As more churches become dependent on their church websites to deliver current information and media such as sermon podcasts, image collections, and relevant documents, Elexio has taken steps to enhance and improve the Media Center within its church website content management system (CMS), Amp Vibe, to empower churches with the best website tools available.
With website traffic now coming in from a variety of devices including smartphones and tablets, church websites need to have fluid web design that scales according to the device a person is using. The system has an improved intuitive design with more usability along with social media integration that will streamline church communication. Additional features also include customizable organization features and enhanced search capabilities.
This new version of the Elexio Media Center for our church website CMS provides the latest in design and necessary tools to equip today’s church. Its use of fluid design adapts to your platform of choice, while enhanced search and media organization continues to show Elexio’s innovative approach to church software,” comments John Connell, marketing director for Elexio.
Elexio Amp Vibe church website CMS includes unlimited storage, bandwidth, blogs, calendars, password protected areas, audio and video blocks, slideshows, photo galleries, email, opt-in/opt-out email lists, RSS syndication, and much more.

LiveEdit provides websites and mobile sites with a powerful yet simple user interface for editing and updating. The client can control all of their content with tools that are available through an easy drag-and-drop interface. The church can type or paste in text, create image galleries with sliders, re-size images automatically, insert video content, drop in YouTube videos, and create forms using the form builder.
The easy-to-use LiveEdit website solution incorporates the church’s data from IconCMO in various website layouts. It’s an attractive solution for clients that want to bring the back-end data to their church website for a personal connection with the community and its members,” comments Bill Gifford, president of Icon Systems Inc.
LiveEdit can easily convert an existing church website over to LiveEdit or create a customized design. Other features include the promo store, church QR code generator, church email marketing, blogging, unlimited web pages, and a mobile version of the church website. The mobile website can display a different view than the main website, which allows for a special church donation collection during a weekend service for a cause. This church website integration can also enhance a church’s online presence, making the community more aware of the church’s mission and allowing church members to know what’s happening.
“An effective church is one that is involved and plugged in to its community,” notes LiveEdit Co-Owner Eugene Schreder. “The most important tool you have to accomplish this is your church website. LiveEdit not only puts you in control of your website (and mobile site), but also places some amazing tools at your fingertips to inform, encourage, and engage both current and potential attendees.”
By teaming up with IconCMO, you are now able to integrate many of IconCMO’s services directly into your website and mobile site. This means people can stay on your site when checking out the church calendar or membership directory from their mobile device. It’s all integrated and cohesive – adopting your site’s same fonts and styles.
