Non-Profit Organization and Church Web Hosting
Skaggs Web Services was originally created to assist churches and non-profit ministries with consulting and internet technology-related projects or issues. Our passion and drive continues to increase with each new challenge we receive from our clients.
"If the church does not begin to encompass the online world in its ministry, it risks losing even more of its eroding influence in society." - George Barna
Why a Website?
The Church – Its main purpose is to share and spread the gospel of Jesus Christ and to worship God. So how can a website assist in fulfilling that purpose? In today’s information age, people are increasingly using the internet to obtain information about what is going on locally and around the world. As a church or ministry, you should take full advantage of this and offer information about your church or organization. The greatest benefit of having a website for your church or ministry is offering current information around the clock to new prospects and for your members. Some good, basic reasons for having a website:
† A website will enhance your ministry, providing information and support for your church body. When the doors close after business hours, your website will still be available around the clock.
† A website will dramatically extend the scope of your ministry by enabling new relationships with people and organizations outside your immediate location.
† A website will effectively communicate the Gospel of Jesus Christ, making it constantly available to anyone and everyone, thereby furthering the Kingdom of God.
