Seacoast Church is a leader among multi-site churches with 9 distinct locations and one on-site venue, for a total of 10 campuses with 18 different services. They have 7,000-7,500 attenders on the weekend and around 500 small groups that meet during the week in homes. The average age is mid-30s with some campuses leaning heavier to either side of that median age. They describe themselves as a non-traditional church whose goal is to be transparent, real and relevant with excellence, without coming across as a “show”.
They want their web site to be a place where the first-time visitor can get more information and check out the church. They also want the site to be a source of information and resources for the congregation. They also utilize a number of blogs, including a general church blog, campus blogs (Long Point, Irmo, Greenville) and ministry blogs (Small Groups, Children’s Ministry).
