Evangelical Megachurch Switches to .Church Domain Name

Evangelical Megachurch Switches to .Church Domain Name

An evangelical church complex drawing over 70,000 weekly attendees has reported changed its domain name to .church. 

Life Church, an Oklahoma-based megachurch with 24 campuses, lost a 185,000 dollar bid to adopt the name last year. But the church has now switched from .tv to .church, a change that its administration says is a step in the right direction. 

Bobby Gruenewalk, Life Church’s innovation pastor said, “We believe the transition to Life.Church creates the opportunity to share and talk about the church in a natural way. Plus, it’s a more effective way for people to find and identify us as a church, too.”

Nearly 13,000 websites also use the .church domain, Christianity Today reports.
