You can create parent page to display all testimonials under single template using child template option. This way, user can see all testimonies on one page.
Staff and Leaders : Churches need a custom page to share all people who are working for their organization. This post type can add details about all the people along with Featured image, Name, Position etc. You can assign them under specific group stating position level or group name.
The Saved WordPress Theme can prove useful for small or big churches and NGO sites too. Many people prefer to visit church sites to access sermons as it is not possible for some people to visit all sermon meetings. So churches can use single website to share future events, multiple locations, contacts, donation links and everything.
This is highly SEO friendly and mobile ready responsive church theme for WordPress. It shows a floating message bar on bottom right corner that shows selected message or link all the time everywhere on the site. We highly recommend this theme to churches, NGO and Fund raiser organizations.
