My name is Chase Replogle. I’m the designer and developer behind the Church Theme. I’m also the pastor of Bent Oak Church in Ozark, MO. For the past 5 years, I’ve been bi-vocational. Serving as a pastor and also running a freelance web design company. Most of the work I do is with non-profits and businesses. Often these projects can last several months and costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. Most churches don’t have that kind of money to spend on a custom website—even if you do, it probably wouldn’t be money well spent. Most churches want to have a great site, but struggle to find a solution. I wanted to solve that problem, once and for all—a great church website regardless of a church’s size or resources. This theme represents everything I have learned and know about not only the needs of churches but best practices in the web design industry. We both know that a website isn’t the answer to all of the challenges of ministry. But one less problem to deal with sure helps.
