Google Business View Your Church

If there's anything I'm unfamiliar with and curious about I simply Google it.  You likely do the same thing.  Before I visit a restaurant, store or even a church; I Google it.  I want to find out everything I can before I go there.  

Before moving to New York we toured many neighborhoods via Google Street View.  It's crazy how you can essentially walk down a street and look in any direction.  Before we even visited the city to look for an apartment in New York we had virtually walked hundreds of streets!

Google has released a new feature called Business view where people can not just see your church on the outside, but the inside as well.  Take a look at Community Bible Church below:

I hope you will take a few minutes to walk the halls and visit both worship venues.  These virtual tours are not only found on Google, but can also be embedded into your site.  

Before you get freaked out by everyone seeing everything at your church, know that you choose what people see and don't see.  You coordinate a Google Photographer and choose what rooms you create a virtual tour for and which ones you don't.  Also know that this isn't a free service from Google, but something you pay for.  Well, the Google part is actually free, but the photographer you have to pay.  

Have questions?  I would love to answer them!

If you live in San Antonio, I highly recommend Roy Reynolds who shot everything for us at CBC.  Here's his contact information:
