Research used to compile the Outreach Magazine/LifeWay Research Largest and Fastest-Growing Churches in America lists indicates that attendance in the churches on the Fastest-Growing list has increased over last year.

Combined, total attendance was 643,727, an increase of 75,246. The lists appear in Outreach magazine’s 2010 Outreach 100 Special Issue, published Sept. 15, 2010.

To survey churches for this report, Outreach again partnered with LifeWay Research for the fourth consecutive year. Led by LifeWay Research President and Outreach columnist Dr. Ed Stetzer, researchers contacted more than 8,000 churches to gather the self-reported data used to compile the lists. The listings are based on February and March weekend attendance averages.
