Once you've registered an account, the very first thing it's going to ask you to do is to search for your market or your templates. We have hundreds of different markets to choose from for various small businesses, and we are adding more markets every single week. So, I'm going to search for my market templates. I'm going to go ahead and search for "church". There it is over there. Let's go ahead and select that template. Great! Let's pop in a few basic details information so Mighty Sites can generate a simple website for us. I'm going to put a city in our state or region, and it doesn't matter where in the world you are located, your church is located. You can enjoy the Mighty Sites service. We have happy users from all around the globe.

Let's click on "continue" and let Mighty Sites generate a simple website for me with the information I've just popped in. And there you have it! It literally took a couple of seconds. Let's take a closer look at what it's come up with together.

Now, the beauty of Mighty Sites we've actually pre-written content for your church as a guideline. Of course, we've also pre-selected some really high-quality images as well. They're really beautiful visually; don't look like they've been taken on a mobile phone. However, if you've got your own images, which I'm sure you do, you'll want to showcase them on your website. Make it a little bit more personalized. Maybe you don't quite offer all these services, like you don't have a children's ministry or a youth and teen program, and you have various programs and community outreach you want to advertise on your website.

So, I'm going to be showing you how to make some minor changes on your Mighty Sites website. You don't need to know coding, be a web professional in any sort of way. You certainly don't need to hire anyone either to help you. Even if you're not that tech-savvy, you can literally do it all yourself.

So, I'm going to get started and click on the first section. Pop in my email address over here for people to reach out to my church. I want to make sure that's visible on my website, so people that are interested in coming to my church can find me and get in touch with me easily. So, go ahead and check that box. Phone number - it is click to call, by the way, and that physical location, that address. The great thing about it is, when your customers or your church-goers click on the address, it will automatically take them to Google Maps so they can easily find you.

"Update Social Links" is where you can put in the various social media platforms you are active on. Icons will be displayed at the top, as well as at the bottom of your website. And "update logo": if you have a logo, go ahead and pop it in over here. Once the logo has been uploaded, you can make slight amendments. So, you can crop it, rotate it, add filters or frames by clicking on the pencil. Otherwise, click on "Save". Here on the right is where you can make the logo bigger and smaller.

Now, with Mighty Sites, as well, we pre-selected the colors. If they aren't quite suitable for your church, or you've used various color palettes that are different from this one, click on that paint bucket bottom right-hand corner. Go through the various color palettes available for you to use; there's so many to choose from. Awesome!

Now, for each section you want to make amendments to, click on "update section" directly underneath it. Head on over to "update images". This is where you can browse the device to upload your own images, search through the photo library. If you have an Instagram profile, you can actually connect your Instagram account with a click of a button, automatically pull in all those photos. And "update action", you can change those call-to-action buttons, the text, and where they link to. You can even upload a PDF file; great options to upload maybe a brochure of your church, and the various services and things that you offer at your church.

In the last section, we have a lead generation form where people that are interested in visiting you can get in touch. All they need to do is put in their details, click on "send", and you can keep track of all your leads via your registered email. You'll get a notification every time a new lead comes in. Also, find all your leads in your Mighty Sites dashboard.

Now, if you have a custom domain, go ahead and click on the button at the bottom: "connect your domain". If you don't have a domain and you really want one to make your church look more professional and trustworthy, click on that button as well. You have the option to purchase a custom domain via the Mighty Sites platform as well.

Really hope this tutorial was helpful in building a website on our platform for your church. Really wishing you guys Mighty success!
