Businessweek has created a short list of the most popular churches in America. Lakewood Church in Houston, TX (where Joel Osteen is the pastor) is at the top of the list.
I can’t say that I’m really surprised by this. A weekly attendance of 43,500 is pretty extraordinary. It feels like Lakewood services are on every TV network. Plus, Joel Osteen has a number of best selling books.
Here are the churches that rounded out the rest of the list:
2. LifeChurch.tv, Edmond, OK.
3. Willow Creek Community Church, Chicago, IL
4. North Point Community Church, Alpharetta, GA
5. Second Baptist Church of Houston, TX
