We build websites for faith communities.
Then we guide you through the process of shaping your website, e-newsletter, and social media platforms into one unified message: building stronger community engagement online.
Built for your staff.
We built Guiding Outreach to help your staff (and volunteers!) manage the operations of your church communications more efficiently and with greater impact based upon our combined 40 years experience of working with (and attending) church, faith-based camps and campus ministries.
Impacting your community.
We didn't set out to build just another website company - we have plenty of those out there. We aim to provide guidance, tools, training and a roadmap to effectively connect with your community over the internet.
Here's how it works
Discuss with leadership
We understand the importance of getting leadership on the same page with a united goal. Download our Decision Maker's guide to make an informed decision.
As you change leadership, staff and volunteers your messaging doesn't have to die. We help get the next faithful servants up and running quickly - maintaining your investment.

Connect with your community like never before.
Build the pipeline.
Once you begin working with Guiding Outreach you'll see how easily things will fall into place. Guiding Outreach has a simple step-by-step approach to gathering information needed to create your personalized website and streamline your content.
Build the platform.
We will take your unique logo, colors, and images and put them into your new website, which is optimized for both desktop and mobile platforms.
We can embed your Google Calendar, a Google Map and your Facebook feed within your site.
With Guiding Outreach, you can easily use MailChimp or Constant Contact to stay in touch with your community. Your new website will have a place for you to post your own blog to share your weekly/monthly reflections, as well as have a donation page so your community can support you.
Train your staff & volunteers.
One of the biggest advantages of Guiding Outreach is that it is run by church-going people who are here to help you spread the Gospel. We are available via phone or email whenever you have questions - except maybe on Sunday mornings!
Your website is your biggest communication tool and you need it to stay in tip-top shape. Guiding Outreach will continue to check your website, update your plug-ins and troubleshoot any tech issues you may have. Afterward, we'll send you a quick note confirming this and provide tips & tricks to keep your site looking its best.
This is how thriving ministries do it these days.
Religious institutions are at a crossroads these days. They are either thriving or dying. The ones that are thriving all have this in common: clear communication. We are here to help your ministry rise above the noise of today's world.
