Having a decent church website can make or break the first impression someone has on your church or organization. I have to admit; I do judge a book by its cover. You can tell a lot about what a church values just based off their website and the words that they choose to put on it. Many churches can’t afford a designer or pay someone regularly just to make updates. Which is why more and more churches are building web pages themselves using a WordPress theme. When trying to find a quick simple solution to website building, I have found Beaver Builder to be the BEST bang for the buck. I’m in the middle of doing a church plant, and I can’t afford to pay a designer at this point. However, I also recognize that more and more people are using websites to get information and I wanted to create an avenue for people to partner with us. So, I used Beaver Builder myself to design a web page. Check out the video below to see what I built.
Beaver Builder is great because it offers a quick drag and drop option. For example, say you want to place a calendar, map, or blog post on the front page. It’s literally as simple as dragging and dropping it into place and then making the appropriate edits. With Beaver Builder, you only need to have a rudimentary understanding in order to make a high-quality website.
Beaver Builder offers many premade themes that you can either drop your customizations into, or you can add your own elements. You aren’t limited to one way of designing. Literally, if you can think of it, you can do it with the power of Beaver Builder and WordPress.
Beaver Builder will set you back only a few hundred dollars. However, in my opinion, it’s worth it. You will be saving a lot of money in the long run by not paying a developer or a designer. If you purchase the $199.00 version you get great support from their developers to help answer potential problems or bugs.
Overall, I would say that Beaver Builder is a good value and you can click the link below to learn more about the product on their website.
