Is your church website struggling to keep up? We design custom church websites that can handle the needs of growing congregations.
Churches, and their websites, must serve many audiences and multiple purposes. If your website wasn’t designed to prioritize and address each one, you probably often find yourself frustrated that your site can’t accommodate all of the communications demands.
After working inside churches and partnering with ministries, we know the challenges that church communicators face.
We use our experience to build for your long-term success, creating a church website that meets your needs today, and has room to grow with you. You’ll be able to stop fighting with your website so you can focus on your goals.
"We wanted an agency that would treat us less like a number and more like individual clients. I was thrilled to find Landslide. They were quick to get the process started. They listened, asked questions, and really cared about our goals."
Not sure where to start? We take out the guesswork of church web design and development.
We’ve worked with churches of all sizes, and can help you balance the needs of all ministries and campuses, while serving both members and seekers through your digital presence.
Are you a multi-site church? We know multi-site churches have unique communications challenges that affect how your website is structured and maintained. Using our best practices from working with large, multi-campus churches, we can help you determine the most effective approach that streamlines communication and eliminates redundancy.
The key to our process? We start every website project with a LaunchPlan. It’s how we ensure that we are good stewards of your resources and develop a website that advances your mission.About the LaunchPlan
"Each person at Landslide has immense knowledge in their field. I asked probably 1,000 questions during the time we worked together and they always gave me an answer and were readily available to help."

Have a question about church website development?
We have a philosophy for church websites that is the result of working on staff and in partnership with churches for over a decade. We infuse these best practices into all of church website design projects:
- Strategy Driven – We start by defining a clear strategy so your website will help you further your mission. It’s how we ensure we are good stewards of your resources and deliver a significant return on your investment.
- Outward Focus – Growing churches are outwardly focused, prioritizing the needs of first- and second-time visitors or “seekers,” so that it’s easy for them to find the information they need and get connected. We help you navigate critical design and development decisions so that we create the optimal user experience for visitors.
- Next Steps – Your church website should help people take the next steps on their spiritual journey and get plugged in. We work with you to identify the key steps you want your audience to take, and orient your site around these markers.
- Efficiency – Based on your needs, we identify solutions that strike the right balance between user experience, loading time and administrative burden.
- Longevity & Scalability – We design with the future in mind, creating an infrastructure that is flexible and scalable so that your website meets your needs for many years to come.
We’re a small, agile team, and our goal is to make the web design process enjoyable for everyone involved. Our leadership team is hands-on and directly involved in every project, so you know you’re getting our best work from team members deeply invested in the future of our company and our clients.
As the best church website design companies know, every church is unique, but there are also key website features and functionality that just about every church needs or would love to have. To ensure your church has the critical ingredients that lead to a successful digital presence, we include the following in every church website we design and develop:
- Customized WordPress CMS – Every site is custom-built on a WordPress foundation that we’re continuously updating and optimizing.
- Custom Design – We create a custom website design, based on your church branding. We don’t use templates, so you know your site is completely designed for your specific needs, preferences and target audiences.
- Strategic Site Map and Navigation – The first step of our process is meeting with your team to discuss your specific needs and goals. Based on your priorities, we recommend an easy to navigate site map.
- Page Builder Tool – Our custom Page Builder Tool gives you the control to quickly and easily add, remove and edit content without compromising the design of the site. No coding or advanced knowledge needed, and your site is extremely flexible so that it can accommodate your changing needs.
- Unlimited Pages – Create landing pages for all of your ministries and programs.
