Christianity Today covered the release of the Hartford Institute for Religion Research’s major report on megachurches with an article titled, “U.S. Megachurches Are Getting Bigger and Thinking Smaller.”

The report, based on a recent survey of 582 megachurches, showed three times the number of megachurches with multiple sites in 2020 compared with 2000.

Churches are adding services as well as sites, the report showed. Dr. Scott Thumma, Professor of Sociology of Religion and Director of HIRR, was interviewed in the article about the models these large churches use for preaching.
