Want a new website? (in a day!)

Four training sessions planned to help you build a new easy to use and mobile-friendly website for your church

Hopefully by now you’ve seen the new and improved diocesan website. All of the coding for the site was designed so that any faith community in the diocese can use it to build their own site. It’s easy to learn, simple to use and extremely flexible. You can build a site that doesn’t look like a cookie cutter site but one unique to your needs.

We’ve set up four training sessions throughout the diocese to teach you the new platform. For current Digital Faith users, this training is designed to move your site to the new platform if you wish. But the training is not just for Digital Faith users, it is designed to give anyone who is interested the chance to build a new, easier to use, fully responsive and mobile-friendly modern site.

In most cases we will be able to help you get a new site up and running during the training. If your site is more complex or larger than most we may not finish it in a day, but you’ll have a great start on it by the time you leave. (And you’ll feel confident about what you have to do to finish it.

Here’s what you will need to bring with you to the training:

• A list of all of the pages you want on your site.
• Write the text for what you want each page to say.
• Bring any photos and illustrations that you’d like to use on each page
• Bring any documents you’d like people to be able to download from your site
• Bring a high resolution logo
• Bring a laptop (if you don’t have access to a laptop let us know so we can try to find one for you to use.)

All of these items need to be in electronic form, either on your laptop or on a flash drive.

You must register for training at least one week before your chosen training date in order to give us plenty of time to set up hosting space for your new site. We will contact all registrants before each training to make sure everything is ready for you by your training date. If you have any further questions, contact David Dreisbach at ddreisbach@diosohio.org.
