The Origins of SteepleConnect
In 2010, Tim and Adam (below) found themselves frequently disappointed by church websites. Churches were forced to choose between paying extremely high rates for a sub-par website, or scraping together what limited resources and knowledge they had to build something themselves. Finding only mediocre website services for churches and realizing they had the skill set to address this problem, Tim and Adam set out to build an affordable, full featured platform for churches. After many months of dedicated work and a partnership with eSolveSolutions, SteepleConnect was born.
