Webmaster, Heal Your Church Website
Rockville, MD, May 11, 2002 (updated 01-Mar-2015) – Tired and frustrated with church and para-church websites that look like visual vestiges from the dark ages, Dean Peters, contributing author to “Son of Web Pages That Suck“, posts his own virtual 95 Thesis to the door of the Internet at http://www.HealYourChurchWebsite.com.
Armed a liberal arts degree in one hand, and a masters in computer science in the other, Dean takes his 25+ years professional experience, and takes the Church to task; or as he likes to say with some help from 2 Timothy 3:16: “Teaching, rebuking, correcting & training in righteous web design.”
Having seen the sometimes ugly underbelly that one can only see from being a volunteer teacher, webmaster, soloist, and van driver, Dean understands both the technical and the political issues that face designers of church, para-church, and secular charity organizations. HealYourChurchWebsite.com addresses these issues with practical advice, links, resources and examples in Dean hopes that the quality of church websites improves by bringing errant webmasters to repentance.
As Dean likes to tell anyone who will listen, “We have hundreds of years of beautiful sacred songs, art and literature as the result of the artistry that was once the Church — why can’t we have the same for websites?”
That said, all of the opinions expressed here are Dean’s personal views and do not reflect his employer, his church, nor any other non-Dean Peters entity in any way shape nor form.
Currently, Dean’s most pressing project is raising his daughter,serving his wife, and trying to get his home music studio back up and running. For everything else, his recommends visiting his Twitter and LinkedIn accounts.
