Megachurches Represent Large Enterprises In the Name of God

The term "megachurch" refers to very large, Protestant congregations that share distinctive characteristics including:

* Weekly worship attendance of at least 2,000 people

* A charismatic, authoritative senior minister

* An active 7-day-a-week congregational community

* Several social and outreach ministries

* Complex organizational structure

It is important to note that megachurches may share characteristics but are not identical.
