Continuing our series on how to make your church website a destination, one of the things people pray and search for most is guidance.
Scripture tells us God gives us wisdom and guidance primarily in three ways:
- the bible (2 Timothy 3:16)
- the Holy Spirit (John 14:26)
- wise counsel of others (Proverbs 19:20)
In this post, we’re going to focus on the 3rd way, godly counsel, because it provides a great opportunity for you and your church to create content that is helpful for your church members, your local community and search engines.
