So many Mega-Churches (not really)

It’s easy to think that there are tons of mega-churches out there (mega-church is defined as 2,000 or more in attendance weekly).   It’s true that we are living in the era of the mega-church, as new mega-churches emerge each year in the USA.    However, there are not as many mega-churches as you probably think.

Case in point is the Southern Baptist, the largest Protestant denomination.  Of the 46,000 Southern Baptist churches, 177 are mega churches (and two of them are in Hendersonville, TN).[1]

Personally, I love mega-churches and small churches.   Anytime God’s people gather in the name of Jesus, the world is a better place.
