Cities Without Churches

Imagine a city or town in America that doesn’t have a Christian church.  Not a soul who follows Jesus.  No witness of the Gospel. lovingutahlogo3       It seems unimaginable to most Christians in America who can pick and choose the best church to go to in their community.  There are many cities and towns in Utah that have never been penetrated with the good news of Jesus.  Image Most likely our research is incomplete, and there may be other communities that we are unaware of at this time.  But take a look at all the communities without a church.  We’ll keep looking, and we’ll keep praying for God to send leaders to plant churches in these and many other communities.  The reality in the rest of Utah is that 2-4% of the population attend a gospel/grace teaching church.  We know of about 300 Christian Churches in all of Utah for a population of 2,800,000 people.  That’s one Christian Church for every 9,333 people.  Most churches in Utah are 100 people or less.  There are less than 10 churches in all of Utah with congregations greater than 1,000.  It is highly likely that more people attend Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church on a weekend, than attend all Christian churches in Utah. If you want to know where the harvest is plenty, and the laborers are few, look no further than Utah.  Please join us in prayer for the people of this great state!
