Class Notes - Intro
So why do I think I have the authority to speak on church websites?
I have been doing websites for over 10 years and have lost count on how many church websites I have done.
In my seven years on the mission field I was doing websites and graphic design.
- At CCBCE
- For Hungary CC churches
- In Poland and England
It has been fun combining all that knowledge in to helping churches reach more people.
Why am I doing this class?
Seven years ago, when I was doing the CCBCE websites, I was running the stats and found someone from Kenya had typed into google “how do I know the Word of God is true” and found the gospel message I had put on the website.
I have been hooked ever since.
This class isn’t really about websites.
- It is about telling people about Jesus.
- Getting people into heaven.
- Reaching people via the internet.
- That is my vision.
My vision is to reach people,
My vision is to take Jesus to people via the internet,
My vision is to make you successful in reaching people, and consequently get people into heaven. With just a few hours worth of work you can literally reach millions of people via the internet, and YOU don't even have to do it.
You have people attending your church who will do it for you.
I am not fooling around here.
My purpose is NOT to tell you some "tricks" to make your websites better, although I can do that.
My purpose is NOT to help you make a really cool website, although I can do that.
My purpose is NOT to help you understand how google works, although I can do that.I only have one purpose, introduce people to Jesus and getting them into heaven.
You can use your website to get people into heaven. People you have never considered reaching before. You currently reach your 100-700 church members. With just a few hours work you can reach millions.
You can use your website to get people into heaven. That is what I am going to teach tonight.
We are going to learn three things:
#1. How to make your website "easy to read" – Reaching this culture
#2. How to attract more visitors to your church through your website
#3. How to use your website to reach the world
