9/11 fueled New York's rise in church planting movement
from Baptist Press
According to a study by the Values Research Institute and reported on the new www.nycreligion.info Web magazine covering religion in New York City, 40 percent of Manhattan evangelical churches started after 2000. That's about 80 churches. During a two-month period in 2009, at least one new Manhattan church started every Sunday. In an era when most churches are experiencing attendance declines and closings, New York City has been an unheralded aberration.
