I’ve recently had two opportunities to do websites that build and advance the cause of Christ. Check out both of these sites. GalaxChurches.org This is the new website for

I’ve been to Roanoke, Washington D.C., San Salvador in El Salvador, Managua in Nicaragua, and I’m finally in Somotillo. It still amazes me that I’m sitting in a village in the remote

Just read about the new CCLI license on ChurchCreate and I am excited!  Have you ever wondered why most churches just have video of their sermons online and don’t include the music?

Over the past year, I have done a little website design in my spare time.  I created a new website FEDesign.net to handle my webdesign and consulting, and I wanted to share a few of my recent projects with my readers.

We have more accessibility to the Bible now than we’ve ever had. You can read the Bible on your iPod, iPad, laptop, phone, xbox, and almost every other electronic device.  And now, we are getting to the place where we can not only read the Bible anywhere, but we can also listen to the Bible anywhere. I wanted to highlight

If you are interested in creating a safe online community for your church, then check out the Table Project. It officially launched today and it looks like a great solution. The best part – it’s free! In the past, I have always thought it is better for the church to be involved online where people already are signed in. Why
