Website Development Packages

No website? Let us help.

Let us help you build your website. We’ve provided tools and expertise to help more than 880 United Methodist churches establish new websites in the past two years.

Website Development Packages are for local United Methodist churches that do not currently have a website or would like to start over with a fresh, modern website to reach those in your community looking for a new church home.

All three of our Website Development Package options include the following core offerings:

  • One year of our SILVER web hosting package (learn more about hosting levels at UMCchurches.org)
  • One year of domain name registration (new domains only)
  • One year of ID Protection
  • Pre-designed WordPress templates for easy development of your new website
  • Five email accounts connected to your domain
  • 5GB of storage
  • Zip files of website and social media resources

United Methodist Churches who wish to replace their current website with a WordPress site may also apply. You can transfer your present URL, but please understand that you will have to rebuild your entire website on WordPress. Transferring a URL does not mean that the content transfers with it. All pages and functions will have to be rebuilt. Please consider this carefully before you apply.

If your church is a current UMCom web hosting customer, you will only be eligible for the free online training portion of the grant and add-on services that are available.

Learn more about our three Website Development Package options and add-on services in our Web Development Package Guide.

Important Notes

  • Basic computer skills and some understanding of uploading content to website templates will be needed to complete the course and build your website. Make sure those taking the course and/or acting as your church website coordinator(s) have these skills before you apply.
  • Central Conference churches: We are currently accepting applications for Episcopal Area offices only
  • If you are a two or three point charge and want to have separate websites for each church, you will need to fill out a separate application for each church.
