Open Doors USA
Open Doors is an international non-profit ministry that supports and strengthens persecuted Christians. Open Doors was founded in 1955 by Brother Andrew from Holland. Moved with compassion for those isolated in the Soviet Union, Brother Andrew’s first mission was to smuggle Bibles behind the Iron Curtain. Open Doors’ outreach includes Bible and Christian literature distribution, leadership training and assistance, Christian community development, prayer and presence ministry and advocacy for the persecuted.
The team at Open Doors was satisfied with the functionality of their current site, but felt that the design was very dated. They wanted something new and eye catching, that would immediately engage visitors and encourage them to explore the site. The new design strategically utilizes images that demand immediate attention from the visitor. Unique interactions such as content sliders on interior pages provide new and interesting ways to display content.
The GearBox powered website includes integration with multiple third party tools, including online donations, blogs, and commenting.
