Blessed by megachurches

Since no church is perfect, I say “amen” to “Don’t knock megachurches” (Letters, April 16). More Americans are becoming skeptical or disaffected with Christianity or religion in general. This includes millennials and Generation Z. In 1 Corinthians 9:22-23, the Apostle Paul says, “I have become all things to all people, that I might by all means save some. I do it all for the sake of the gospel, so that I may share in its blessings.”

I have been personally and professionally involved with America’s megachurches for nearly 50 years and have witnessed their effective outreach and growing diversity. Which is why I encourage more traditional churches to closely examine and consider trying the best of these methods of contemporary outreach. Spiritual and numerical growth are both joyful and rewarding aspects of our church life.
