Our church was looking for both a web hosting service and a new membership database. I was tasked with finding an alternative that would provide us with both for a reasonable price, which was not an easy task! After much research, I came across Online Church Solutions. The array of features they were offering was almost unbelievable for the price. Not only were we able to almost seamlessly make the switch, but the personal support provided by Mark is second to none. But perhaps most importantly, it’s a solution that is constantly being developed and improved. New features are being added and user input is not only welcomed, but encouraged. What more could you ask for?
Inga Edwards, Administrative Assistant at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church – Walden, New York
As a small church single-staff pastor, I don’t have a lot of time or dedicated resources to develop and maintain an inviting, professional-looking website. That’s one of the reasons I love Online Church Solutions. Mark and his team have made things so affordable and easy that even the smallest churches can have a beautiful, functional website. Not only that, the Church Management Software, multiple email accounts, sermon podcasting, child check-in and all the other features provide thousands of dollars’ worth of capability for a price that almost any church or church plant can afford. Seminary didn’t train me to build and maintain a website, but Mark is always there when I need him. Online Church Solutions has the best combination of features, usability, pricing, and customer service I could hope for. I enthusiastically recommend them!
Jim Drake, Pastor at Parkview Baptist Church – Bluefield, Virginia
Our former site was a WordPress site and while I’m proficient in WordPress (I built my own business site) when it came time to build our new church website I felt there must be something better. WordPress is strong and with plugins you can do a lot but it means cobbling things together. Thank goodness for Mark and the Online Church Solutions Team! Because of them we were able to create a robust website for our church that already comes with all the tools we need such as online giving, visitor tracking, calendar, membership directory and more. It makes for a more seamless website and saves us money by bringing many different tasks under one roof.
Paul Zimmerman, Holy Cross Episcopal Church – Tryon, North Carolina
We are a smaller, rural church with a full-time senior pastor and a part-time administrative assistant. I initially came across Online Church Solutions when looking to add podcasting to our existing website. Several things stuck out about OCS. Mark and Alisha have a background in church planting and church ministry. They know what tools churches need and are constantly rolling out both new tools and revamping existing tools. The user-friendliness of their tools is fantastic and the results are way better than that DIY home project you tried last summer. The price point of OCS is unmatched. Every church faces the juggling act of “what we need” versus “what we can afford”. OCS provides a wealth of church management tools at a price that any church can afford. In a digital age, you want the people behind your church management tools to be people who deeply care for and believe in the ministries of the churches they serve. Mark and Alisha at OCS are those people.
Zane Officer, Pastor at Libby Baptist Church – Libby, Montana
Many of the visitors we have had this past year have come because they found us online and have appreciated our website. Having a low website building IQ, I am thankful for the easy tools you have created to make a simple but dynamic website. Keep up the good work.
Michael Cordich, Pastor at First Baptist Church – Glendora, California
Our challenge at the small church I pastor was how to produce a good website at a price that fit into our budget. Prior to joining Online Church Solutions (OCS), we had a website that we produced ourselves on the WordPress platform. But we were also limited by our time and expertise. Then I came across OCS and began looking at all they offered at a price that, quite frankly, is unbelievable. It's not always true that you get what you pay for - OCS breaks that rule - we get so much more! I am so thankful for Mark & Alisha’s heart for ministry and to serve churches. They are very responsive to their customers in every way, it feels like being part of a family. I feel like our church can grow with OCS and the features that are included beyond the website side. I get excited thinking about how we might be able to utilize these tools in the future to be more effective shepherds of our flock or servants of the Gospel for our community. We are thrilled to be with OCS!
Adam Tisdale, Pastor at North Hills Church – Meridianville, Alabama
OCS has been a huge blessing for our church. Not only is the price hard to believe, but Mark and Alisha work hard every day to make it better and better. They are always there to answer questions and help however they can. I highly recommend OCS.
