Helping the church use the web to impact the world with the gospel.
MereChurch is a service of Mere Agency. A full-service, custom web shop.
Mere was founded in 2011, bringing Matt’s broad experience in the industry to the table with our skilled team of artisans to create beautiful, effective, custom Web presences for a wide range of organizations. We believe that our work makes life a little more pleasant for people as we make the Internet a more beautiful and usable place, one site at a time.
Together, members of our team have worked on Web projects of all shapes and sizes, from internationally read, industry leading sites such as engadget.com with millions of readers a day, to excellent international ministries such as Lifeway, ERLC, and the Banner of Truth, to local churches large and small and businesses of all shapes and sizes.
