MAX = to the greatest extent possible
imprint = to stay in your mind or memory
We aim to help people make lasting memories by building user-friendly websites, creating clear content, sourcing stunning photos, and even handcrafting lovely giftable soaps.
Our 3-pronged philosophy for clear content comes from Habakkuk 2:2.
1. Write the vision.
2. Make it plain on tablets.
3. So he may run who reads it.
Essentially, our mission is to (1) capture the vision in your heart, (2) communicate it clearly on every device, and (3) so your target audience will be able to understand it and run with it!
MAXimprint is the "dynamic duo" of the husband and wife team: Jonathan and Melissa Maxim. We met for the first time beside an InterVarsity Welcome Table at Art School in 1993 and started serving together on campus in 1994. Four years later, we were married in Pennsylvania on the 4th of July, and we have five grown children; one girl and four boys (ages 13 to 23).

Jon has been a Website, Content & Ministry Consultant since before Y2K. During the last two decades, it has been his pleasure to create over 70 websites. Jon holds two degrees, an Associate of Applied Science in Art & Design from Rochester Institute of Technology (1995) and a Bachelor of Science in Bible & General Ministry from Lancaster Bible College (1999).
Before moving with his family to the Corning, New York area in 2004 to help start a church, he worked as a Graphic Designer for DavCo Advertising and a Multimedia Designer for Sight & Sound Theatres in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. While in Lancaster, he was an ALPHA Group Leader and Website Designer for his church. After moving north, he has served several churches as a Webmaster, Media Designer, Resource Table Team Leader, Wordless Book Evangelist, Children's Ministry Team Leader, Sunday School Teacher, and Community Group Leader. Jon currently serves Emmanuel Community Church as their Communion Team Leader and as a Deacon Board Member.
Since living in the Twin Tiers Region of NY and PA, Jon has had the opportunity to work for two companies listed in Inc. Magazine as America's Fastest-Growing Privately-Owned Companies, serving as a Publisher & Content Creator for Kingdom Inc. and a Project Coordinator for Monk Development (creators of Ekklesia 360 and Sermon Cloud). After working for Monk, Jon served as a Partnership Director, Communications Director, Web Consultant & Ministry Advisor for Church Plant Media for over a decade. During that season, he helped countless local churches and national gospel-centered ministries like The Gospel Coalition (TGC), 1517 (Christ Hold Fast), Converge, and The American Association of Lutheran Churches. His most significant project for TGC was to rebrand, rewrite, rebuild, and relaunch 25 websites (within only a few days) for their Regional Chapters across the USA and Canada.
One of the most noteworthy seasons during that decade was from 2014–2015, when Jon served Tullian Tchividjian (grandson of the late Evangelist Billy Graham) and Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church as the Editorial Director & Webmaster for Liberate; connecting God's inexhaustible grace to an exhausted world, through daily blog content and resources that declared over and over again that Jesus lived, died, and rose again to "set the captives free" (Luke 4:18).
After Liberate's untimely end, Jon has been working as a Website Contractor, helping to rebrand, redesign, and redevelop many other websites, including Pirate Christian Radio (for Rev/Captain Chris Rosebrough), Copper Moon Coffee, Manatee Coffee, and Hardcore Coffee. Most recently, Jon had the unexpected blessing of building websites for a few ministries within the Anglican Communion, including Paramount Church for Dr. John Fonville, Always Forward and Next Generation Leadership Initiative (both initiatives of the Anglican Church in North America), and the Center for Reformation Anglicanism.
From 2019–2022, Jon has been a full-time contractor for Copper Moon Coffee as their Website Manager. He has built and maintained their websites using both Squarespace and Shopify. Jon also pioneers and cultivates partnerships for their Reach for the Moon philanthropic ventures, including their We Give A Cup program, where he has remotely coordinated the donation of over 110,000 cups of coffee.

Melissa loves people! Growing up as a PK (Pastor's Kid), she has lived servant-ministry up close and personal since birth. Her passion is to share the one-way love of Jesus with everyone. In 1996, Melissa graduated with a BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts) in Graphic Design from Rochester Institute of Technology. The year following her graduation from RIT, she served Open Door Mission in inner-city Rochester as an Administrative Assistant. Since then, she has served in that same role for several organizations.
Melissa's education and experience serving people make her a vital asset and resource in our branding, design, and content projects. For every website project we build, Melissa plays a crucial role in selecting, sizing, uploading, and placing all the photography and graphic design elements we use. She also migrates website content to various Content Management Systems, including pages, products, blog posts, signup forms, and sermons, and often provides feedback on new website content.
Although her work serving our family keeps her very busy, Melissa is our Office Manager and a full-time contractor (Administrative Assistant) for Church Plant Media. She answers their 800 number, assists current and future Gospel Partners by providing Tier 1 website support, manages Service Agreements, and administrates all monthly billing.
