One of the interesting things I found out over at Outreach Magazine is a list of the fastest growing churches in the U.S. for 2006. The data is based on membership gains for 2005. Go take a look. Is your church on the list?
Here are the top 13 fastest growing chuches according to the report:
1. Lakewood Church gain in ’05….12,000 members. The picture is from the inside of Lakewood Church. Wow!
