These days, almost any small organization should have a website. With costs being extremely low at the entry level, it’s becoming difficult to imagine a reason for any organization of any size not to have a website. Many user-friendly, free and open-source content-management systems are available to assist with Web design, so it is even possible to build a basic small organization website.
Indeed, we in the Philippine Annual Conference are very happy and proud to launch our Website intended to interconnect all the District Conferences and to broadcast news updates relative to the mission, vision and goal of the whole United Methodist Church. Finally, we have our own Website which can be of great link that will lead to understanding the very essence of the entire United Methodist Church Organization especially in the Philippines.
Increasing visibility is one major factor that we consider in creating and having this website. Even if people have heard about the Philippine Annual Conference, they may want to search more about its programs, activities and contributions to the welfare and trust of the whole organization and to its ministries. This website will not only give us the credibility but it will also help us to give the impression that our congregation is becoming bigger and more successful. Anyone who can have the link to our Website will have the opportunity to know more about us, our people, and our church.
Thus, kudos to those who believe that having this Website means a lot. At last, we have one and we are hopeful that it will be an effective instrument for continuous communication, socialization, and information dissemination for all members and non-members of the Church who might have the interest to join us and be one of us in the future.
