We're a web design agency who is all about nonprofits and churches thriving in the digital world.

Whether you’re a church or nonprofit, our web design team helps lift your voice and reach the people you want to serve.

Who We Are

In 2016, James Lemmons, the founder of Yemba, and his family adopted a young girl from Africa. When she arrived in America, she didn’t know any English. She only spoke Lingala—the native language from her home country. Consequently, for the first few months, James and his family struggled with the language barrier. When speaking with their daughter, one word came up constantly, yemba. At the time, Lingala wasn’t on Google translate. Finally, after lots of searching the internet and talking with their daughter, they realized what it meant—to sing. Similarly, that’s what developing your own website and marketing can feel like: lots of Googling and searching, but never knowing if you’re doing it right. That’s where we come in. When you work with our team at Yemba, the uncertainty stops. We have the knowledge, experience, and drive to build a site and develop a marketing plan that puts your organization on the map. Whether you’re a church or nonprofit, we can make your online presence sing. We know what it takes to run a nonprofit. Our team is made up of non-profit board members, a pastor, church goers, and former nonprofit employees. Trust us, we’ve been there! So, no matter what your organization needs, we’re here to help your team make some noise.
Here at Yemba, we value our relationships with our customers. We’re committed to providing exactly what your organization needs to be successful. Therefore, we won’t oversell or overcharge you.

Our team has a knack for listening well and digging deep to discover solutions to the problems you know exist and the issues you may not have even discovered yet.

We know how hard it is to run a church or nonprofit. Thus, we pride ourselves on delivering cost-effective and personalized web services that benefit your organization.
Our biggest joy comes from working alongside you and your team to help your church or nonprofit grow. Therefore, we’ll do whatever it takes to make your job easier.
