Take A Tour of Joomla
If you are interested in the concept of a Joomla website, but have some questions about its capabilities, how about taking a tour of Joomla? Please call (847-477-4266) or email me (gmarsh@gmmedia.us). I can, at very short notice, set up an online demo and walk you through many of the features of a Joomla website. That's also a good way of getting your questions answered about the advantages of a content management system.

sm_goodnews_siteGood News Church of Mosinee, WI
Good News wanted a website more versatile & colorful than the one they had. Joomla provided them the options they wanted at low cost. In addition to some of the standard fare (audio/video playback, photo galleries, front page banner pictures) their site has convenient playback/downloading of weekly sermon files. A registration package which will work really well for children's and youth programs, plus other church events will be added soon.

sm_kah_runRegistration Site for A Run
One of Kids Against Hunger satellites in Minneapolis wanted to host a 10K/5K run (yes, like in "RUN") to raise money for a food packaging event in July. They needed a registration site where groups/individuals could choose from several races, select free shirt sizes and pay for their participation. The site worked great! 569 runners participated in 10K/5K runs and 89 children in 1/4 and 1/2 mile events. All told they raised enough money to package 125,000 meals for hungry children.

sm_emmanuelEmmanuel Baptist Church
This church website was re-designed in 2009 using Joomla and features a template whose background image can be easily changed to fit the season. The site contains a comprehensive church calendar, Google mapping, a front page advertising image rotator in addition to ministry articles.

sm_kahKids Against Hunger: Semi-Customized Group
The template site contains standardized information about Kids Against Hunger: logo, videos, FAQs, articles, etc. But each satellite is able to customize their site's look & organization as well. They can preview design template variations (which change the look of the entire site) on the test site (www.gmmediatest.us/kah). And add pictures, events and information specific to their own satellite.

Turnkey AV Systems for Church Plants

yamaha_mixer_loresOne of the most expensive and difficult-to-control aspects of starting a new church is providing adequate sound and video equipment for the contemporary practice of worship. Three difficult problems face every church plant:

  1. Assembling a complete & compatible sound equipment package without breaking the budget.
  2. Learning to use that equipment to provide pleasing and musical sound reinforcement in facilities that often are acoustically challenging.
  3. Finding ways to load-in, load-out, transport and store that equipment every week.
