CWS Podcast - Ep. 33: Advancing Your Website Without a Pastor

cws-podcast-logoIn the past I had the unfortunate opportunity to speak with churches that are between pastors. It is tough to watch them advance the Kingdom so slowly and cautiously. Many of their ministries freeze, especially anything dealing with the web. If you are a church elder or committee leader in your church; fret not. I will give you a few tips to keep advancing your online presence without a pastor in the pulpit. There are still plenty of opportunities to get people from clicking on your site to sitting in your seats.

What Not To Do Without a Pastor

  • Do not change anything on your site about your faith
  • Do hide the fact that you are without a pastor

What To Do Without a Pastor

  • Keep updating your site with the latest news and events
  • Prepare some changes and updates for your website
  • Start engaging more in social media

Action Item: If you are one of the many churches out there that is struggling as you are between pastors; first seek comfort in prayer with the Lord. Ask for His guidance as you move forward on projects for your website; with a list of draft pages and features ready for the new pastor. Follow my tips and prepare for a great season of harvest. Lastly, if you have any tips of your own, please leave a comment for others to benefit from.
