Rebirth - The WordPress Theme for Churches

Rebirth - The WordPress Theme for Churches - Churches Nonprofit

Rebirth is a Church WordPress Theme aimed at making your new church website the best one on the block! Feel free to send me feature requests if you feel I’ve missed something!

People love it!

“Stoked with this theme! The support has also been phenomenal. This theme and Justin’s support has given me the ability to get my South Florida Race Calendar site back up in a tenth of the time. Done with the theme styling and setup in a couple of days from purchase and can now just focus on the data import. The setup of another theme or event plugin would have taken me at least a week.”
“Awesome Awesome Awesome Theme!!!! Thanks So much! Had a few troubles, but they were dealt with quickly and very smoothly! You should be commended!”
“Not only have you created a very high quality and versatile theme, but you clearly stand behind your work. I appreciate everything you’ve done, the support you offer, and your level of professionalism. I would recommend your work to anyone who is seeking quality.”
