We built this layout with a "section-based" approach. That way you can use as much (or as little) content as you'd like to serve your church. Click here to take a look for yourself.
Let's walk thru the sections together:
- Welcome Header - Use a text overlay for church name, times and a call to action for for your viewers. On our most popular themes, the background can be an image, rotator, or looping video, ask your representative about the latest updates.
- What to Expect - We recommend using icons from your site's current icon font to keep it consistent. This section sets apart important information in an eye-catching, visual, and easy-to-digest way.
- Ministry Tiles - This section was designed to have a lot of impact and include animation, to draw the viewer in. The tile image will zoom on mouse hover, and the content will open below the clicked item. Can be customized with any variety of content.
- Featured Event - This section pulls the event image, title, date/time, description and highlights your next event that would be great for new people to attend.
- Meet Our Pastors - Using our Monklet system, this layout pulls in staff photos and detail. Help your site visitors get to know and recognize the faces they will see when they visit your church.
- Video or Story - Use an Article to highlight a welcome video, a story, a testimony, missionary, outreach event, or anything else you'd like your visitors to see.
- Map Section - Don't forget to make it easy to find your church!
