Slide01

This past week I lead a 45 minute discussion in our weekly church staff meeting on “Best Practices for Church Website Design.” We looked at four areas that every church needs to do well as it goes through a website redesign. Click here to see the short presentation with slides of screen shots of church websites: Best Practices of Website Design. We closed the presentation at each screenshot and looked at the church websites live together, making notes and raising questions as part of our planning discussions.

Our church is moving through a redesign of our church logo, the creation of a completely new website, and a move to video sermons all this Fall. Clear communication, team collaboration on all the changes we’re making, and reminding ourselves of why we are doing these changes as our church becomes more guest-oriented has been a really important part of the process for us.

2018 Fall CPC NEW MEMBER ORIENTATION CLASS.jpg

One of my projects during my Study Leave was to completely redesign the New Members Class for Christ Presbyterian Church because this week is the first time I lead this class since joining CPC as its Senior Pastor. The New Members Orientation Class is based off of some of the material of my predecessor at CPC, but a very large portion of it was my work and all of it was my design. It is setup for a three-hour class that includes a meal.

For those who have explored designing New Members Class’s for churches I am happy to share what I have developed here. Click here to download the Power Point for the class: 2018 Fall CPC NEW MEMBER ORIENTATION CLASS. Please feel free to modify it quite a bit to work with your own needs and your church’s history. If you have any questions comment here or message me.

This sermon series spans seven weeks and looks at two vital questions: who is Jesus? and why is he good news? To answer this question I look at seven encounters that Jesus has with seven very different individuals in the gospels. On this blog you will be able to see the PowerPoints I use in this series and listen to audio sermons from it (our church is in the process of moving to video).
