Sorry, Protestant churches of the Lower Hudson Valley.
None of you made made the Church Report’s list of the 50 most influential churches in America (they mean Protestant churches, although CR doesn’t bother to say it).
But don’t fret. The entire Northeast is hardly represented.
All we get is “Brooklyn Tabernacle,”:http://www.brooklyntabernacle.org/ a diverse, fast-growing Pentecostal church, at 17 and “Redeemer Presbyterian”:http://www.redeemer.com/ in NYC, an active, church-planting, white-collar congregation, at 23.
Number 1? The granddaddy of megachurches, Willow Creek Community in South Barrington, Ill. Number 2 is Rick Warren’s Saddleback in Lake Forest, Calif.
Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Houston is number 7. T.D. Jakes’ Potter’s House in Dallas is 9.
