Assemblies of God Mega-Churches

The 100 or so largest churches in the Assemblies of God

I wanted to see where the largest A/G churches were, and to find out what constituted a “large” church in the Assemblies of God. A quick search turned up the 2004 Statistical Report for the Assemblies of God. I quickly whipped together this list, not thinking to look for the latest 2005 report. :: sigh :: So, I went back and added the latest numbers from the ’05 data and added about 14 churches. I didn’t drop any from the ’04 report, assuming that two years wouldn’t have made a dramatic difference.

I now supply the list for you to browse and explore. I have added links to the church homepage, media page (if any) and weblog (almost none). Enjoy!

    Uncle Raisin Discusses A Rockford First Assembly and WQFL Problem

    UncleRaisin.com is a website that specializes in bringing stories to communities about local leadership that breaches the public trust they have been given. In this story at uncleraisin.com you’ll read about Rockford First Assembly (#74) owned Christian radio station, WQFL, and their association with the local abortion business. Read about it, and don’t forget the blog. Thank you.

    Uncle Raisin, Editor

    Evangel World Prayer Center in Louisville has left the Assemblies of God and only on paper has that many members. Truthfully, if it has half that number I’d be surprised.

  31. Manny says:

    That’s a pretty cool list. Thanks for doing the work in gathering it.

    Thank You for all the work you put into this. If you are looking at updating this, I am a member of Victory assembly of God. We are now calling areselve Victory Worship Center and we have just mooved into our new bulding. the building seats 2200 and we are running 2 services and have about 4000 in attendence now.

  35. Ed says:

    Just some FYI Evangel World Center led by Bob Rodgers is not part of the Assembly of God org. Bob left them in favor of partnering with Yonngi Cho of South Korea in 2006. Money was the motivator. There are many interesting things coming to light within many of these organizations and I am actively investigating some of them.

    Just thought I would update you on Evangel.
