A church-plant located in St. Louis, MO, The Storyline Church serves the MO-IL metropolitan area. There are less than 10 evangelical churches in their focused neighborhoods, most of which are on the decline, with over 53,000 residents in these neighborhoods. Storyline’s vision is to connect God’s story to your story, and the story of their city. Hatfield Media was delighted to assist The Storyline Church in building a new website for their church plant.
Client: The Storyline Church
The Storyline Church’s name stems from their belief that there is one story that leads to the good life, the story the church has gathered around for centuries ‒ the gospel of Jesus Christ. This focus is what drives Storyline’s mission to reach people with the gospel, disciple them into a relationship with Jesus, and multiply them throughout the world.
Josh and Cherish Wilson were focused on the gospel story long before sensing a call to plant The Storyline Church in St. Louis, MO. A graduate of Southern Seminary, Josh served as staff pastor at Sojourn Church in Louisville, KY for eight years. Through a series of events, he and Cherish found themselves prayer-walking at Francis Park in St. Louis Hills in July 2019 where they sensed the Lord leading them to start a new church in the area. They are more than excited to plant roots in St. Louis in order to share the gospel story with their city.
The team members at Hatfield Media felt a personal connection to the shaping of The Storyline Church’s website and the ministry it represented, knowing Josh and Cherish on a more personal level. Lead Front-End Developer, Steve Clark said, “ It was cool working on The Storyline Church project because it felt like I was a little bit involved in some way. Since they are a new church-plant, we built a system that would be low maintenance.”
"We built a custom website, providing an online home for The Storyline Church. The multi-page site includes resources for church visitors, information about the church’s history and beliefs, bios on church leadership, and a module for adding sermons and sermon series. In addition, the site includes integration with RebelGive to streamline the giving process," explained Hatfield Front-End Web Developer, Mary Hawley.
"Already having a great logo and excellent branding, Storyline came to us with the need for a sleek, easy to navigate site,” said Hatfield Graphic Designer, Brian Ott. “It's always such a pleasure to build a site for a client who trusts your skills and to work with the foundation of a well thought-out aesthetic. I enjoy working with a cohesive brand like Storyline's, and then envisioning how that brand should translate on to the web."
The Storyline Church’s founder, Josh Wilson had similar feelings, saying “Rachel Smith and the team were inspiring to work with. Their experience and skill came out in both the design and useability of our website that has helped us connect with many new people in our community.”
Now living in South City, St. Louis with a mixture of 30 people from Louisville and St. Louis, Josh and Cherish and their family are united in their hope of God’s grace, committed to living in Community with one another, and devoted to reaching their city with the good news of Jesus Christ. The Hatfield team was thrilled at the chance to work with The Storyline Church in building a new website to aid them in their endeavors in St. Louis.
“The team at Hatfield Media helped us share both who we are and what we are about at Storyline Church through the design of our website and the content displayed on our pages,” said Josh. “Having a website we are proud of and excited to share with others is a big deal to us!”
