I was contacted by brother Edward Elizondo of Fredericksburg Baptist Church in Fredericksburg Texas over the weekend. Edward is the brother of Rudy Elizondo, Pastor of Marion Baptist Church, one of our supporting churches. Edward contacted Rudy to find out if Rudy knew of anyone that could help FBC get a website online.
Fredericksburg Baptist Church’s pastor retired and they have a new pastor.
Fredericksburg Texas is a community of about 10,000 located about 70 miles north of San Antonio. According to Edward, there are many tourists coming through Fredericksburg.
They wanted to get a web presence back up in part so tourist can find their website, and so home bound members can listen to sermons.
After some discussion about a domain name the church settled on the available domain name fredericksburgbaptist.org (I had no idea how many Fredericksburg Baptist Churches there were out there).
Edward and I discussed what the church wanted to accomplish with the website and I he picked out a template. I set up a WordPress installation for him with a SSL certificate.
I spent a couple of hours on the phone with Edward and we set up the Fredericksburg Baptist Church website. He has been able to make some updates, and has a person in church that will be able to spend some time with him and give him some more one on one training.
