Staff bio pages are an important aspect of any church or nonprofit’s ‘about’ section. It’s a great way to show the faces behind your organization and encourage website visitors to connect with your team.

However, it may be hard to consider what all you need to include on a successful staff page. Below, we discuss 3 things you need to include and ways to make your staff bio pages fun and engaging.

Name, photo, and job title

Let’s start with the basics. While this may seem self-explanatory, it doesn’t make them any less important. Whether you’re a church or nonprofit, when a web user visits your staff page they want to know who your team is, what they look like, and what they do.

It’s also important to keep this information up-to-date. If someone gets promoted, changes their last name, or leaves the organization, make those changes on your staff page.

Short bio

Short bios are a great and easy way to give more information about your team and make your staff seem more approachable.

You can include your education, work history, family, and even hobbies. This can help you make a connection with those visiting your website. Web visitors may be more likely to visit your church or get connected with your nonprofit if they can relate with the faces behind the organization.

Contact Information

If you’re really looking to connect with your website visitors, it’s important to give them a way to get in touch with your team. The easiest way to do this is to include each staff member’s email (or phone number if you prefer) at the end of their bio. And, if you’re comfortable, you can even include links to social media accounts,

This encourages interested parties to reach out to ask questions or get involved.

Make it Fun

Your organization’s staff bio pages are a great place to let your team’s personality shine through. Encourage your staff members to make their bios as fun and personal as they want. Or, you can even get creative with the staff photos (like this animal clinic that includes each veterinarian’s dog in their headshot.)

Whatever you decide to do, make sure it shows your team’s personality or reflects the vision of your organization as a whole.
