A Burden for the Northeast
In the year 2000, the red highlighted area of our country had over 50,000,000 people. This area contains about 17% of the US population on less than 2% of the nation's land area.
The city of Wilmington is located in the middle of this massive population density. Wilmington is location between Philadelphia, PA and Baltimore, MD.
Pray for souls to be saved, and local churches to be planted in the Northeast.
Church Planting in America
1900 - there were 28 churches for every 10,000 people
1950 - there were 17 churches for every 10,000 people
2000 - there were 12 churches for every 10,000 people
2004 - there were 11 churches for every 10,000 people
In 1900 the US population was a little over 76,000,000
Today the US population is over 300,000,000.
As our country's population increases churches are disappearing. There is a great need to reach millions of people in our own country.
3,500 Churches Close Their Doors in the US Every Year
If we do not see churches planted in the Northeast we will lose America.
What can you do?
