Who is Spradling Baptist Church?

Spradling Baptist Church, (Southern Baptist) exists to lead people to a life-changing relationship with Jesus. Their mission for their website is to create a platform that attracts as many visitors to their church as they believe God would bring.

The first thing people do when they want to find a church is look to see if they have a website. -Ron Morgan

What were the issues that were keeping their website from achieving its goals?

The website’s layout was uninspiring, lacked comprehensive information and failed to evoke the essence of a welcoming church that would entice visitors.

Some of the issues were:

  • The service times were relegated to a secondary position, receiving less emphasis and attention on the website.
  • The website showcased images without providing sufficient accompanying information.
  • They overlooked the elements that would attract younger families, failing to showcase what could captivate their interest.

Note, this five-minute video has been sped up to keep the video short but if you’d like to see more detailed step-by-step instructions remember we have a library of free video tutorials to help you build the website to meet your church or ministry goals.
