New denominational website aims to inform, resource
The Church of the Nazarene has unveiled a new face for its website designed to resource newcomers to the denomination as well as longtime members and clergy.
“We are incredibly excited to unveil the new nazarene.org,” said Bill Sawyer, chief administrative officer and Board of General Superintendents’ chief of staff. “Our hope is that through the new website, we can better resource those who want to learn more about the impact Nazarenes are having in seeing lives transformed and our ongoing mission as a Wesleyan-Holiness people. At the same time, we hope the website can be a resource to equip and inform those who are already a part of our local churches.”
The new website layout intentionally focuses on visitors as analytics show more than half of the website traffic is driven by those who want to learn more about the church, from what Nazarenes believe to how to get involved.
The Church of the Nazarene's global reach is prominent in the new layout as well, with statistics of where the denomination’s churches operate in the world and links to each region's website. These features give visitors a chance to learn more about what is happening in the church worldwide.
The homepage also features articles from Nazarene News so visitors can read about what God is doing in the lives of His people, worldwide, through the various ministries of the Church of the Nazarene.
The site’s new Resource Center aims to assist anyone in the denomination with the videos, documents, PowerPoint presentations, and more for everything from VBS and sermon series to worship and promotional material. All resources are available digitally for free, making them cost-effective for the local church.
New resources will continue to be added, creating a comprehensive collection of Wesleyan-Holiness resources for clergy, the local church office, worship leaders, and small group leaders, providing them with sermon material, ideas, devotionals, lessons, and much more.
