Jeff Fuller said his church didn’t have a website before they tried Hosted Church — they had given another Web hosting company a shot but it hadn’t worked out.
With Hosted Church, a service provided by TAB Media, getting a website up and running was “a good experience for us,” said Fuller, pastor of Rockford Baptist Church. “It didn’t take long for them to put together a template for me and send me something to approve.”
At the beginning, James Hammack, digital services manager for TAB Media, personalized Rockford Baptist’s website with the colors, information and images they chose and continued to update it for them as needed — all part of the services offered by Hosted Church.
But along the way Fuller also got Hammack to teach him how to update the site himself, so now he can handle weekly changes on his own.
“I’m able to go in and edit whatever I need to,” Fuller related. “It has been very easy to work with, very easy to manipulate.
“James has been great. He has shared his expertise with me and helped me put things together.”
Someone from TAB Media also emails Fuller every month to check in and make sure he’s got everything he needs.
Fuller said he appreciates the relationship and is grateful that Hosted Church is run by TAB Media.
“I’m glad we do it through TAB Media because I can trust it. I know that it’s secure, protected and everything,” he noted, adding the church website now offers an online giving option.
‘Always on call’
Hammack said Hosted Church takes good care of the sites it creates as well as the people who create content for them. Hosted Church can make changes or teach church staff how to do it. Either way someone is always on call to help in an emergency.
With Hosted Church, a low annual cost covers those services plus the purchase of a domain name. It also offers regular security scans and backups to keep data safe.
