An interesting article written by Pastor David Roach describes how church websites are being underutilized by congregations. The article cites a few reasons for this, including limited time to work on the website and limited volunteer capabilities.
"There is nothing wrong with using a church website to simply give directions to the church or state the church's beliefs," McConnell added. "However, we must realize that more and more people expect to be able to interact online without having to drive or make a phone call to the church."
The article goes on to state that amongst churches that have websites (and most do), “nearly half of churches with websites (42 percent) update them only once a month or less.”
