Calling all wordpress gurus! I’ve been surfing ThemeForest for sometime and I’ve been waiting to see a church theme to buy. I’m sure I’m not the only one.

With so much talent on this site, I’m sure somebody can create one easily.

Most Church websites have: 1. Homepage with a “video display”, “calendar”, “latest news”, “main image about 250px high and the width if the site”.

2. Video archive page

3. Calendar page

4. Bulletin page

5. Ministries page (I would think it would be setup like a portfolio page).

6. Store page (Maybe)

7. Maybe a footer that’s 250px

Is this a request… Yes, kind of. But, I think if done right it can be a best seller. I wish I can code for wordpress because I would have done it. So, I leave it to the pros.

- Good Designing

I just launched a few wordpress sites, that I just re-designed and then made into church sites. I didn’t change too much.

www.acworthchurch.com www.rebuildgeorgiayouth.com www.thepinflow.com

I am doing another now (www.gacogop.org).

You can make the existing themes on this site pretty much do what you want.

I’m doing the same thing with an html theme: www.umcpleasanthill.org. I’m in the beginning stages but it seems doable.

It would be nice to see dedicated church themes. I think there is a market for them. There are so many small churches with even smaller budgets that could benefit from professional church themed templates.

I’ve done it with other themes turning them into church sites, although a Youth group template is needed as that is harder to change.

Here’s an html theme that would make a great youth group site…http://themeforest.net/item/my-portfolio/17735. Maybe someone could code it for wordpress.

I would definitely be in the market for this. WP is such a perfect solution for church (cheap, easy, straightforward) that is all i want to throw into this mix.

I actually just made my first theme for Theme Forest – a church theme! It was unfortunately rejected, so I’d love some feedback!

Your theme is ok but a little plain. Church websites are quickly becoming on par with other websites. Check out this list of top 90 church websites: http://churchrelevance.com/resources/top-church-websites/. Vandelay design also has a list of great church websites: http://vandelaydesign.com/blog/galleries/best-church-websites/.

Take a look at this church site from River City Church: http://www.rccjax.com/

Church sites have come a long way!

@sunschild57: The top 90 church websites is exactly what I’m looking to see as WordPress templates on this site.

My favorites are: http://www.hopeingod.org/, http://www.centralchristian.com/home.asp, http://www.thecommunitychurch.org/pages/page.asp?page_id=31839, http://www.kingsfieldchurch.org/ Just to name a few.

I think it would be awesome if someone can create WP themes like these.
