Another emerging megachurch has been added to our annual list of megachurches and emerging megachurches, which is one of CHRISTIAN STANDARD’s most popular features. That brings to 114 the total number of churches listed as megachurches (those with 2,000 or more in weekly attendance) or emerging megachurches (those with average attendance of 1,000 to 1,999) during 2007.
The most recent addition is Northside Christian Church, Yorktown, VA, which averaged 1,062 people in weekend worship during 2007. Northside’s Easter attendance was 1,782; there were 49 baptisms during the year. The senior minister is Larry Jones. Northside’s Web site is www.northsidecc.org. (An e-mail glitch seems to have caused the problem.)
The chart/pdf that is accessible below contains the entire, 114-church listing, which is one more than appears in the printed issue of the magazine.
