We here at REACHRIGHT are so happy to announce that Encounter Church has a new custom church website. Make sure to check it out.
It was fun from beginning to end to work with Brock and Amanda at the Encounter Church team. They came to us with an out of date website, and it was badly in need of a refresh.
Encounter Church has a deep commitment to small groups, missions and the arts. Consequently they wanted a website that reflected these commitments.
REACHRIGHT has helped our church reach far beyond the walls of our church. They are talented, down to earth and innovative. Therefore, we give them a well rounded and well deserved endorsement. Brock Lawley, Worship and Media Arts Director at Encounter Church of Palmyra
New Custom Church Website Features for Encounter Church
First, Encounter Church really wanted to shine was in their small group system. Encounter has a network of dozens of small groups. They wanted to make sure that users could easily find a group that meets their needs.
We helped them create a system that easily allows users to sort the available groups and find one on the right day of the week for their schedule.
Users click on a group they are interested in and can sign up for the group right on the spot. The group leader then receives an email notifying them of a new member and the follow up process begins.
They also wanted users to be able to easily purchase any resources they may need for the group. We created a link right there on each page.
Encounter is a missions church. They wanted to be sure that their new custom church website matched that.
We helped them to build a custom missions page where people can view videos about past mission trips and be inspired to sign up for a future trip.
Finally, it was very important that a visitor to the site would immediately see that Encounter has a commitment to being a creative church.
This is evident the moment someone lands on the homepage. The video background of real people from Encounter immediately grabs the users attention and makes them want to dig deeper in the site.
You only get one chance to make a first impression!
