I'm sure a number of FReepers have at one time been in churches that are now in desperate need of the "new evangelization."

I'm sure a number of FReepers have at one time been in churches that are now in desperate need of the "new evangelization."

Sierra Madre [CA] Congregational Church's pastor in 1970 decided he was an atheist. The congregation left, forming a new church in the next block, so then he left, too. A few ex-congregants then hired a youth pastor from a nearby congregational church to take over, and on his first Sunday the attendance was twelve, counting his wife and three children.

Since then (and he finally retired a couple of years ago), God has led at least one million souls into His family through these two churches alone and the international ministries they've fostered.
