Hats off to the team at Factor 1 for creating a great looking site for us. We gave them a few points about who we are as a church and then really let them run with the ideas. I believe what we ended up with is a truly unique site that is not only easy for us to manage, but also speaks volumes about Canvas Church. Thanks again guys!
