As one of Rochester, Minnesota’s oldest downtown churches, the original website just didn’t do a good job of sharing the vision, values, and community engagement of the church. The old website was too hard to update, and not well integrated with their various tools (calendar, volunteer signup, email newsletter, etc.).


We dove right in, starting with a big-picture game plan session to determine both website and broader technology integration goals. An opportunity became clear to help the church leadership team improve their week-to-week workflow such as email newsletters, event coordination, volunteer signup, and a new online member resources center.

Together, we crafted a design vision that met all their goals and helped paint a picture of what church life at First Presbyterian is really like: dynamic, engaging, community-minded, and personal.

As usual, we are available to support the church leadership team, but their staff has been handling updates on their own with ease. We are grateful for another opportunity to serve a local organization. Visit

Wow, a big thank you to the PixelPress/BrandHoot team for your creativity, leadership, and really listening to what we needed. We look forward to your partnership for many years to come.
