Choosing a Theme
You can expatiate the process of building your website by having a WordPress theme already picked out. A theme is the general look and framework of your website. Having this picked out already will save you time and billable hours in the design process. Once a theme is chosen, the design process will go very quickly.
You can find quality WordPress themes at the following sites.
The next thing you need, if you don’t already have one, is a domain name. A domain name is what you see in the address bar of your web browser (http://yourdomainname.com) There are many extension options available for domain names, so if your .com is unavailable you could also use .net, .org, etc.
Web hosting means the website that actually hosts the WordPress software for your website. You can often bundle domain names and web hosting for a discounted price.
I have had the incredible honor of being asked to completely rebuild our church’s website. Charlotte Assembly of God‘s old website was a mismatch of pages that had no consistency in theme or appearance and full of out dated information. Now they have a beautiful website with a modern theme for the entire site. We have added videos, event pages, weekly podcasts and integrated social media. They chose to use the Risen theme by ThemeForest which is a a mobile-friendly responsive design with support for multiple locations, staff profiles and church news.

We are really enjoying our new website! We love the clean crisp look of it as well as the functionality and flexibility of it. The process of building the site was fairly painless (coming from a non techy). As with any new endeavor, there were a few bugs to be worked out along the way but with Brian’s help, we were up and running much sooner than I anticipated.
I also have the privilege of building our new men’s ministry site. This site is full of social media integration, search engine optimization and recurring event listings.
“Brian Caruthers has been an invaluable asset assisting me with the task of developing a means of marketing and communication for the Men’s Ministry I am leading. Initially Brian shared insight into the most efficient means of communication, providing me with a comparative analysis of a web page located on our Church’s existing website or purchasing a WordPress theme and creating our own web page. He walked me through the pros and cons of each option. Once I made my decision and provided Brian with the WordPress theme he expertly created our webpage. His response and turnaround time have been timely, and his suggestions have been well thought out and informative. Our webpage is currently under construction as Brian is awaiting me to provide him with some additional content. He is then going to assist me in creating and then linking our webpage communication to addition avenues of social media including Facebook and Twitter. Brian helped me navigate waters I am completely unfamiliar with and he has my recommendation and gratitude.
Thank you Brian,”
Rodgers Roost is a bed and breakfast in Johannesburg Michigan. They were originally using Yahoo.com’s web hosting which is antiquated and has poor support. I was able to rebuild them a new site with a custom background to match the wood paneling in their B and B. They also have better hosting, custom email and 24-7 web hosting service.
Pro Metal Roofs is a private contractor specializing in metal roofing. This is their first website, so we started from scratch. The content of the site is a work in progress, but it built to be mobile friendly and to give lots of great photographic examples of the business owners work.
The P B and J Network is a network of podcasts that I produce. I built this website as an alternative to the three individual podcast websites I was maintaining. This website is built using the Mystique WordPress theme and utilizes plugins such as All in One SEO Pack, Blubrry PowerPress, Jetpack and SpeakPipe.
