Atlanta Mega-Church Was Forced To Downsize Easter Service.

Man hard times are hitting everyone.. New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, annual Easter service was forced to leave the Georgia Dome for the first time in more than 15 years. Bishop Eddie Long said his church revenues were off by about 20 percent from last year, a significant drop...which has forced his ministry to make changes like cutting back on its televised services and focusing more on online streaming to reach more viewers -- and potential donors. Impromptu job fairs have broken out on Sunday morning to connect those able to hire with members looking for work.

Since 1993, the megachurch -- which boasts a 25,000-member congregation that is largely black and mostly middle-class -- has held its annual Easter service at the Dome, attracting crowds of up to 40,000 that have included athletes, entertainers, politicians and entrepreneurs...Sitting governors have been among those in the pews, and candidates for office have also stopped by to worship and campaign... One year, the church's motorcycle ministry roared out of the stadium tunnels on choppers as Jesus and his disciples for a modern-day twist on the story.WOW!

  1. Hello there,

    This is a time when many of the lavish churches are realizing that the black women who kept their doors open NEED HELP financially... the black churches have looooong relied on the financial support of black women who make up the majority of adults in the pews.

    Now those churches who relied on black women's guilt and generosity have realized that they need to have other income streams.

    I am not saddened by Bishop Long's plight... God is shaking up those "churches" who claim to represent Him!!
