Jakes Divinity School (JDS) integrates faith, scholarship, and integrity with the practice of ministry. Through degree, diploma, and certificate programs, JDS looks at their Founder, Bishop T.D. Jakes, as an example of success from the curriculum’s main areas: the art of presentation, leadership, entrepreneurship, global humanitarianism, entertainment, and media. The mission and vision summarize the school’s objectives clearly: to form leaders for innovative ministry in the Church and society, and to prepare men and women for excellence in both local and global ministry, as guided by the power of the Holy Spirit and with faithfulness to Jesus Christ.
The main goal of this website redesign was to increase brand awareness and drive enrollment for Jakes Divinity School. This online school has a diverse campus that offers inclusiveness for all prospective students. While capturing attention with an updated look and feel, the site reels in each user’s visit with statements of personal fulfillment and growth and the ultimate goal of positively impacting the community and world.
Ironistic provided custom website design and development and a thoughtful website strategy to transform Jakes Divinity School’s online presence. By determining their business goals, we organized the site to enhance the user’s journey and showcase student experiences in the virtual classrooms.
To increase brand awareness, we used a Curator.io plugin to pull in their Instagram page. Users can also now view student testimonials posted to share experiences and shape the community, then access a “Contact Us” form that is available on all pages. This shows users that members of the JDS team are available for questions at any step of the process.
