About Truevine Web Design
The Roots Take Form
Several years ago, Dave Henderson was hired as the web designer/developer and content manager for an electronic parts and sourcing company. Here, he learned how to look beyond flashy graphics and fancy layouts and really analyze how to build a good web site from the ground up. After a few great years there, Dave realized that his passion was bigger than a single web site.
That led him to a position at a web design and development firm where he could pour his passion for building great web sites into one customer after another. It was here, with the help of some very talented people, that Dave learned how to create not only professional-looking web sites, but web sites that had real functionality and value for their owners long after the initial build was complete.
The Vine Grows and Strengthens
Dave noticed a recurring pattern that nearly every small business owner wanted: a great looking web site built for a reasonable price that they could actually update themselves when complete. In his opinion, all that just wasn't possible for a bigger design firm focused on larger companies. For that reason, and with the help and support of his wife Susan, Truevine Web Design was born in 2012. Applying principles learned through many years of experience, Truevine has grown steadily creating great web sites at affordable prices with custom-built content management systems that actually work for their owners!
Why the Name Truevine and the Reference to the Bible Verse John 15:1?
In a vineyard, the vine is the main trunk of the plant. The branches depend on the vine for their life, for their vitality and nutrients. The vine is the source, the tap of these things to the branches. The vine is the means of support, literally as well as physically, to the branches.
Without the vine the branches have nothing. That is why they have to be connected to the vine. We believe it is this way, spiritually, with Jesus and His people. His relationship to them and ours to Him is such that He is the Vine, the source of our life, our strength, our salvation. We depend on Him for everything, just as the branch depends on the vine for everything. It is in Christ that all the nutrients of God's grace that we stand in need of are found.
