About Our Websites
Steve Dennie, Communications Director (and Webmaster)
Churches occasionally contact me for suggestions regarding their own websites, and to see how we do things. Here, for those interested, is a description of how this site and the related sites were put together.
We’ve had a website at UB.org since 1997. It has gone through several major revisions since then. The current site went live in December 2016. It was designed by Clear Elevation, a design firm which was half-owned by Huntington University, our denominational college.
We host the site with Nxilmedia.com, a firm out of Oklahoma City which specializes in websites for megachurches. We’ve been working with them since about 2010 with several different websites.
The UB Global website went live in the spring of 2016 using WordPress. It was redesigned in 2021 by Reusser Design in Roanoke, Ind., and now uses a content management system.
UBCentral was launched in November 2009, and has gone through several editions. The current version was designed by Clear Elevation around a WordPress theme. This is our official news portal, the place where we publish the latest happenings across the denomination. Many people subscribe to the UB Daily News, an email which includes all news posted during the previous 24 hours.
Our online church directory runs out of a Filemaker database, and has been live since 2011.
