Life is a Premium WordPress Theme available from ThemeForest.net that can work well for a church or ministry website. This is not the same as the Life Site Template mentioned on last week’s post. The advantages it has for a church website include the large slider on the home page and up to 6 boxes to highlight specific events, ministries or resources. The home page has 3 different designs that can be used if desired. The them also comes with detailed documentation to help when installing and customizing the theme. Like many of the themes available at ThemeForest, it can be had for just $35.
Genesis Church in Spokane, WA used WordPress in the design of their new church website. They used the Life Site Template (not a WordPress theme) from ThemeForest.net. Pastor Josh indicated that the footer was customized and the site template has not easily worked with some plugins but clearly it has made for an excellent look.
Parkside Baptist Church in Mesquite, TX uses WordPress. They used the Resolution Theme featured on this site a couple days ago. Resolution can be purchased for $35 from ThemeForest.net. A home page builder comes with the Resolution theme and Parkside made good use of the jQuery slider and the six content boxes for their home page.
Resolution is a WordPress theme from THB Themes that works well for churches. It’s clean, simple, has unlimited sidebars and colors, uses Google fonts, custom widgets, custom post types and 2 jQuery slideshows. It’s available for $35 at ThemeForest.net. On Thursday we’ll feature a church that used this theme for their site for an excellent look and feel.
Real Life Christian Church in Chesapeake, VA uses WordPress for their recently re-designed website. They used the Studeo WordPress Theme available from ThemeForest. I really like the look of that theme and it works great for churches or ministries. The site is currently under construction as they are still in the process of fine tuning it.
Passion for God is a network of people who work to equip God’s people for works of service and their website runs on WordPress! Paul Cook let us know about the site. It’s using the Paradigm Premium WordPress Theme available through ThemeForest. They’re also using EventBrite and WuFoo forms, two 3rd party solutions we wrote about a couple weeks ago here and here.
The WordPress Church Theme was designed by Chris Molitor and offers a pretty simple, straight-forward usage of WordPress for a church website. There are 5 color options, a theme options panel, and some sweet jquery effects such as hover navigation effects and an accordion-like sidebar. It offers some pretty basic social web integration as well. A very nice starter theme for a church on a budget!
