Huge Chapels Go Forth and Multiply


LOUISVILLE - As megachurches continue to swell in attendance on Sundays, they're also multiplying in number in Kentucky and across the country.

About 2,700 people attend Valley View Church in southwestern Jefferson County, more than double from 2001. And Highview Baptist Church, which was drawing about 2,000 people to one campus six years ago, now has five locations across three counties, drawing 3,500 people a week.

Louisville's Southeast Christian Church remains the state's largest church, with weekly attendance of 19,000.

Southland Christian Church, in Jessamine County just outside of Lexington, has been called the state's second-largest, with average attendance of about 8,000 people.
