I wonder what local church that has been in existence for more than 7 years is the fastest growing church in the U.S. If percentage of growth over the past 7 years is used, I suspect that Gig Harbor Church of the Nazarene may be it.
2005 26 (Linda and I were still at ENC)
2006 43 (Linda and I were back for half the year.)
2007 53 (We lost our pastor 2 weeks after the district assembly.)
2008 78 (We had supply pastors for the entire year.)
2009 132 (The first year that Steve Gates was our pastor.)
Using 2005 as the base year, we have experienced 815% growth. Do you know of a faster growing church?
Somewhere there must be a church that had 1 in 205 and now has 20.
