True Life Church
For the sake of transparency, we are members of True Life Church and all work was done pro-bono.
Around 2011 we took over maintaining their website. The site at that time was built using CMS Made Simple, however the company that built the site for them had modified the coding so much that it wasn’t possible to update that CMS without breaking the site. We recommended in late 2015 that the site be rebuilt using WordPress. They agreed however the stipulation was that it looked as close to their current site as possible. We agreed and rebuilt their entire site.
Two years later (late 2017) we approached the church leadership about changing the overall look and feel of their site. While the existing site served it’s purpose it wasn’t necessarily very functional, welcoming, or even stylish. We created a few demo pages to show them the potential it had, and with their approval we set out to remodel their current site.
Their site was built on WordPress and is powered by the Divi Theme. We used a custom child theme to handle all the custom styling, and functionality for their site. Everything from the styling to the overall way content is displayed on their site draws you in. The difference is noticeable, especially with important pages such as their “Here Now” which now has all the info a new visitor could need.
We encourage you to check out the before/after pictures below and then to go visit their site. Again, the difference is quite noticeable.
The website looks awesome and it looks a lot fresher. I love the volunteer section of the website!Jimmy Inman
