Websites are often the first impression of your church. They are a great way to share your church’s message, ministries and upcoming events and welcome newcomers. Most churches today already have a website, but many are in serious need of a “revival”. There are countless numbers of dull and outdated websites all over the Internet. Extend Platform can empathize. Extend is a web-based Content Management Solution (CMS) that provides the necessary tools for ministries to design websites using templates that can be tailored specifically for your church. To help these outdated websites, it was time for Extend to have an update of its own and demonstrate its capabilities.
Scott Dixon and Melissa Church are Extend Specialists and have worked together at ACS Technologies for over a decade and they knew Extend’s potential. Under the leadership of Product Lead, Mark Williams, they began to pursue a new future for Extend. Pushing forward with a desire to improve what Extend offers to our clients, they have made impressive enhancements in design and usability and the new Extend website reflects this.
Our goal is simple. We want to help churches share their message in the digital age without breaking the bank. If you want a modern website, we offer a variety of active templates and designs with highly competitive pricing. Extend professionals will work with you directly to determine what you need, what you can afford, and how to implement your plan. If your church doesn’t have a have media department, a webmaster to build and maintain a website, or a large budget allocated to technology, Extend Platform is a great option. You can take a deep breath (sigh) and relax now.
We can help with all of your website needs, or just fill in the blanks with what your website is missing. The first step is to determine what your needs are. If you need a new platform, you’d select a template. With that template, we can revise an existing Extend website you currently have or build and tailor a new one for you. As part of your plan, you may decide to let us manage your content. This can be as simple as sending us your church bulletins on a regular basis (in advance of the events), to update in your new, custom website, or something more. Our webmasters understand the technology needed to help support your church. We have skilled professionals in design, graphics, coding, and a library of legal images we can share with you, if you choose to partner with us.
Find a Solid Choice
Pricing for our services varies depending on what you select. Our most popular option for the small to medium sized church is SiteExtend Plus. With this option, you can get an updated website, with 20 channel pages, and five administrative users for less than $1,000 a year. That includes a one-time setup fee, a monthly hosting fee, and Webmastering services (this is where we update content and maintain the site for you).
ACS Technologies understands ministry and the important work your church is trying to accomplish. If you think you need a new website, you probably do. Extend wants to be your website solution. Please visit our site, we are here to help!
I’ve been using the Extend Platform for just over two years and, during that time, it has consistently been one my favorite applications to use. It’s very user-friendly and full of features. I’ve gotten countless compliments on our website since we launched. Extend Platform has allowed us to set up a fantastic website that people enjoy visiting and, in turn, has boosted engagement at church both online and in person. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a new web platform. – Devin Rubink
