We've seen & heard different lists of essential website features, like must-have Drupal modules. Most of them are calendars, blogs, etc. So here's my tough question:
When a church wants its website to focus on bringing the Gospel to the lost, what features, elements, structure, design, modules, etc. provide the best tools to do so, both for their local community and to a global audience?
Every congregation is different and in a different community, so the details will change from place to place, but are there certain features that are nearly critical?
I would contend that interactivity (comments fields, etc.) is essential—that and contact information. But both of those are for those who come looking. It's a start, but only a start.
