Mega Churches In America

Once upon a time, the church was a community gathering of families in the neighborhood. Nowadays, the cozy feel of knowing the names of the 50 people in the church is no longer the norm. Any church with 2000 or more people as members is considered to be on the mega level. Check out the 30 largest mega-churches in America.
