10 Jahre nach 9/11 – Gemeindewachstum in New York

Diesen Post schreibe ich von San Francisco aus. Es ist ein spezielles Gefühl, 10 Jahre nach dem 9/11 in den USA zu sein. Übrigens: Der Schock löste ein starkes Wachstum evangelikaler Gemeinden in den USA aus. John Starke berichtet:

Churches everywhere in the city saw new faces on September 16. Lots of them. One report shows that 40 percent of the evangelical churches in New York as of December 2010 started since 2000. Only an estimated 3 percent of New York’s residents attend an evangelical church. Still, that figure has tripled since 1990. During one two-month period in the fall of 2009 one new evangelical church opened its doors every Sunday. The aftermath of 9/11 was a growth spurt for evangelicals in America’s largest city.
