why chapel hill, nc?

Posted by slykwyk on November 26, 2009

We get asked why go to Chapel Hill?  Doesn’t the south have ENOUGH churches.  Well, yes and no.  Depends on where you are.

The truth is there is one number we have found in our research that makes moving to Chapel Hill a great place to start a church…

8

That is the percentage of people who – on any given Sunday – are attending a local evangelical church.  Uh, that means 92 out of every 100 people are hanging out instead of getting connected back to God.  And we are talking an area of around 100,000 people!  We like those numbers because there is NO better place to start a church than a place where God isn’t very important.

8%

That’s not a lot of people and reason #1 for heading down to Chapel Hill.  Pray that we can change that number!
