Oakhurst Presbyterian Church in Decatur Georgia, hired us to revamp their old website. It was about as old as html itself. They needed an website that could communicated current and upcomming events to their congregation in a new way. Let’s face it, everyone uses a smart phone or tablet to get info. This was the goal of re-designing the Oakhurst site.
We wanted to make sure Oakhurst was going to use their site far into the future. So we met multiple times with their committee to ensure the design and the idea was in sync with what they were looking for.
What we came up with was a “responsive” site that not only could be easily navigated on a traditional desktop, but completely mobile. The design was integrated with WordPress and created to be a highly functional mobile site. Responsive to where the visitor was going to go and where (Oakhurst) wanted them to navigate to.
We also integrated: Audio, Video, and PDF capabilities for Sermons. This was a key ingredient for their community to either download, listen, or watch sermons when they couldn’t make it to church on Sunday.
Calendar events were also a crucial requirement in communicating with it’s members. So we put it on the front page as a countdown. We felt this was extremely important as this was the first thing member saw on mobile devices.
As Oakhurst grows what they offer their members, we graciously installed a commerce program so they can raise and donate money to needy charities as they see fit.
