training is offered throughout the year at no cost to churches and associations. These classes will train you on the basic and advanced functions of the content management system.
Are you a website beginner and need assistance in developing a website for your church? We offer free classes to create and update a basic church website using WordPress or Wix. We will learn the basics of website terminology and design to assist you in creating your church's website. Below is a list of the classes that will be held in Cary, N.C., and other locations. Registration is required below. Each class in the Cary location can only host 12 students, so sign up now in order to reserve your spot.
Which class should you take? If you are new to website management then please take the Wix website class since it's easier to set up a new website with their pre-made website themes and applications. If you have more experience with websites then Wordpress is your choice since you will need some background in setting up your own themes and plugins. If cost is a factor then Wordpress is less expensive which is about $70/year for a theme and support updates. Wix is all inclusive for about $150/year.
