This was our old site design:
This is our new site design:
A volunteer team consisting of 4 guys from my church have been working in our spare time on a new website for our church, after over a year of after hours work here and there we have finally made it public. The new site has many new features: Video, an improved search feature, a calendar of events, updated resources and categories among other things.
The old website was done strictly using PHP. The new site we chose to utlize Joomla! based off the database integration, the use of modules, and the ease of updating via the front and back end admin areas. If your church's web presence utilizes a database for sharing sermons and the like, Joomla! may be an option you want to look at when it comes time to update your site. Joomla! is open source as well.
