Despite designing it twice and updating the site almost weekly, I realized I’ve never posted my own church’s Web site design. Head over to and check it out in the Design section of my portfolio, or visit the site live at

I record the sermons each week using my MacBook and built-in iSight camera, process the video with iMovie and export a QuickTime file to Google Video, where they host the videos for free. This is a great way to

1) increase site visibility,

2) get the message out there to people who may not visit the church website, and

3) get free video hosting for a large amount of streaming files

(and free is always good for a church’s stewardship of money).

My wife Jennifer maintains the church calendar through Google as well, and since she’s a wizard of all things Google, she skillfully integrated the online church calendar into the Website for me. This keeps folks updated on upcoming meetings, nursery schedules, etc.

Take a look at the site at or take a look at this:
