My name is Eric Peters. I am a Christian Geek. I went to school for Computer Science & Engineering at Ohio State, and now I work for Youth for Christ USA as the IT Manager. Since I work for a ministry, my job is very broad and and includes almost every subject in technology. So needless to say, I am constantly learning. So this blog will be a lot of the things I have learned. However, I am going to write about whatever I feel like also.

Church Website Visitors: Who They Are, What They Want

After meeting with many churches about their websites, I have begun to think there is an inconsistent reality to websites. Many churches believe that a lost person will be surfing on the web, randomly find their church website, realize the error of their ways, and go to their church that Sunday. I am not going to say that it will never happen–God is all-powerful, so it can happen. However, there are really 3 different types of visitors that will account for 95% of the traffic on your church website.
