in early 2009, we decided to draw a line in the sand and we created a Statement of Belief.
We hope all is well with you and your church during this Christmas season. In the midst of all the Christmas parties and family gatherings, we wanted to draw your gaze to the Savior. He left the glories of Heaven to take on the form of a servant, wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger. This baby who was miraculously born from a virgin is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. With joy, we gladly announce with the angels…
When we originally designed the Church Plant Media Content Management System, our goal was to create an easy-to-use system that would serve church plants, existing churches, and church planting organizations. Since our core focus is to serve gospel-centered churches, we chose to develop specific modules that every church needs. Now that hundreds of churches are using our system, we felt it was time for a system refresh. The best part? It is available to all churches on the new Church Plant Media CMS at no additional charge.
Our bloggage has been bare these past few months, but we are still very much alive and well. We have been devoting a ton of time to our new CMS refresh, and we think you'll like what you see when we release it in a few weeks. Over the past 4 months, we launched nearly triple the number of sites than we had launched at this time last year. Out of these new sites, we wanted to share 12 of our favorite designs. We are also stoked to announce the re-launch of the Exponential Conference, the largest gathering of church planters on the planet.
