A church WordPress theme built by a pastor for pastors.
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.
P.S. We use the same church theme for the church I pastor, Bent Oak Church.
