race and US churches

Can Megachurches Bridge the Racial Divide?
...the proportion of American churches with 20% or more minority participation has languished at about 7.5% for the past nine years. But among Evangelical churches with attendance of 1,000 people or more, the slice has more than quadrupled, from 6% in 1998 to 25% in 2007.

  1. Hybels partners with James Meek's Church in Chicago. Meek's pastors an AA mega Church on Chicago's southside. That's not unusual among Evangelical Churches or Catholic Churches in metro Chicago.
