  1. We just released our second theme, Exodus. I’d love to see it added to your list. Resurrect has been a very popular choice.

    What do you think?

    1. Steven,

      Thank you for your comment.

      This theme collection was not updated for a long time but now it is up to date with latest and greatest WordPress themes for churches. We have made sure to include Exodus theme on this collection as well.

      Let me know if/when a new theme is released by ChurchThemes and we will feature it here as well.

  2. This is a good list. Thank you for including my Risen and Resurrect themes. We’ll be releasing more at churchthemes.com

  3. You’re welcome! It is always nice to feature great themes.

    Church Themes happens to be your only WordPress related venture or are there others as well? And how well it performs since you are into a very specific niche?

    1. churchthemes.com is my sole focus now. Risen’s performance on ThemeForest has shown me that there is a demand for good church WordPress themes. Resurrect is doing well and we have another in the works (Exodus). It’s our plan to continue developing church themes as well as our framework and functionality plugin which are both freely available to other developers.

      I wrote a blog post with some background on this venture: http://stevengliebe.com/2013/09/25/behind-churchthemes-com/
