...and if you're Catholic or Lutheran, forget about it, because St. Ambrose and Guardian Angels and King of Kings don't exist.

St Ambrose, King of Kings and Guardian Angels are not considered megachurches. The catholic diocese determines what church you go to, much like school boundaries do in schools. King of Kings is getting settled back in after their pastor of many years left. We are blessed in this area to have many choices in which to worship God... I am thankful for that!

No doubt they want your tithe, plus more, to support all that media equipment.

Ah yes, another well established church for over 10 years. I agree with Taxifour tell the people what they want to hear and your going to get a Mega following too. The world has over 30,000 Christian churches all branching off in different directions, but it has one root. The Catholic Church. Churches are not here to entertain, rather they are here to teach.

Sounds wildly popular. Maybe they could create a clothing line next? Eagle Brook has a nice ring to it.

remember the famed Crystal Cathedral? the bigger they are... it won't be long before we hear about internal power struggles, the big tithers demanding their share of power. other than that, it's like sitting still while you are told what to think, believe,who your friends should be; like organized brain-washing of the unwitting.

Article didn't mention where preachers' jets would be parked. Don't these huge churches usually provide mega-planes for their leaders?

This is no longer religion. It's show business. Big buck show business.
