    FAQs

    ———

    Does my church have a website?

    Because churches are responsible for their own website site, and because those websites are not always a template initially set up by the Division or General Conference (the old Net Adventist sites), we can not say.

    To find out if your church has a site:

    1. Head to Google
    2. Type in your church name and “website”.
    3. If your church has a website, it’ll likely be listed somewhere on the first result page.

    What is Adventist Place?

    What does an Adventist Place website look like? What does the Adventist Place admin area look like? Who can sign up? What if my church already has a web presence? What does it cost? How do I get started? Got more questions?

    For answers to these questions on Adventist Place sites, visit www.adventist.place/faq.

    Someone at my church created an Adventist Place site and I can’t get into it.

    Contact Adventist Place at https://support.adventist.place/category/121-contact-us.

    Someone at my church created a custom (non-Adventist Place) site and I can’t get into it.

    Unfortunately, we cannot help with this. You will need to contact the individual who contracted/developer who created the site and/or the domain and hosting provided. There is no way for us access this information. For churches opting for this route, we HIGHLY recommend have a protocol in place that ensures multiple trusted individuals have access to the site and to it domain and hosting account. Once domain and hosting lapse, it can be difficult and expensive to impossible to get that domain back.

    I need help with my Adventist place website.

    There is outdated contact information on my page that need changing.

    How do I connect a Domain name?

    We would like to have custom-built website. Can the Conference build it for us?

    Due to limited capacity, Greater Sydney Conference does not provide custom built websites. You will need to hire a professional or company that can build a custom website for you. However, we can provide some guidance on your website built. Get in touch!

    Where do we find branding resources for the site?

    SPD Branding guidelines and assets can be found here.
