In a previous blog, I responded to a request to list all megachurches (worship attendance 2,000 and above) in the Southern Baptist Convention. This time I am responding to a similar request to list all the SBC midmegachurches (worship attendance of 1,000 to 1,999). There are about 35 churches that did not report that would likely be on this list. By the way, all of the megachurches and midmegachurchers only account for 1.5% of the total churches in the SBC. The denomination is still a convention of mid-size and smaller churches, since 98.5% of churches have a worship attendance below 1,000.

    Hank -
    I could make a good guess at the 35 churches based on previous years’ data submissions. Since I don’t have their current numbers, however, I can’t list those churches with certainty of our accuracy.

  2. Phil N. says

    Since all churches of 1,000 or more attenders only account for 1.5% of total CHURCHES, what is their percentage of total ATTENDANCE in all churches?

    Phil -
    It’s a great question, but I don’t have the calculations available. I do plan on getting that information this week. In the meantime, accept my rough calculation that 1.5% of the churches in the SBC account for 23% of the worship attendance. We’ll see how good my estimates are when I get the precise numbers.

    My church is on the list. Not only does my pastor ridicule the small churches from the pulpit as being churches not doing anything for Christ…the total worship attendance listed for my church is extremely exaggerated. I am reminded of one of the 7 things God hates…

    Dr. Rainer, these are interesting statistics. Do you know roughly, what percentage of SBC churches are in the 500-750, and 750-1000 attendance ranges?

    I was on staff at one of these churches 2 years ago. It ran 700 on a good Sunday. They have since decreased in attendance.

    I left a comment a couple of days ago but notice it has not yet been posted. It was a question about baptism ratios in SBC churches. It really is of interest to me. If this particular post is not the proper forum for that question, I’d be happy to have a private response to my email. terrydorsett@charter.net

    I think it would be interesting to see the Sunday School Attendance numbers of churches over 1000 in attendance. Can you please supply that from the Annual letter information.

  9. Phil N. says

    Dr. Rainer, Were you able to get precise numbers on the total percentage of attendance these mid-mega churches represent (cf. Sept. 5 Comments above)?

  10. Phil N. says

    I did find this quote from a post today by Dr. Randy Stone of NOBTS: “80 percent of Southern Baptists attend churches with more than 1000 in worship each Sunday, about 7 percent of the 45,727 congregations in our denomination.”

    Just checked out your web site and blog…noticed your attendance numbers. Not sure who gave you the numbers you used for Stonegate Fellowship in Midland, TX but our worship attendance is 4000 now.
    Just wanted to update your numbers.
    Thanks,
