The Baptist State Convention of North Carolina (BSC) plans to launch its new website May 15.
The redesigned website, www.ncbaptist.org, represents months of planning, research and evaluation. The entire site, from programming to design and layout, was completed in-house.
“Our goal was to design a site that would serve as a valuable resource for our North Carolina Baptist churches,” said Brian Davis, BSC executive leader for administration and convention relations. “We designed this site with our end user in mind, and we pray that it will more effectively meet the ministry needs of those seeking information and resources from the Convention.”
The site was designed based on feedback from online surveys, focus groups with BSC staff and the Communications Committee of the BSC Board of Directors. The BSC mission, vision and values are represented in the new site, as is information about the Convention’s new five-year strategy to impact lostness.
Site navigation has been streamlined to make it easier for N.C. Baptists to connect with their areas of interest. Navigation is now based on ministry areas and the Convention’s core values. Social media is integrated throughout the site, and the site features more capability for video and audio elements. Resources can be accessed from a tab on the home page. Visitors can access an updated staff directory and event calendar, photo galleries, newsletters statewide church directory, and the latest news articles about N.C. Baptist life.
