WordPress Staff Widgets

Featuring a staff list on your church website makes it effortless for visitors to learn about the dedicated team serving within the church community, and get in touch. Staff Widgets allow you to add Members from your Amplify Website account onto your Amplify WordPress Website. These widgets are styled to match your chosen Theme and can be reused, restyled, removed, and re-added to pages throughout your site.
