Communication is key to community. The Christian church — the Community of Christ — has two basic functions: to encourage and support those within the community, and to share the message of Christ with those outside the community. Both of these functions are heavily dependent on communication. The opportunity to strengthen communication and community by using the Internet led to the vision for OurChurch.Com.
OurChurch.Com was founded in 1996 by brothers Paul and Mark Steinbrueck out of a desire to make it easy and affordable for every Christian church to have a website. To do this we developed one of the first online web builders. We continued to innovate by creating one of the first Christian search directories, adding custom web design services, developing search marketing services, and much more. Through it all we have always treated our members more like friends and ministry partners than customers.
Today, OurChurch.Com is the premier “one stop shop” for Christian website services where organizations can get website hosting, design, search marketing, and advertising services all at the same place. We provide website services to more than 11,000 Christian churches, schools, ministries, businesses, and families. We continue to grow and develop innovative new services, while staying true to our mission, vision, and core values.
