A large church serving the metro Atlanta area, Mount Pisgah
wanted to make its Web site a more effective vehicle for communicating
information to current as well as potential members.
Merrill-Hall helped create a development strategy that allowed
the church to accomplish its goals within its specified budget.
We recommended that the church leverage the data stored in
its existing internal databases to provide information on
church activities to the public via the Web. Our staff then
integrated these databases with the Web site to make sure
that the information on church events was displayed where
appropriate. We also created a simple content management system
that enables the heads of various church ministries to update
their portions of the Web site, without having to know HTML.
Our systems give staff the ability to update event information
across the Web site in one step: When a designated ministry
administrator changes information about events within that
ministry in one portion of the site, the system automatically
updates relevant calendars and other appropriate sections
throughout the Web site. Our efforts have helped give Mount
Pisgah a dynamic Internet presence that keeps its members
up-to-date on church activities while making the job of the
staff a little easier.
