Professionally designed WEBSITES FOR SMALL CHURCHES THAT ARE BEAUTIFUL ON EVERY DEVICE:
Top 3 reasons to build your church website with One Wheel Marketing
1) Most church website builders know how to market to churches, but not to the rest of the world
Anyone can build a website that performs poorly. It takes years of expertise in online communication best practices to design an experience that attracts new visitors and offers a pleasing experience for members. We've been working with organizations since the infancy of the world wide web and know what it takes to grow your church online.
2) We serve churches out of passion, not for profit
Building websites for churches is our ministry. Our other ministry is starting a church. We feed our families making websites for small businesses and startups. We make websites for churches because we love Jesus and believe in small churches, not because it is a lucrative market.
3) We design on the most beautiful, lowest maintenance, easiest-to-use CMS (content management system)
Most "church website builders" build on WordPress – a high-maintenance, hacker-vulnerable, difficult-to-learn platform. Some church website companies make their own CMS. This is not better. We build on rock-solid CMS Squarespace for beautiful, maintenance-free, mobile-friendly website you can easily learn and grow with your team of volunteers.

Yes, your new hosting costs $40/month. You can pay quarterly or annually for simple billing.

After the site is built, you get full control and you can make improvements and update information easily. You can do this with current volunteers or by forming a team. See below for optional team coaching.
