When I first came across this site, I was immediately impressed. Despite its small width, it has quite a bit of impact. It makes good use of Flash, without being overly dependent on it. I also like the slogan “Based on a True Story.” My only problem is that the site navigation is done in Flash, which could be a possible accessibility issue. But, for the most part, it’s a very well done site. It’s XHTML 1.0 Strict, something not often seen with churches. It only has one tiny validation error due to a target=”_blank” (deprecated in XHTML 1.0 Strict).

    From a purely artistic perspective this site is crazy. It looks like an Inman site…or maybe bowman cause of all the blues. Great work indeed.

    I’m not crazy about the flash navigation either, but nice use of sIFR.

    I know i’m being picky, but I would change the navigation terminology b/c it sounds too “insider-lingo-ish”, which is common to church sites. I wouldn’t normally click on a link called “groups” or “discover”.

    Mark – I agree with you. This site is aesthetically amazing. It was done by the guys over at Neubix, who really know their stuff. I’m not sure about the terminology necessarily. I mean, it has to be labeled something. At least they’re not using heavily liturgical language.
