Hey Look, a Mega-Church!

November 1, 2005 by

You’ve got to love how the press continually rediscovers this odd concept of mega-churches. And they’ve been doing it for 30 years.

A couple interesting articles from last week on mega-churches, including an overview on Willow Creek’s 30th anniversary and an interview with pastor Bill Hybels.

Another article looks at Crossroads Community Church in Cincinnati, Ohio. Finally we have an overview of mega-churches in Metro Detroit, which includes details on Catholic churches super-sizing to deal with a shortage of priests, and Mormon churches that split when they reach 600 members.

All cool stories of different things churches are doing, though I wish journalists would stop looking at mega-churches with wide-eyed wonder. This isn’t a new concept.
