Megachurches out of america now have a higher average attendance

Despite American roots that reach back to the 19th century, megachurches abroad now have a higher average attendance, even though the vast majority of megachurches are still in the United States. While there are 230 to 500 such churches elsewhere in the world, the Hartford Institute estimates that there are about three times more megachurches in the United States. In the United States, the median weekly attendance is about 2750, while the median weekly attendance in world megachurches is nearly 6000.
