Selecting a Church Architect, Part I
Building a church requires careful attention to visual details. If your architect isn't sensitive to the visual character of their own website, why would they be more attentive to your church? Churches also increasingly require the incorporation of technology...if your architect can't even stay current with the design of their website is she likely to be on top of technology trends? The worst websites are often from 'design-build' organizations, which says something, I think. The website of a thoughtful architecture firm will also convey something of their design sensibility--traditional, modern, avant-garde. Your first clue to a firm's character, and whether or not they will be in sympathy with your project, is its website. Take it seriously.
