In 1998, ChurchWebsites started as a Christian-owned website development company designed to meet the needs of churches and christian businesses. ChurchWebsites, a subsidiary of Churchwide Communications, offered affordable website creation and hosting services. However, we soon discovered that many churches did not have the same capital or operating budgets of many secular businesses. Oftentimes, the cost of developing a new website from scratch was prohibitive for a growing church. In addition, the task of maintaining the site required a maintenance contract or finding a church volunteer who would become the church's programmer. These "stumbling blocks" kept many churches from being able to launch the kind of website that was necessary to communicate their message.

    Church Revitalization is a movement within protestant evangelicalism, which emphasizes the missional work of turning a plateau or rapidly declining church around and moving it back towards growth. It is lead through a Church Revitalization Initiative, which is when a local church begins to work on the renewal of the church with a concerted effort to see the ministry revitalized and the church become healthy. Church Revitalization means that the local church knew how, at one time previously, to renew, revitalize, and re- establish the health and vitality of the ministry. One of the challenges for the laity in the day in which we live is that they have lost the knowledge of church renewal and no longer want to cultivate the skill sets necessary to see their church experience revitalization. Even sadder is when a congregation does not have the corporate memory that there was a day when the local church was reaching people for Christ Jesus and active as evangelistic witnesses into their community.
