    13. 16. <ul><li>Make sure you have a specific school web address for marketing purposes. </li></ul><ul><li>Reason – “Many websites have one domain name, and the main page shows links to both the church and school. If that is the case, purchase an additional domain to use specifically for the school and use that address as a forwarder to the existing school page on your site.” </li></ul>

    16. 19. Joel Koerschen (California, Nevada, Hawaii District) <ul><li>“ A website is not for telling someone everything about yourself -- it is for sharing how you have the ability to solve their concerns and problems.
