With the prolific use of cell phones, it is imperative that church websites are “mobile friendly.” When people visit a congregation’s site, it needs to be user friendly – easy to navigate and see the information displayed. A cluttered, hard to read website discourages visitors from staying and learning more about the Bible or the congregation.
While many sites are designed to accommodate both computers and phones (and some not so much), there are almost always adjustments that need to be made to fix text and image sizes, as well as layout issues.
Check your church’s website on a phone or, while designing it on a computer, check to see how it looks on a “mobile view.” Some design platforms have this capability built in. If not, you can use the Google Chrome browser to check it. Simply visit the website using Chrome, right click on the page, scroll down and click on “Inspect.” In the new window that opens to the right, look at the top menu and click the icon that looks like a cell phone (see image below).
