Frequently Asked Questions

OUR questions are intended to show how the FAQ system works, not to start a holy war.
YOUR questions will be germane to your own group's goals. Proceed thou therefore to propound thy questions in good humour.

The Website

How does the system work, and how can my organization use it?
Question: Can we change the look and feel of the site?
Answer: The main elements of the site (blog, calendar, member profiles...) each have a standard layout. This lets you concentrate on content and not functionality, letting our consistent and robust system do the heavy lifting. You can define your own color scheme, create your own text and images and generally make the site a unique product.

If you know or learn some fairly basic HTML (layout coding) and CSS (appearance coding), you can do even more. You can learn the basic operations and define your own site in a few hours; our recommendation is to implement one content tool at a time.

An easy and inexpensive alternative is to use our Quick Start option, which includes a consultation on your goals and objectives and implementation by our team.
Question: Is The Web Deacon powerful yet easy to use?
Answer: Our built-in features let you offer a rich experience without learning how to code or manage layouts. Just choose the features you want to use. Start, for example, with a simple weblog and gradually include other tools.


Your site can create an introduction to your beliefs or a full catechism. Organize your questions in any structure.
Question: How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?
Answer: This is one of the great unanswered questions. Of course, this is a silly example, but you can build one or more FAQs ranging from a welcoming overview of your beliefs to a complete catechism.

Question: How do I get started?
Answer: Our inquiry form asks some preliminary questions and requests a good time to chat. Our team is located in the western United States (Pacific time). Your first half-hour consultation is free.
Question: Is The Web Deacon a free service?
Answer: No, but it is reasonably priced, starting at about a dollar a day for small congregations. Additional editorial and quality assurance services are available at competitive rates. Performance and reliability greatly exceed the capabilities of the assistant pastor's cousin's son's somewhat technically inclined grandchild who has volunteered as your webmaster.
