Back in 2009 I put up an “unofficial” website for First Navajo Baptist Church in Crownpoint New Mexico. It was one of 1500 basic “websites” that were put up for the Baptist Ministries database we were building back in 2009. The Baptist Ministries Database is a link based system, so in order to provide something to link to I built “Unofficial” web pages.
This offended some people, so over the years I changed the name to a “placeholder” page (I find it ironic that Facebook has no called their pages “unofficial” with a host of other service providers).
These web pages provided contact links and a link to Gospel tracts (which have taken over 78,000 hits over the years)!
Several weeks ago I was contacted by the pastor of First Navajo Baptist Church in Crown Point New Mexico requesting I provide them with an official website.
While they are still working on what content they want on the website, they have decided on a domain name (firstnavajo.com) and have added some basic information.
It looks like I will be maintaining the website for them (at least initially) and updating it as they are able to provide content).
I registered the domain for them, and installed a WordPress website. It was an interesting problem trying to find their location on Google maps without a street address (their church building IS on Google maps if you can find it).
Crownpoint New Mexico is a small town with a population of less than 2500 people. It is a blessing to help this small church that is ministering to this small town and particularly to the Navajo people.
