This site was posted recently by Frank Johnson on the website critique area of the discussion forum. It immediately got my attention not because it stands out graphically or has tons of pizazz, like many mega-church sites nowadays. Rather, it stands out because it just feels solid.
It is refreshing to see a thoroughly thought-out and functional site that “just works.” It validates as perfect XHTML 1.0 Strict and also sports perfect CSS. It’s running on the backbone of the Expression Engine CMS, allowing the denomination staff to make their own updates.
They have also focused specifically on the “social networking” aspect of the site, going beyond the brochure approach. Each news story has a Tell a Friend link, as well as one for Del.icio.us bookmarking. They’ve also employed the new standard feed icon, as agreed upon by Microsoft and Mozilla. All in all, this site feels very complete. Clearly, there was a lot of planning that went into this, with focus on function and usability as the first priority.