Cleve Calcutt, Life Groups and Outreach Pastor at Greenwood Baptist Church – Florence, South Carolina
Everything has been wonderful and absolutely easy to set up. I have gotten a great number of compliments from viewers since I got back to updating and setting this website up. Thank you very much for making this an easily accessible (both in price and lack of web design knowledge) ministry tool for churches to use.
David Thorne, Worship Leader/Youth Pastor at Goodyear Baptist Church – Picayune, Mississippi
For the last several years my office used another service for our web site. To me it was always clunky and less than fun to work with. For several months I had looked at several options for changing service but always was disappointed with the pricing or user interface. I recently received an email from Mark at Online Church Solutions. On a whim I clicked on the link. Boy, I'm glad I did! I found what I had been looking for...simple, powerful, and reasonable with a great user interface. I also found great customer service via phone, Facebook, and email. I recommend you check out the service for yourself. You won't be disappointed!
Ken Kirkley, Director of Missions at North Spartan Baptist Association – Boiling Springs, South Carolina
If I could give OCS ten stars I would. OCS has changed the way we view website builders! Mark has been nothing but helpful and understanding. If you are switching website builders or simply just want a Christian based site then I suggest OCS, trust me you won't regret it! They have all the tools we are looking for, and it is easy and fun to work with! It's the one of the best decisions we ever made. Can't wait to see what this wonderful company has in store for the future.
Gabby Fischer, Office Manager at First Presbyterian Church – McPherson, Kansas
If you are a church looking for a low-cost website with mobile app for an amazingly low price, check out Online Church Solutions (OCS) and talk to Mark. You will be amazed at how affordable it really is. Our church just switched from our web provider of 9.5 years to OCS and the service and quality is amazing. We couldn't be more pleased.
Dr. David W. Coram Sr., Senior Pastor at Living Waters Fellowship – Oak Grove, Kentucky
To be brutally honest, when I came across OCS during my research for a new church website, I thought they had to be a scam of some kind. After researching them as thoroughly as I could, they checked out, so our church took the plunge- and I'm so glad we did! Their pricing is much better than anyone else, the support is quick, reliable, and ministry-focused, and the CMS (content management system) blows everything else I tested out of the water. These folks genuinely care about making sure ministries and churches of all sizes have the best websites possible, and this motivation shows in their enthusiasm, dedication, and the near-constant flow of new features and abilities through the CMS. Usually, if something seems too good to be true, it is; OCS, however, is the real deal.
Kyle Collins, Associate Pastor at Cornerstone Baptist Church – Pampa, Texas
Beautiful design…easy to use platform…simple to maintain…affordable, these can all be used to describe Online Church Solutions. In a time when real customer service is rare…when it is often difficult to even speak with a live person, I am totally impressed with the attention given by Mark. As we were planning a complete redo of our website, I sent inquiries to a few companies, and received a reply from Mark in less than an hour. It didn’t take long to realize that this was the right company. Even though his platform is simple, I’m not a 'techie' person, so I needed some help and advice. Once he even went the extra mile and made a quick video to walk me through a question. Our new site is wonderful, and I enthusiastically recommend this amazing man and company!
Larry Poe, former Worship Pastor at Four Corners Baptist Church – Davenport, Florida
I had an amazing experience. I was very grateful for all the help you gave me. I loved the YouTube tutorials on everything in case I didn't know how to work anything. Overall, it was a very easy to use program, and even a kind of fun experience. I would definitely recommend any church to use Online Church Solutions!"
Hannah Clark, Summer Intern at Good Shepherd Baptist Church – Scott Depot, West Virginia
Online Church Solutions is more than just some company. Mark and Alisha are people who understand what you need in a website and strive to make it just right for your needs. Their service is second to none...and that includes the prices! They are SUPER helpful and responsive once you are set up, but after about a week of use now, I am discovering the website is very easy to update and change on your own without assistance. Without reservation, I highly recommend Online Church Solutions!
