Resurrect is optimized for high resolution screens (ie. Retina® devices).
Ministry, Church or Chapel Websites
I discovered ChurchThemes.com when looking for a Premium Theme that would check all the boxes as provided to me by one of my clients. Things that were important to her and that Church Themes had all the bases covered were:
- Sermons by topic, book, series, speaker and date.
- Sermons as text, audio or video and podcasting support for sermons.
- Profiles for staff and leaders, photo galleries and blogging (great for church news).
- Events (with monthly calendar, recurrence, categories, maps and directions).
- Responsive mobile-friendly church theme.
- Real-time customization of your colors and fonts.
- Custom header images and footer widgets.
Church Content WordPress Plugin
The Church Content plugin helps you make your church website by adding powerful features to WordPress for publishing sermons, events, people and locations. You can create a sermon archive with sermons in text, audio, video and PDF formats.
Your media can be uploaded via WordPress or embedded from popular sites like YouTube, Vimeo and SoundCloud. You can organize sermons by topic, series, book and speaker. The Pro version of the Church Content plugin makes it easy to setup sermon podcasting on iTunes, Google Play and others!
Manage your church events with details for date, time and location. Events can be categorized and with Pro you can save time with automatically recurring events (e.g. “last Sunday of each month” or “every two weeks except holidays”). Other features include locations for sharing where and when you meet and staff profiles.
Church Content Pro adds even more features which you can read about below. What I recognized as being essential were the provided guides and videos that have step by step instructions to help you build your new church website.
For those seeking a new cutting-edge website design for their church, ministry or even a youth group, one of these 3 themes can get the job done for you. Before you decide, read my article on how to choose the right WordPress theme so you know all the variables you need to consider. Then take your time to go through the provided demo sites very carefully.
