What a joy and honor it is to be serving Grace Fellowship with a brand new Church Plant Website! We had such a fun time consulting with Matt Cromer and Ray Paxton the lead pastors for Grace Fellowship. They both are truly men of vision and purpose. They look to lead as many people to Jesus as possible in the Cape Girardeau area where they are planting. There is a lot that is special for us here at REACHRIGHT when we are able to help a church plant or a new start up church. We love being a big part of the outreach and growth strategy for any new church for sure. Interestingly enough though, most of the REACHRIGHT team has actually been a part of a church plant staff or has planted churches themselves.
We know what it is like to start a church from the ground up experiencing the challenges, joys, and impact that can come in this endeavor. Our team admires and appreciates the faith that each pastor has to have to step out to build a church from the ground up in a community that may be brand new to them all together.
Matt and Ray are living out their faith and are really putting their feet to the things they know they have to do as a church planting pastors to be successful. One of the steps they knew they had to take right away even before officially holding services was to get a great Church Plant Website up and running. Matt and Ray were told by others to play it cheap and to just do a template. However, they understood they needed go above and beyond that approach with something branded that would help them stand out in the crowd of other churches folks could choose from in their area. They took the plunge and invested in something more custom with REACHRIGHT for their church plant website!
Grace Fellowship Church Plant Website features
The website we designed for them is simple yet well branded. It is welcoming and casts their vision really well also. One of the strategies we recommended and carried out when designing their content was to have a lot of “calls to action” allowing visitors on the site to respond by filling out a form after being compelled by the website’s content. You can see this on the “about” and “connect” pages. Matt and Ray wanted to not only highlight the church they are launching, but be able to interact with people from the website too. The website also has an online giving page for people who would love to support this great new work. The REACHRIGHT team is also excited to activate their sermons and calendar pages as soon as the church starts to hold services!
