Church Web Design Checklist

There's a useful design checklist for church websites here ... I haven't dared assess our church website yet, but I think we're doing okay with the site designed by Paul Harvey for our freshchurch plant. Along with graphic design issues, the checklist asks useful questions like" "Is there a purpose statement displayed on the homepage which, while perhaps good at motivating your members, could be off-putting to some non-Christians because it is all about ‘reaching others for Christ’? Or do other aspects of the site give the impression ‘We are out to convert you’, rather than ‘We are a family of flawed real people, please come and share the journey with us.’" If so, deduct 15 points... a penalty only exceded in magnitude by having a non-functional splash page at the front of your site (-20)
