Megachurch Hits Theater in Multi-Site Expansion

If you needed evidence that the Church is changing, check out this story on the expanding ministry of McLean Bible Church. This type of thing seems to gather controversy; are churches like this incurring financial risk for the sake of growth, or, as they state in the article, to carry the message of Christ to unreached people?

In order to prove the latter, they might include in their expansion plans satellites in Baghdad, Tehran, Pyongyang, Kuala Lumpur, Beirut, and Khartoum ...MBC's objective is "surrounding Washington and pounding Washington" with the gospel. Hard to imagine there are too many "unreached people" in a city of over 1000 Christian churches...

McLean Bible Church here....

    Probably both: it sounds appropriate to the complexity of human nature.
