I spent a whole day looking for all these templates but couldn’t find something that suit my needs. Maybe because I’m not a designer (I’m a developer) I’m not seeing the real possibilities when it comes to customizations.
So, what i need is someone to help me pick a template and customize it acording to the specs bellow. The reason I’m trying to customize an available template is to reduce costs if compared to creating something from scratch. I’m donating this job to a non profit organization and I really don’t have much money available
HERE IS THE THING
Even though the website is for a church, I’m looking for something modern and elegant. Here are 3 templates that i like (it doesn’t mean you have to pick one of these 3, it’s just to show you the kind of style that makes me happy – my taste
You can say they are different from each other but they all have something in common: they are modern, elegant and clean.

CUSTOMIZATIONS – REQUIREMENTS
A ) Instead of a “full width” slider, the sleader must share it’s space (width) with a static, something similar to this page:
Home page – Recent articles with thumbnails, poll, tweets and featured videos. You can get an idea from here (by the way, i love this template but I’m already using it for other project):
C) Home Page – Recent blog posts.
D) Home page – Random picture gallery. Random thumbnails which will be grabbed from the pciture gallery.
E) I need a way to keep a header with the pastor’s pciture on every page.
Here is an example of what I’m trying to achieve (I just like it more clean and well organized): http://www.joelosteen.com
NOTE : I only need the template, I will implement all functionality myself (using ASP .NET).
If you are interested, please send me your quote, mockup and/or a url of the template you are planing or sugesting to use.
Thanks in advance.
